Loudoun County Hosts Census Jobs Recruitment Sessions in October
The Loudoun Workforce Resource Center is hosting a series of information sessions with the U.S. Census Bureau in October to recruit for and fill U.S. census enumerator positions.
Hundreds of U.S. census enumerator positions are needed in local Loudoun neighborhoods from early spring through the summer of 2020. These positions will be part-time and flexible and have a starting pay of $25.00 per hour. Paid training for U.S. census enumerators is also provided.
The U.S. Constitution requires that a census of the country’s population be taken every ten years. In 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau will use new technology and will allow people to respond online and by phone as well as the traditional mail response. Enumerators will interview members of households that have not responded in order to collect census information.
An accurate count of Loudoun County residents is important to the community in many ways. The count affects the allocation of federal funding to the county and affects how legislative districts are drawn, which can impact the number of seats that the state has in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Board of Supervisors established a local Complete Count Committee to raise awareness about the 2020 Census and to help increase the response rate to the census questionnaire. More information about the census and the Loudoun County Complete Count Committee is online at loudoun.gov/2020census.
Attend one of the information sessions at the Loudoun Workforce Resource Center throughout October to meet with U.S. Census Bureau staff and get employment application assistance. Three sessions will be offered on each of the following days: October 4, 11, 16, 25 and 31, 2019. Each session will last from 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes. Business casual dress is recommended for these events. To register for a session, visit loudoun.gov/wrcworkshops.
The Loudoun Workforce Resource Center is located in the Shenandoah Building at 102 Heritage Way NE in Leesburg. For more information, contact the center at 703-777-0150 or visit loudoun.gov/wrc.
