Recruiting Continues for Census Takers
The Loudoun Workforce Resource Center is hosting two U.S. Census Bureau recruitment sessions March 2 to help fill hundreds of census taker positions.
The enumerators are needed to canvass door-to-door in Loudoun neighborhoods from spring through summer 2020. Census takers will interview members of households that have not responded to the census to collect census information. The positions may be part-time and flexible and have a starting pay of $25 per hour. Paid training for U.S. census enumerators is provided. Applicants must be U.S. citizens with access to reliable transportation.
Taken every 10 years, the census determines how much money communities receive for aid programs, such as school meals, crime victim assistance and housing vouchers. It also affects how state legislative districts are drawn and the number of congressional representatives for each state.
The recruitment sessions will be held at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon on Monday, March 2 at the Workforce Development Center at 102 Heritage Way in Leesburg. The sessions also will be offered at the county’s Eastern Loudoun Service Center, 21641 Ridgetop Circle, Suite 101 in Sterling, at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
No registration is required, but attendees should bring their own technology (phone, tablet, laptop) or plan to use a library computer to access the online application and assessments.
