The U.S. Census Bureau updated population counts. 

The U.S. Census Bureau has launched a recruiting initiative aimed at teachers, administrators, support staff, students (at least 18 years old) and parents to apply for summer jobs in Texas County.

The Census Bureau is asking school superintendents, administrators, principals, educational organizations and unions and the faculty of public and private universities, colleges, vocational technical schools, high schools as well as the broader educational community to help spread the word about census summer jobs.

2010 Census door-to-door field operations have just begun so the U.S. Census Bureau needs to hire and train hundreds of local residents as census takers in the next few weeks. These jobs are ideal for teachers (active, retired and substitute), students (at least 18 years old), parents, older siblings and just about anyone looking to earn some extra income this summer.

To be eligible for employment, applicants must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, take a basic skills test and pass a background check. Applicants will need to furnish two forms of ID such as a driver’s license/state issued photo ID card and a Social Security card or a U.S. passport. The Census Bureau will continue to recruit and hire census takers until July.

These are temporary, part-time jobs that offer reimbursement for mileage incurred while doing census work. Census jobs offer great pay, flexible hours and paid training. The pay for census takers ranges starts at $10 per hour.

Interested persons should call the recruiting line at 1-866-861-2010 to learn how to apply for Census Summer Jobs.
