We Count

“06880” is a blog, not a job bank.  But when the US government needs help filling jobs, we’re happy to do our part.

So:  Tomorrow (Friday) at 10 a.m. in Town Hall, the Census Bureau is hiring workers to help with the 2010 count.

Workers — officially called “enumerators” — will conduct in-person interviews with people who have not returned census forms.  There may be some evening and weekend work. 

Applicants must be at least 18 years old; have a valid Social Security number, and pass a 30-minute multiple choice test.  Bilingual speakers are especially needed.

Applicants should bring their U.S. passport or a photo ID, as well as their birth certificate.  Veterans should bring their DD214, for proof of Veteran Advantage Status.

  1. While he did not say it, I imagine Dan W signing up…

    Picture Woog knocking on your door. “I remember when you moved in. How are the kids?” He’s already all over town and knows almost everyone.

  2. So is that a good thing,or bad?

  3. Definitely a good thing. I envy your ability (and opportunities) to interact with so many different people.
