  1. I know some people who work for the Census Bureau… definitely is a decent job to get some extra cash.

    Just be prepared for rejection!

    I’m sure the goverment is very picky about who they take on. You have to be ready to pass a backround check and take a test. But most goverment jobs are like that.

    Thanks for the comment My Life ROI

    I took and past the test for the 2010 cencus and would like to know if I am being considered employment. Please let me know by e-mail. Thank you, Claire Silverman

  4. Christopher Holdheide says:

    Claire, I’m not sure you would have to contact the Census Bureau to find out for sure. I do know they were assigning jobs earlier in the year but as far as getting a job you will have to go to and email them to get an answer.

  5. I gather spelling and grammar aren’t necessary if the spelling and wording in your explanation are anything to go by! What’s a ‘cencus’ (do you mean ‘census’?) , a ‘bearuea’ (do you mean ‘bureau’?) ‘goverment’ (do you mean ‘government’?) and do you mean ‘you’re’ when you say ‘if your looking for….’?. This isn’t meant to be a snide remark about whoever compiled the details but if a certain standard of education is required for any government temporary appointment I think perhaps applicants should be told to avoid the disappointment of rejection.
    But thanks for the information.
