Jobs open for census takers

The Census Bureau has released an interactive map that shows that Plumas, Tehama and Butte counties need to hire more census takers. The jobs begin at $18 per hour, even more for supervisors. Applications are available online at www.2020census.gov/jobs.

The hours are flexible around existing work schedules and are great for students, anyone just entering the workforce, retirees, or anyone with a full time job who just wants to make extra money.

The Census Bureau makes every effort to hire locally so that census takers are familiar with the neighborhoods they are assigned to work.The bureau has been working with Plumas Rural Services and the Business Career Network, who are providing computers for applicants to apply.
