Census Bureau to hire about 300 area Charleston residents

An article in the Post and Courier written by Dave Munday on Friday, January 2, 2009 announced some good news for job seekers in the Charleston area.  The Census Bureau is recruiting 300 workers to get ready for the 2010 census. For those looking for a job or extra income, this might be the ideal job because you can work from home either full time or part time with pay expected to start at $14/hr! Workers will start by verifying addresses and eventually knock on doors for those that don't return the forms. The Charleston office will open in November this year.

To set up a time to fill out paperwork and take the test, call the Census Bureau's Charleston office at 323-4020 (1-866-861-2010 for those outside the Charleston area) or visit the Census Bureau web site.

The census is very important on many fronts. It will determine where state and federal dollars will or will not go and well as new district lines being redrawn.  SC has the reputation to be the most uncooperative state in the nation regarding the census with less than 60% of households responding to the 2000 census. That's why the bureau will hire locals to go door to door for those that do not return the census forms.

Michele, people should know that the federal job application process is pretty daunting, but in this economy is well worth the hassle!
