2020 United States Census Jobs

Census2020

By April 2020, households across America will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 United States Census and the City of Winooski will be assisting the United States Census Bureau in their efforts to complete this important initiative. Comprehensive information will be available in the coming months outlining how Winooski residents can participate and the importance of doing so.

Work with the 2020 Census Team

The U.S. Census Bureau is currently recruiting thousands of people across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count. A variety of temporary jobs will be available including census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff, and supervisory staff. The City of Winooski invites our community members to learn more about and share these employment opportunities!

Visit https://2020census.gov/jobs to get started today.

Why Apply?

  • Earn Extra Money

Could you use a little extra income? Jobs for the 2020 Census offer competitive wages that are paid weekly. Authorized expenses, such as mileage, are reimbursed for employees doing fieldwork.

  • Support Your Community

Decennial census data are used to determine your representation in Congress, as well as how funds are spent for roads, schools, hospitals, and more. Help ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the next decennial census.

  • Fit Your Schedule

Temporary positions for the 2020 Census feature flexible hours—a perfect fit if you are looking to earn a little extra money, even if you already have other commitments.

  • Be a Part of History

Every 10 years since 1790, the United States has undertaken the momentous task of counting all of its residents. This is your chance to play a role.

To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, have a valid Social Security number, and be a U.S. citizen. A valid driver's license is required for all positions that are not physically located in the Burlington Area Census Office at 58 Pearl Street.

Why It Matters

Hospitals. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community. Each year, the results help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities. It's also mandated by the Constitution: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.
