|Census Looking for Workers, Tests Scheduled in Galesburg
|POSTED 9:23 a-m 12/4/09 The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting temporary, part-time jobs for the 2010 Census.
These short-term jobs offer good pay, flexible hours, paid training, and reimbursement for authorized work-related expenses, such as mileage incurred while conducting census work. Best of all, census jobs are located right in our own community.
Census jobs are excellent for people who want to work part-time, those who are between jobs, or just about anyone who wants to earn extra money while performing an important service for their community.
Each applicant must take a 30-minute basic skills test consisting of 28 multiple-choice questions measuring knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform a variety of census jobs. There are five parts to the test: Clerical skills; Reading skills; Number skills; Interpreting information and evaluating alternatives and Organizational skills.
The exams are given on specific days throughout December at the Galesburg Public Library. Testing dates run through the end of December and take place at the Galesburg Public Library. Testing dates are December 7, 9, 10, 15, 17, 28 and 30. Questions may be directed to 1-866-861-2010.
Every 10 years, the Census Bureau takes a snapshot of our population, determining how many people reside within the nation's borders, who they are, and where they live. The results help determine your representation in government, as well as how federal funds are spent in your community on things like roads, parks, housing, schools, and public safety. As a census employee, you'll play a vital role in making sure that everyone is counted.
Contact the Census Bureau for additional information at 1-866-877-8339.
