2020 Census Applicant Days - Work for the Census!

2020 Census Applicant Days - Work for the Census!

Thursday, Jan 30, 2:00pm to 6:00pm

April 1, 2020 is Census Day and only 2 months from now! The Census Bureau needs to hire a lot of Madison residents to ensure a complete count of everyone who lives here - especially people who will not initially participate by phone, mail, or website. Recruiters from the U.S. Census will be spreading awareness and helping people apply on the spot with Applicant Days. Following up with every missed individual requires the work of many Census Takers. It's a great part-time job that will pay $22/hour in Dane County. (ages 18 and up)
