Apply for Census jobs!

*espanol abajo*

The U.S. Census Bureau needs to hire 500,000 people across the country in order to count every resident. Starting pay in Boston is $25/hour, the schedule is flexible, and the employment is temporary. Bilingual candidates are highly encouraged to apply and non-citizens may be eligible depending on hiring progress. These jobs are crucial for making sure hard-to-count communities get the funding and representation they deserve! We'll have Census staff available to assist with the application and laptops on which to apply!
