Attention Potential Applicants:

The U.S. Census Bureau continues to accept applications for temporary part-time positions with the 2020 Census. Although many job offers have been made, there is still an opportunity for jobs to be offered.

Attention Applicants who Have Been Offered a Job:

Beginning March 18, 2020, in support of guidance on what we can all do to help slow the spread of coronavirus, 2020 Census field operations will be suspended for two weeks until April 1, 2020. The U.S. Census Bureau is taking this step to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of the public, our employees, and those individuals who are in the process of being hired for temporary census taker positions. You are still selected for the position. However, all fingerprinting operations are suspended effective March 18, 2020. If you had an appointment, it has been cancelled. This is a temporary suspension and we ask that you bear with us as we work to keep you and the general public safe and healthy. Please check the fingerprint website on April 1, 2020, for further updates.

In addition, we are working diligently to provide additional information on how and when you will be trained. In some cases, training will be delayed in order to maintain public safety. Training will include social distancing measures. Please be patient as the training details are finalized. We will provide more information as it becomes available.
