The 2010 Census - A Great Way to Earn Extra Money NOW

Please note that the US Census Bureau, an Equal Opportunity Employer, is recruiting NOW to hire over 1400 applicants for temporary part-time census takers for the 2010 Census in the Capital District. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will be hired.

The goal is to have at least 7,000 qualified applicants from which to choose. The field staff pay ranges from $15.00 to $16.50 depending upon the job, the hours are flexible, and the work is close to home. CALL 1-866-861-2010 toll free to apply.

To do your best on the Census qualifying exam, applicants may want to take the practice test which is available here:

Census taker jobs are excellent for retirees, college students, persons who want to work part-time, persons who are between jobs, or just about anyone who wants to earn extra money while performing an important service for their community.

Every 10 years, a census of our population is conducted. The results help determine your representation in government, as well as how federal funds ($400 Billion ) are spent in your community on things like roads, parks, housing, schools, and public safety. As a census taker, you'll play a vital role in making sure that everyone is included.

All census takers must be able to speak English, but bilingual skills in English and other languages are needed in communities that have a large number of residents who speak a language other than English. Spanish testing is available if required. If you have such skills, we encourage you to apply.

Besides good pay, you'll have flexible hours, paid training, and the chance to work within your own community. You'll earn a place in history, as well as work experience you can add to your resume.

For additional information, go to:

Tests will be offered in the basement of Draper Hall at the downtown UAlbany campus. Please call to register beforehand at the local office (can be obtained by calling 1-866-861-2010). There will not be any tests offered next week but they will be offered again as of February 22 on Monday and Friday mornings at 10:00 am. Always register beforehand!
