In light of the current recession and the high unemployment rate — particularly among younger adults who make up a large portion of CityBeat
’s demographics — we’re publicizing an employment opportunity that also benefits the public interest.
The U.S. Census Bureau is accepting applications for jobs related to conducting the 2010 Census in the Greater Cincinnati area. All candidates must be at least 18 years of age and available to work part-time or full-time throughout the year. Residents of all Cincinnati neighborhoods are urged to apply, as most people will work from their homes in or near their own communities, according to recruiting assistant Myra Caulder.
Applicants will be required to take a timed test of basic skills in reading, math and map-reading. To download a practice test or get more information, visit the Census Web site
To schedule a testing session near your home, call the downtown Cincinnati Census office at 513-766-3020.
Please note: Michele Bachmann supporters need not apply.
