Next week, the U.S. Census Bureau is holding informational recruitment events in Arlington from Oct. 22-24. These events will be held as a part of a nationwide effort to answer questions about jobs and the hiring process with the goal of recruiting temporary workers for positions beginning in the spring of 2020. Census Bureau jobs are critical to ensure a complete and accurate census for Arlington in 2020.

The Census Bureau needs to hire about 500,000 census takers across the country in 2020. 5,000 will be hired in the DFW region. In order to meet this goal, the Census Bureau is starting peak recruiting efforts now. Applying early to work as a census taker is a great way for holiday seasonal workers, students, retirees and workers in the gig economy to line up spring and summer employment opportunities.

Census Bureau officials and partners will be available at select Arlington public libraries on Oct. 22, 23, and 24 to provide information on the hiring process, and those interested can use the public computers to submit an online application.
