Our nation is gearing up for its decennial Census, where everyone in our county is counted. This is a massive undertaking and part of preparing for that is hiring local citizens as Census Takers. This is a temporary job, only lasting 8 to 10 weeks.
In our area, that position pays $14 an hour and you are reimbursed 0.58 a mile for all driving. This job can be performed in conjunction with another job, as many do this on their off time or on the weekends.
