The largest number of openings are for census takers. In areas where the Census Bureau has local offices, clerical jobs are also available. In addition, there are a few supervisory and recruiting outreach positions. You can apply for these jobs with one application; the online process will guide you.
Apply, and with one application you may be considered for several positions, including census taker, recruiting assistant, office clerk, and supervisory staff—and help your community while getting paid.
Jobs for the 2020 Census are located throughout the United States and Puerto Rico and include both field and office positions.
To be eligible for a 2020 Census job, you must:
• Be at least 18 years old.
• Have a valid Social Security number.
• Be a U.S. citizen.
• Have a valid email address.
• Complete an application and answer assessment questions. (Some assessment questions are available in Spanish. However, an English proficiency test may also be required.)

• Pass a Census-performed criminal background check and a review of criminal records, including fingerprinting.

Most jobs require employees to:
• Have access to a vehicle and a valid driver’s license, unless public transportation is readily available.
• Have access to a computer with internet and an email account (to complete training).
If you are employed elsewhere, your current job must be compatible with Census Bureau employment and not create conflicts of interest. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Also, you must not engage in any partisan political activity while on duty.
