Census Bureau To Hire 400 Workers in Louisville
Friday January 23, 2009
Employments Tests Scheduled at Metro Buildings
Jobs start at $10.50 an hour
The federal government plans to hire about 400 people in Louisville to help prepare for the 2010 Census, and many city libraries and government buildings are serving as testing sites for employment.
From now until late March, people interested in working for the Census can schedule a time to take the required test at numerous locations across the city (dates and locations attached).
“We are happy to team up with the Census Bureau to help people find employment in this difficult economic time,” Mayor Jerry Abramson said. “These jobs will help put people back to work.”
Jobs include office clerks, recruiting assistants, crew leaders and field operation supervisors. Pay starts at $10.50 an hour, depending on the job and location.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens, age 18 and older, and pass a basic aptitude test. Most jobs require a valid driver’s license and use of a car. To schedule a time to take the test, call 866-861-2010.
“It’s important that we have qualified people who know their communities to help develop our confidential address list” said William W. Hatcher, regional director for the Charlotte Regional Census Center, which supports 2010 Census operations in Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. “These important jobs offer good pay, allow flexible hours and permit people to work in their communities, for their communities. Census jobs count in many ways.”
