​Census Recruitment Event Takes Place Friday in Raleigh

Thousands of Jobs Still Available in Wake County

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting thousands of workers in Wake County for temporary jobs in advance of the 2020 Census. The Atlanta Regional Census Center reports there are 2,256 employment opportunities remaining in Wake County.

A special NCWorks Bus Tour will roll through Raleigh on Friday in an effort to fill these important positions. The Wake County Complete Count Committee encourages interested candidates to stop by the Avent Ferry Shopping Center, 3215 Avent Ferry Road, any time between noon and 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24.

The bus is equipped with 10 computers so people can apply for jobs on the spot. Census jobs provide excellent pay, flexible hours and paid training. To be eligible, applicants must be at least 18 years old, have a valid social security number and pass a background check.

Jobseekers may also apply online. The 2020 Census Jobs website allows applicants to apply for a range of positions.

The 2020 Census will shape many different aspects of Wake County. Results are used to help determine:

  • How more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities. These funds are spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs.
  • The number of seats each state gets in Congress.
  • How state and local officials draw boundaries for congressional districts, state legislative districts and school districts.
