The U.S. Census Bureau is currently recruiting temporary workers in Oak Park to help carry out the 2020 census. Work is expected to last several weeks. Available positions include census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff and supervisory staff.

Census workers have flexible hours and receive paid training, competitive and weekly paychecks. Some positions require evening and/or weekend work. Most positions require a valid driver's license and access to a vehicle or public transportation. Access to a computer with an internet connection is also required of most census jobs. 

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen with a social security number, pass a census-performed criminal background check and commit to completing job training. A valid email address is also mandatory for census workers. 

Interested parties can fill out the application online at www.2020census.gov/jobs. The process takes roughly half an hour to complete.
