Everyone Counts
The Census Bureau is aiming to hire approximately 500,000 census takers in communities nationwide to help conduct the once-a-decade count. 

The Census Bureau is working hard to recruit and hire local census takers from the communities they will be counting. Working for the 2020 Census is the perfect opportunity to reserve your place in history and help your community shape its future, all while earning extra income.

Applicants can qualify for both field and office positions. The office positions, which are more limited, will be located in area census offices. The role of these offices is to recruit, select, hire, train, manage, and pay all office and field staff who work within the designated boundaries of the geographic territory assigned to the office. The positions are temporary with varying pay ranges. For Census Takers, the pay starts at $14.00/hour.
 
Applying for one of these jobs is simple. Just visit 2020census/jobs or call 855-JOB-2020 and select option 3 for more information. Pay rates for field and clerical jobs can be found at 2020census.gov/jobs/pay-and-locations .
Those who are being considered for a position will receive a telephone interview. If offered a job, they will receive instructions on next steps via email.
 
Applicants will need to complete paperwork online and make an appointment to get fingerprinted for the background check. Once they are offered the job, there will be a period of time before their start date to allow time for the background clearance process.

Most applications will remain active throughout the 2020 Census and may be considered as positions become available. Apply today!

By working for the Census Bureau, our community has a special opportunity to help make the 2020 Census an accurate and complete count. There are so many reasons our nation
needs to be counted completely and accurately. The count happens every 10 years with the decennial census, which influences how more than $675 billion from more than 100 federal programs are distributed to states and localities each year. Here’s some of what the census numbers effect: Medicaid, school lunch programs, community development grants, road and school construction, medical services, usiness locations. If you’re interested in a job, please visit the Census Bureau job site to apply. You’ll also be able to see descriptions and frequently asked questions at 2020census.gov/jobs .

Chinese Chamber of Commerce Training Event
A diverse group of 20 people joined the Chinese Chamber and HCDC at their conference room site to host a Small Business Compliance Workshop on October 25. Small business owners, especially those with language and cultural barriers, were encouraged to attend and learn from county officials and supervisors about the most common compliance issues facing small businesses. The Midwest USA Chinese Chamber of Commerce organizes such workshops to support the community working together to reduce and ultimately eradicate the most common problems plaguing businesses such as fire and health hazards, human trafficking, diversity inclusion and mutual respectfulness. After the workshop, participants enjoyed refreshments and the opportunity to talk with each other and the speakers individually so they could further explore their interests.
