Jobs fair at Queens Borough Hall to recruit workers for the 2020 Census
The upcoming job fair is just one of the ways Katz and her Queens Complete Count Committee are helping to make sure the 2020 Census accurately counts Queens’ resident population. The decennial Census determines the borough’s representation in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as how much federal funding Queens receives for schools, infrastructure, health services and more.
The Census Bureau is hiring for a variety of temporary jobs, including census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff and supervisory staff. The jobs in New York City pay a minimum of $25 per hour. Eligibility requirements can be found at https://2020census.gov/jobs, where applicants can apply online.
