Applicants are now being accepted for part-time positions with the 2020 Census


The United States Census Bureau is looking to fill hundreds of part-time, temporary positions in West Virginia. The 2020 Census is your chance to play a vital role in West Virginia’s communities while also earning money. Most 2020 Census positions will last several weeks and feature competitive wages, weekly paychecks, flexible hours, paid training and mileage reimbursement. Additionally, jobs offer flexible hours that fit in your schedule—offering daytime, evening and weekend hours.  

Positions with the 2020 Census are crucial for getting an accurate count of everyone living in the West Virginia and the United States.
