Residents living in Calhoun and Etowah counties who are looking to make extra income this season still have an opportunity to work with the United States Census Bureau. The Census Bureau started collecting information for the 2020 census in January.
However, as the deadline for the census gets closer and closer, more workers are needed to ensure everyone one in the area is accounted for. Census Recruiter Robert Avery says nearly half a million people will be hired all over the country for the 2020 census. Avery says even more census workers are needed in Etowah County.
Avery also says that flexible hours, a generous salary of $14 to $17 an hour, and mileage comes with the job. If you would like more information or to apply to become a Census taker, visit 2020census.gov/jobs.
