Currently, the Bureau is looking to hire individuals for the following positions:

  • Recruiting assistants. These individuals travel throughout geographic areas to visit with community-based organizations, attend promotional events, and conduct other recruiting activities.

  • Office operations supervisors. These individuals assist in the management of office functions and day-to-day activities in one or more functional areas, including payroll, personnel, recruiting, field operations and support.

  • Clerks. These individuals perform various administrative and clerical tasks to support various functional areas, including payroll, personnel, recruiting, field operations and support.

  • Census field supervisors. These individuals conduct fieldwork to support and conduct on-the-job training for census takers, and/or to follow-up in situations where census takers have confronted issues such as not gaining entry to restricted areas.

  • Census takers. Working in the field, census takers assume a variety of roles. First, census takers work to confirm local addresses prior to the Bureau mailing the census forms. Second, once the census is mailed, census takers head into the field to interview and collect data as part of follow-up response.

    • For Census 2020, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is requiring the U.S. Census Bureau to hire U.S. citizens as census enumerators, which marks a significant change from previous censuses. More information is available here.
