The government is hiring, even if no one else is! Temporary, part-time jobs paying $18.25 per hour are coming to Uptown and all Chicago neighborhoods starting in the spring.
"The US Census Bureau is hiring for the 2010 Census. These temporary, part-time jobs offer good pay, flexible evening and weekend hours, and the chance to work near home. Call 1-866-861-2010 or visit www.2010censusjobs.gov."
Job applicants need valid IDs and must take a basic skills tests. These tests are given at Uptown Chicago Public Library, Bezzazian CPL, and Truman College, among other locations. We need thousands--yes, thousands--of citizen census takers to make the 2010 Census a success.
