Looking to make a few extra bucks? Are you able to do part-time work? Then you might be in luck. Apparently there are a lot of part-time U.S. Census jobs available right now. According to Trent from The Simple Dollar blog:
With the dawning of 2010 comes the once-per-decade United States Census – and with it comes the need for hundreds of thousands of part-time workers to help with local census results.Trent provides a whole bunch of useful links regarding U.S. Census jobs, including a link to a map provided by the U.S. Census that shows pay rates for jobs throughout the U.S. In a quick search we did, we found jobs for $11 (South Dakota) to as high as just under $20 (Massachusetts). We only checked a handful of states, so be sure to check the map to see the U.S. Census job hourly rate for your local area.
Trent explains what a Census worker does, as well as how you can get started ("the first step is to contact your local census office").
