The U.S. Census Bureau announced it has thousands of part-time positions available for the 2020 Census, and it will hold a hiring event on Friday, Jan. 10, in hopes of filling those vacancies.
Organizers said the goal is to hire temporary census workers, office personnel and more.
In the spring, census takers will knock on doors to follow up with households that have not responded to the census questionnaire.
