2020 Census Jobs 10-08-2019
Tribal Council authorized my office to begin outreach to Tribal members about the 2020 Census. I spoke with a recruiter this morning about available positions in our area that we could share with Tribal members. There isn’t a Census office in our area but they are currently hiring Census Takers. They pointed me to a website: www.2020census.gov/jobs as the place to find out and apply for Census jobs. There is also a phone number 1-855-562-2020 option 3 if a person preferred to call. Would it be possible to include this as courtesy information by the YN HR office mailer and on the website? Thanks!
