United Way Hosts U.S. 2020 Census Job Information Session

On Dec. 18 United Way of Greater Lorain County hosted an information session for prospective candidates interested in applying for 2020’s Census jobs.

Community members that came learned about the different opportunities the U.S. Census Bureau offered and how to apply online.

Those who apply don't need a resume, experience, a degree or GED, or to be drug tested and can still benefit from extra income, keeping government benefits and paid training, which begins Jan. 9 in the county.

Interested residents may apply online at 2020census.gov/jobs

Applicants will begin hearing back from the Census Bureau starting Dec. 23 for interviews and background checks before being chosen for hire.
