The U.S. Census Bureau is looking to hire. The Pueblo office says it wants to hire more than 1,000 census takers in 2010.
The mostly part-time workers will collect information in Pueblo County and points south and east. "The majority of the positions that we need to fill are people who are going to be working evenings, weekends--we need to hire people that are available to work when people are home," said Emily King, Assistant Manager of Recruiting for the U.S. Census Bureau in Pueblo.
El Paso County is hiring it's own team of census workers. The starting pay is $11 an hour.
The jobs will begin next spring, but applications are being taken now. For more information call 1-866-861-2010 or visit the U.S. Census website.
