Is the Census a Good Career Move for You?

April 19, 2010

Monday Podcast:

The US government is still beating the drum to hire people for the census.  It’s an obvious choice to target UI benefit recipients.  But is taking a job with the census your best career decision?

Think about it?

Census pays approx. $17 an hour.  Or $35,000 a year. So you’re pay after taxes is $510 a week or $1,020 every two weeks.

What if your unemployment is around $400 a week? Your previous job paid tons of money and your unemployment is the highest you can receive.

Well if you leave the job with the census & can’t find a job, your unemployment will be based upon your last position; the census…

Then suddenly your payment drops to $275 a week.  What do you do?

This is all hypothetical but it’s something to think about.  So if you’re looking at a job with the census, remember, it is only temporary and you need still look for a job.

Now what do you think?

If offered, would you take a job with the census?

If you do want a job with the census, you have to answer this question from an employer, “Why Should I Hire You?”  – For this answer click here: Answer Why Should I Hire You?

Come on, 2010…

March 12, 2009

The government is adding roughly 1.4 million jobs to the economy. And no, it’s not through the stimulus bill. It’s all part of the 2010 census. In case you didn’t know, every ten years, the government counts every single person in the nation (it also gathers all kinds of statistics, like how many people don’t have health insurance and all that). They open offices all over (again, pumping money into the economy), so keep a look out at your local job fairs, want ads, and internet job search sites.
