Census Bureau is hiring!

You'll be hearing more and more about the upcoming 2020 Census as Lansing works to ensure we get a complete count.  The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring now. Encourage members of your community to be a part of the team — benefits include flexible hours, meeting people and working outside of the office environment.
Field Representatives perform a variety of vital functions, such as updating address lists and maps; conducting interviews with residents in assigned areas; explaining the purpose of the census interview; and answering residents' questions. Hours of work for field positions will vary - some require employees to work during the day to see addresses on buildings, while others require interviewing the public usually in the evening and on weekends.
