Thousands of temporary, part-time census workers are in the process of being mobilized across the nation for the 2020 census. And chances are that if you’re looking to be a US census worker, there are other part-time jobs that may peak your interest. We’ve highlighted some part-time jobs that US census workers can also explore during and after the census season.
Since it is a massive undertaking to make sure the data is correct and up to date, census workers willing to step up are a huge contribution to the local and greater community — something we truly appreciate at Swing Education. Also, many census workers must visit neighborhoods door-to-door to collect data — a job that requires great organization and communication skills, with a positive attitude. These are great qualities and transferable skills that one can apply to other jobs, including substitute teaching!
As a US census worker, if you have the flexibility to take on other part-time work during the day or if you’re looking for other part-time jobs for when temporary census work is over, here are some recommendations that match your skills:
Since you love helping out the community (and contributed to making sure local schools receive proper funding through data collection), working as a substitute teacher is a natural fit. As a substitute teacher, you’re making a true impact to your local community, ensuring that schools can have a qualified teacher in the classroom at all times.
