Camden County hosting job fair for 2020 U.S. census

Camden County is hosting a week-long job fair to highlight as many as 3,000 part-time job opportunities for the 2020 U.S. census

Camden County is hosting a week-long job fair to highlight part-time job opportunities for the 2020 U.S. census. Jobs pay as much as $16.50 per hour and it is expected that as many as 3,000 jobs will be available within Camden County.

Each decade, the United States Census Bureau is required to count America’s population, which is then used to determine a myriad of things, including how many representatives each state receives in Congress, how district boundaries are drawn and more.

Residents can apply online for these job opportunities at https://2020census.gov/en/jobs.html. Additionally, residents can also apply in person through virtual interviews at the Camden County One Stop Resource Center, Cherry Hill Public Library, Pennsauken Public Library, Runnemede Public Library, one of eight libraries in the Camden County Library System and other locations across the county found here.

Virtual interviews are open until Saturday, Oct. 26.
