I just saw last night that the Census Bureau is gearing up the hiring process for workers here in West Virginia, and I am sure the process is also starting up in other states as well. There will be several waves of hiring, from office workers and support staff, to the actual census takers. Hiring for workers at the state and local level is done through regional offices, and you can find the list at the Census Bureau’s website here. There are a number of jobs for Geographers and Cartographers, and GIS people. They’re usually only for a year or two, but are great experience. So, if you are out there on the job market, or will be soon, you should definitely check out the Jobs At Census website!
