The Census is still looking for a large amount of applicants in Tompkins (and surrounding counties). We are looking for agencies that would be willing to

Share our jobs information with their clients
Display our jobs information at their offices
Invite us to any community table events your organization may have
Invite us to any type of community event, small or large (pancake breakfast, church dinners etc, we are open to anything)
Suggestions on organizations that would be willing to assist us (PTAs, Legions, Elks etc)
Willing to post on their facebook or website, or to send an email blast ( I can send you the items for that)

Calls are being made with job offers starting this month, and will continue through March. Below is a little summary of our jobs

$18-$20/hr AND $.58/mile
You can be considered if you do not drive and live in a area with public transportation
No education requirement, not even a HS diploma
Criminal convictions do not necessarily exclude you from employment, it is decided on a case by case basis
If you are a non citizen and are authorized to work in the U.S and are fluent in Chinese, you are encouraged to apply (Only Tompkins County)
Flexible schedule
Census income does NOT impact Snap, Heap, or Tanf benefits in NYS— due to the temporary nature of the job

Please feel free to share my contact information with any person or group that might be interested in helping us recruit applicants.

Also, if anyone’s organization is interested in having the Census come to them and put on a presentation about the Census, why we do it and why it’s important, we can also arrange that.

Thank you for the help!!

If you’re interested, here is a public link that shows where we stand as far as applicants in every county of the state. You will see we are only at 21% of needed applicants in Tompkins county.
