BAYONNE, NJ - Mayor Jimmy Davis wants every Bayonne resident counted when Census 2020 rolls around, and, he announced recently, he wants Bayonne residents to do the counting.
On Thursday, January 23, according to a statement, the U.S. Census Bureau will hold a job fair at the Bayonne Public Library from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m.
Thanking the Census Bureau for giving residents an opportunity to apply to be part of the once a decade effort Davis added that “hiring people with knowledge of local neighborhoods and streets will be very important for a successful population count.”
“I urge Bayonne residents to take advantage of this opportunity for employment that will be helpful to our nation and our community,” he said before reminding applicants all hiring decisions will be made by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Both office and field positions are available and come with flexible hours. Job-seekers can indicate a preference for working mornings, afternoons, evenings, or weekends, and will be able to apply on the spot on computers provided by the Bayonne Public Library.
