Census workshop and recruiting events are headed to Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo this week.
The events will provide job information and workshop with the goal of recruiting temporary workers for the spring 2020 census.
The jobs are critical to ensure accurate and complete census results throughout the country.
About 500,000 census takers will need to be hired across the country in 2020. Applying early can give prospective employees a leg up in the hiring process, officials say.
The US Census Bureau says the temporary positions are a great opportunity for holiday seasonal workers, students, retirees and workers in the gig economy. Local employees who are hired would start next Spring.
