NMDWS partners with U.S. Census Bureau for statewide hiring tour
Positions available now for 2020 Census

(Albuquerque, NM) – The U.S. Census Bureau is actively seeking to obtain 23,000 New Mexico applicants to fill thousands of positions at a pay rate of $13.50 to $15 an hour. The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions and New Mexico Workforce Connection (NMWC) have partnered with Census to help staff those positions across the state. Events have been set up throughout the month of October in 18 select communities where individuals interested in applying will have access to a computer lab and assistance in filling out the online application from Census and NMWC staff.

Available positions include Office Operations Supervisors, Office Clerks, Enumerators, Recruiting Assistants, and Census Field Supervisors. To apply for a 2020 Census job, visit www.2020Census.gov/jobs

“Taking part in the 2020 Census is extremely important as it has a direct impact on the amount of federal funding our state will receive,” said NMDWS Secretary Bill McCamley. “We need individuals who are ready to get out into their communities and help create history, and as a bonus, will also earn a paycheck while doing it. Our New Mexico Workforce Connection staff and the free resources at our 24 offices located across the state, as well as our Mobile Workforce Unit, are available to assist interested individuals in their application.”

Veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces and were separated under honorable conditions may be eligible for veterans’ preference.
