2020 Census Jobs

The U.S. Census Bureau is currently recruiting thousands of people nationwide for a variety of temporary jobs, including census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff, and supervisory staff. In DeSoto County, the Census Bureau is planning to hire 266 temporary workers. To be eligible for a 2020 Census job, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Have a valid Social Security number.
  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Have a valid email address.
  • Complete an application and answer assessment questions.
  • Be registered with the Selective Service System or have a qualifying exemption, if you are a male born after Dec. 31, 1959.
  • Pass a Census-performed criminal background check and a review of criminal records, including fingerprinting.
  • Commit to completing training.
  • Be available to work flexible hours, which can include days, evenings, and/or weekends.

If you’d like to apply for one of these temporary jobs, visit This link will direct applicants to create an account. Applicants then wait for a confirmation email (which could go to spam) after which they can complete and submit an application for open positions in the area – without knowing what those open positions are and without selecting a specific position. Applicants will be asked to complete an assessment and provide other information to be considered. If they do not complete all parts, their application will not be processed correctly.
