BOISE — If you are looking for a good-paying job in Idaho, the U.S. Census Bureau wants you.
A month ago KTVB reported that the Census Bureau was targeting potential employees across the state to help with the 2020 Census.
The Census tells us they plan to open a temporary office in Boise by the summer of 2019, and that office will support at least 300 jobs in Idaho.
The hiring process, which includes a background check, can take at least a few weeks.
The goal of the Census is to count every man, woman and child living in the U.S. It's a massive job that takes years of planning.
The job openings for the 2020 Census in Idaho offer salaries that range from $13 per hour to $16 per hour, depending on the position.
You must be a U.S. citizen with a valid Social Security number and be at least 18 years old.
A spokesman says these positions are perfect for students, seniors, retired people and someone seeking a second job with flexible hours.
You can apply online at: 2020census.gov/jobs.
Applicants can also learn about available jobs at the Census Bureau's Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.
