Town Hall to be hub for census hirings

BLYTHEWOOD – The Blythewood Town Hall has been named one of several hubs to host hiring events for almost 6,000 people from across Richland, Lexington and Kershaw Counties. The first phase of hiring, according to the Census Bureau, started on June 10, and training will begin in late July.

These 6,000 positions will be for Address Canvassers, who will have total flexibility in their hours of field work (part-time or full-time), and will be responsible for confirming the addresses of all dwellings well ahead of the 2020 schedule of enumeration (census takers) next year.

The Census Bureau will continue to need applicants for the current phase for several positions and into the peak census gathering operations through May of 2020. The Census Bureau has been booking their career coach for select Town Halls across the Midlands. The Town of Blythewood is one of those, and will host its event on July 31, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

More information will be provided as it becomes available. Those interested can call Town Hall at 754-0501.
