U.S. Census Bureau Employment Information Sessions (at PAA Annual Meeting, 4/26-4/27/18)

Posted: 3/26/2018 (Local Events)

The U.S. Census Bureau is interested in meeting with qualified U.S. citizens with education and expertise in demography, sociology, economics, geography, and related social sciences.  Training in demographic analysis, survey research, geographic information systems, and/or quantitative data analysis of large datasets is preferred.  U.S. Census Bureau employees work on topics such as: population distribution; population estimates and projections; race and ethnicity; international technical assistance; housing; socio-economic characteristics; employment; disability; health insurance coverage; and migration.

Representatives will meet with those interested in careers at the U.S. Census Bureau during the Population Association of America (PAA) annual meeting in Denver, CO.  We will conduct half hour informational sessions on April 26 and April 27 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in Tower Court B.  Please email David Zaslow (David.C.Zaslow@census.gov) to sign up prior to the conference or visit the Census Bureau’s exhibition booth during the conference for any remaining time slots.  Please share this invitation with all interested individuals.

Applicants should apply for employment opportunities at www.usajobs.gov.  It is helpful to set up an account on the site, then to create a saved search on the word “Census”, to receive an email notification the day after a job opportunity appears.

Two job announcements on USAJobs.gov will coincide with the conference.  A job announcement will appear for Recent Graduates (who graduated in the last two years).  Those with whom we meet in Tower Court B will be able to apply with assistance from Census representatives.  Others will be able to apply on USAJobs.gov on the following Monday and Tuesday, April 30 and May 1.  There also will be a job announcement for career-conditional job opportunities that will appear on USAJobs.gov in late April.

The Department of Commerce and the U.S. Census Bureau are Equal Opportunity Employers and encourage applicants from all sources.
