Apply in Norwood next week for 2010 U.S. Census jobs

We’re interrupting our Christmas hiatus to make an important announcement about the availability of full and part time jobs with U.S. Census Bureau for the 2010 Census. Following is an email we just received that has all the particulars:

My friend, Laura Hobbs, is a resident of Norwood, and she told me about your site. I'm hoping you can help me publicize job opportunities with the U.S. Census. Applicants will need to complete an application and take a 30-minute test, which is being offered at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 30, at ITT Technical in Norwood. I would appreciate it if you could publish the following notice, as I would love to have Norwood residents take advantage of testing in their own neighborhood. Thank you for your consideration.

Census Bureau to hire hundreds for 2010 count
Know anyone who needs some extra cash? Wants flexible hours, working from their homes? The U.S. Census Bureau is now hiring for full-time and part-time temporary positions essential to the planning, organization and conducting of the 2010 Census. As you likely are aware, the Official Census Count (done every 10 years) determines your community's representation in Congress, state legislatures and local government. Equally important, it helps in the distribution of about $300 billion each year in federal funding for public programs in education, health care, transportation, housing and community development.

All Census positions require passage of a general skills test, which is being offered in the Norwood community at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 30, at ITT Technical Institute at 4750 Wesley Avenue. Tests also are offered at various other sites throughout Hamilton, Warren, Butler and Clermont counties. To schedule your test at a time and location convenient to you, please call the regional office of the Census at 513-766-3040. To download a practice test or get more information, visit
