Need extra cash?

Just in case this hasn't been mentioned, I want to tell people a way to earn some extra money working part-time.   You can be retired, in school or between jobs.  Even if you work full time, it's possible to work in the evenings and on weekends. 

The U.S. Census Bureau is now accepting applications for 2009-2010 and will provide paid training.  The hourly rate depends on the area.  I'm not sure where they need people, but you can call the toll free number 1-866-861-2010.

I do advise taking the online practice test.  It's not very difficult, but I got 3 wrong out of the 28 questions because I answered too quickly or didn't read the question carefully.   Most of the questions are testing your ability to pay attention to detail & think logically.    Ex:  What doesn't belong in this series?   

(a) ABC

(b) EFG

(c)  IJK

(d) DUH

The answer is (d)   Hat

 

Good luck! 

 

Has anyone here ever been a census taker?  Comments & suggestions are welcome!

I thought A, B and C did not belong in that series!
Looks like census taker is out of the question for me.
