Field Representatives

The US Census Bureau is seeking Field Representatives.

The client works independently and will be provided training and issued a laptop.

Some work can be accomplished at home and on the phone, but most is completed in the field. Clients are provided assignments and can set their own schedule by day, night, and weekends. (There is a great deal of independence in this role.)

Clients are not canvassing an area and making random interviews, like a traditional census representative.  The client is interviewing preselected addresses and households and will be trained on how to gather information. Field representatives will be asking questions as they appear on their laptop and recording and submitting responses.
