The Mandel Public Library will host a job fair for anyone interested in applying for census jobs
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (January 10, 2020) – As preparation for the upcoming 2020 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau and the Mandel Public Library will host a job fair for anyone interested in applying for census jobs. The fair will be held on the second floor of the library on Monday, January 13 from 10am-12pm. Census staff will discuss what positions are available and provide assistance with applications if needed.
Each decade, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts an official census to determine how many individuals are residing within the country and how to distribute the billions of dollars allocated to enhancing communities throughout the United States. As part of this campaign, the City of West Palm Beach encourages all residents to complete the 2020 beginning in March.
For every resident that successfully completes their survey, a community secures approximately $2,000 in federal funds per person each year. This means that for every person not counted, our area could lose up $20,000 in federal funds per person each decade. These funds are used to improve city infrastructure, expand medical assistance, support public housing initiatives, enhance roadways and public transportation programs, and many more vital aspects of everyday living.
The Mandel Public Library is located at: 411 Clematis Street West Palm Beach, FL 33401. For more information on the job fair, call (561) 868-7701 (TTY: 800-955-8771).
