Census officials are gearing up hiring efforts before the 2020 survey, and recruiting efforts will take place across Westmoreland and Allegheny counties this week.

Interested applicants can ask questions about available positions — which include census takers, recruiting assistants, and office and supervisory staff — and receive help submitting applications. Almost 3,000 positions are available in the area, with about 500,000 census takers needed nationally.

Sessions are from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Norwin Public Library in North Huntingdon; from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday at the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library; and from 3 to 4 p.m. Thursday at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Hill District branch.

Pay varies based on county. Workers in Westmoreland County will receive $16 per hour and those in Allegheny County will make $18.50 per hour.

Applicants must be at least 18. A resume is not required to apply.

The events are three of 35 scheduled across Southwestern Pennsylvania throughout the week. Other locations include Rochester, Monaca, Midland and New Brighton in Beaver County, Bessemer in Lawrence County and others. A full list can be found at 2020census.gov, where online applications are being accepted.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
