Knock Knock

Back in I believe October or so I took the Federal Census test and did quite well getting 28 out of 29 questions correctly.

Well as many of you know, they hired me and I did census canvassing work a few months ago, and it was actually quite fun.

I enjoyed doing it because I basically got to drive around East Hawaii and be nosey… well and it really is an important thing for our community to bring in Federal Money.  For the next 10 years what I’m doing now will directly correlate to how much money our community gets from the Feds.

A few weeks ago, I took the Supervisor test, and a few days later I got a call back from Oahu telling me that I had scored VERY WELL and they would be contacting me in March possibly for a Crew Leader/Supervisor position.

Well I just got a call today, asking me to be nosey again in a few weeks.  When I asked about the test I took recently, they said this had nothing to do with the supervisor positions in March and this was for a position now.

I’ll be starting a new phase of census training on Sept. 21st – 25th and then I will be going out in the field again. From what I have been told so far, I will actually be interviewing people at their doorsteps this time.

“Knock Knock?”

“Who’s There?”

“Census Bureau?”

“Census Bureau Who?”

“Check… your there… good bye”

Wish it would be that easy… but from some of the experiences I had before doing the census work… I’m sure this stage of the 2010 Census is going to be a bit more difficult including asking for personal data from people.
