Lincoln County is just four applications away from being at 100 percent when it comes to filling positions for the upcoming 2020 Census, said Jerry Whitehead, Sr., a recruiting assistant responsible for Lincoln, Moore, Giles and Grundy counties, Thursday.

Whitehead, along with Lincoln County Mayor Bill Newman, met with the Lincoln County Community Census Committee at the Courthouse Thursday, saying that as April 1 nears, the county is so close to having the number of applicants it needs to fill the census jobs available – April 1 is Census Day, meaning that by that date, every home will have received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.

“There’s still time for persons to apply for a temporary part-time position with the 2020 Census,” said Whitehead. “We want Lincoln County to reach 100 percent, Plus, it’s a great opportunity for folks to apply to earn extra income and help their community.”

Jobs for the 2020 Census offer competitive wages that are paid weekly. Authorized expenses, such as mileage, are reimbursed for employees doing field work. The positions feature flexible hours. Candidates need only to complete an online job application, which includes assessment questions about your education, work, and other experience.
