2010 US Cenus jobs

About a month ago my pastor made an announcement that the government will be hiring workers on a part time basis with the 2010 census. I thought this would be a good way to make some extra money.

Last night was my testing appointment. It is truly entertaining to watch others in a testing environment. The tester explained the instructions to us as if we were in elementary school. As insulting as it sounds, it was actually necessary. Few people did have trouble with completing the application. As the 30 minute skills test begun, I began to think about the show "Are you smarter than a 5th grader"? The questions on the test are not SAT/ACT caliber but it does require you to use basic reading, math and analysis skills.

As I left the testing center, I thought about the possibility of being hired with the government as a census taker and how the job would be if I had to go door to door checking the status of homes. For $16.25/hour paid weekly, I will do it.

My favorite search & win site is Swag Bucks. I am truly addicted to this site. I have recruited others into the site. You use the site to perform internet searches, you randomly win bucks which you redeem for free prizes. All of this is FREE.

To let you know this site is the real deal, I have received from Amazon: Super Mario Bros for Wii, Wii Sports Resort and Lost Season 5.
