A census job fair and information session will be the first public event for newly inaugurated Mayor Bill Keeler of Cohoes.
Alongside Assemblymember John T. McDonald III (also a former Cohoes mayor), they will host the fair and information session at the Cohoes Public Library (169 Mohawk St., Cohoes) on Saturday, Jan. 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
According to media release sent by McDonald’s office, census officials will be on hand to answer questions about job opportunities, help people apply for jobs, and provide general information about the 2020 Census. There also will be census learning activities for children.
“With the 2020 Census right around the corner, we need to make sure every New Yorker is counted. Census jobs offer flexible hours and competitive pay rates. These positions provide the opportunity to earn extra income while helping the community,” said Assemblymember McDonald.
“Census jobs offer a good opportunity for part-time work for residents, and filling these jobs is essential to ensure everyone in Cohoes is counted in the 2020 Census,” said Mayor Keeler.
To be eligible to apply for a Census job you must be 18 years or older, have a valid Social Security number, pass a criminal background check, and be a U.S. Citizen.
