Korean, Vietnamese, Pacific Islander, Indian community partnership specialists needed by Census Bureau

The Census count, which is taken every 10 years, has a tremendous impact on San Francisco.  Our City relies on an accurate count of its residents to receive millions of dollars of federal funding for programs such as Medicare and foster child care; to properly define political districts; and to meet the needs of our changing communities.  In order to have a successful Census, we need bright people working for the Census Bureau that understand our San Francisco communities.

The Census Bureau is hiring for Partnership Specialists in multiple ethnic communities and the deadlines for various positions are closing today and next week (http://www.census.gov/rosea/www/emply.html).  The local office is looking for candidates that know the Hispanic, Native American, Korean, Vietnamese, Pacific Islander, Asian Indian and Russian communities well.

The positions entail:

— Identifying and establishing contacts with local governments, community organizations and faith-based organizations to promote Census programs

— Conducting outreach to educate the community, recruit job applicants, improve Census coverage and increase public participation in the Census

The closing date for the following positions is Mon, Nov 3 (TODAY):
Partnership Specialist – Hispanic Community
Partnership Specialist – American Indian/Alaska Native Community

The closing date for the following positions is Mon, Nov 10:
Partnership Specialist – Korean & Vietnamese Community
Partnership Specialist – Asian Indian Community
Partnership Specialist – Pacific Islander Community

* If you know someone that would be a good candidate, but lives outside the geographic area listed in the position announcement, encourage him/her to still apply.  Depending on the pool of applicants, the Census Bureau may consider applicants in other residential areas.

Please help spread the word!
