ELBURN—The U.S. Census Bureau is looking for people to work in temporary jobs across Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. The jobs involve going door to door to interview residents. Job applicants are required to take a skills test and undergo a background check. Most jobs require U.S. citizenship, a driver’s license and use of a vehicle.

The Census Bureau is also looking for people who are bilingual. Testing is currently scheduled in Elburn at the Town & Country Library, 320 E. North St., on Monday, Dec. 21, at 3 and 6 p.m.; and on Tuesday, Dec. 22, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

If you wish to fill out an application in advance to bring with you to the testing site, go to 2010censusjobs.gov to print it out. Also, be sure to bring two forms of federal identification with you, including a photo ID. Testing will take two to three hours.
