If you are looking to work with the Census Bureau you can stop by the office to find out and apply for jobs. The office is open Monday through Friday, according to EastTexasMatters.com. The Census needs to hire more than 1,000 East Texas residents to help with conducting the 2020 Census, including canvassing and education. The deadline for the official count is April 1, 2020. Residents can fill out census questionnaires online, at the bureau or with the workers who are sent into neighborhoods to canvass. Supposedly, responses are protected and confidential, meaning they shouldn't be reported to immigration services or other agencies (not sure if I believe this though). The office is located at 506 E. Front St., at the corner of Front Street and Beckham Avenue, in the shopping plaza.
