PA CareerLink

Pennsylvania CareerLinkPA CareerLink is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry's initiative to transform the landscape of how job-seekers find family sustaining jobs and how employers find the skilled candidates that they need. Through this initiative, a user-friendly, premiere job-matching system has been created to help bridge the gap that currently exists between job-seekers and employers.

Using the PA CareerLink site, job-seekers have the ability to search and apply for job openings across the Commonwealth or narrow it down to their own town. You can create and upload a resume and make yourself available to thousands of employers. PA CareerLink will also recommend jobs for you based on your preferences. One exciting feature is an automatic capture of all of your job-search activities within PA CareerLink. You have the ability to record any outside job-search activities, too.

Census Takers

Census 20/20The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring census takers to work in their own communities. The 2020 Census counts every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories—once, only once, and in the right place. This census is conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency.

If hired, your work schedule will depend on your position. Generally, hours for field positions are flexible. Some field positions require you to work during the day. Other positions require evening and weekend work interviewing the public. Supervisory positions require employees to be available for certain day, evening, and/or weekend shifts.

In Lehigh & Northampton Counties, census takers earn $18.00 per hour and field employees will be reimbursed for authorized work expenses like mileage incurred while conducting census work.
