Fantastic Opportunity

Partnership Specialist (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at US Census Bureau as a contractor for more than a year

ProsGreat flexibility and independence to reach out to communities and partner to get a good count. Working with elected officials and community groups could be challenging but in the end it is worth it. I wish this was a permanent job as it would make the decennial census a lot more easier or at least you had a lot more ground covered, more groups involved.

ConsIt's the government so lots of paperwork.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the Partnership program as an ongoing initiative, will produce better results.
