Work schedule and Work type: Be sure to select what type of work schedule and type that best aligns with your preferences. The most common position is full-time and permanent, meaning the position is working forty hours a week and is long-term. Term or Temporary assignments may last a few months or even a few years. Although short-term, these positions can give you great experience and may open doors to other government positions. Additionally, though not all student jobs are required to be posted on USAJOBS.gov, student jobs through the Student Pathways Programs can be quickly found by using this filter. This filter also includes options for internships and positions for recent graduates.
While many people do hold a full-time occupation, "day job" specifically refers to those who hold the position solely to pay living expenses so they can pursue, through low paying entry work, the job they really want (which may also be during the day). The phrase strongly implies that the day job would be quit, if only the real vocation paid a living wage.
These positions provide the perfect opportunity to earn some extra income while helping your community. The results of the 2020 Census will help determine each state’s representation in Congress, as well as how certain funds are spent for schools, hospitals, roads, and more. This is your chance to play a part in history and help ensure that everyone in your community is counted!
