I don't know if this has occurred to you yet, because it sure hadn't occurred to me, but it's 2009, which means it's nearly time for the turn of the decade. Crazy, huh?
Why do I bring this up?
The Census Bureau is one of the few employers out there that actually seems to be doing some hiring -- A LOT of hiring. My chosen industry is one of the ones that's doing some hard-core suffering in these times of economic uncertainty. I've been more than a little concerned as to whether I'll still be employed come time for my birthday in July.
This is my official back-up job now, I think. It's a little random, but hello? The once-a-decade Census count! That's like, so important. How else are we going to divvy up the House of Representative population? Or know that my hometown is the 18th largest city in the U.S.? (And 18 is my favorite number, so how about that?)
