Bloggaday 65 – A Psychologist’s Resume: Involved in One of the Largest Surveys Ever Administered

Bloggaday 65 – A Psychologist’s Resume: Involved in One of the Largest Surveys Ever Administered

Yesterdays Bloggaday was a little loopy and had to be posted the night before. That is because I had to get up at 5 to head out to Adelanto and go to a Census Bureau Enumerator… Orientation? I’m not entirely sure what you would call it. There were 200 of us and we filled out a packet of information, got fingerprinted, and took an oath. Oh, and got paid.
The Census Bureau pays a considerable amount of money. Over $16 an hour, and $.50 a mile. For me, it was an hour drive, 50 miles each way, and 7 hours at the orientation itself.
There was a considerable, and rather surprising, amount of older folks there. Most of the people there though, were from Yucaipa and Redlands, which I suppose explains all of the older people… bdapsh. Anyways, there were actually a couple of people from Crafton Hills also.
Well, it went well. I’m going to be an enumerator for Redlands, which will be a much nicer commute than driving out to Adelanto 4 or 5 times a week. My training starts next week, but I’m going to miss 4 classes and a research group meeting, which is kind of a beech tree. Two psychs and two music’s. The music classes won’t be too bad. I’ll probably miss a quiz or two, but I can get her lecture notes online, and her classes don’t tend to stray from those too much. For psych, I’ll just get notes from somebody in class, but it’s going to suck to miss the classes. It’s a shame missing the research group, but what do you do.
After training and everything, they’ll expect me to work at least 20 hours a week, so even though the job won’t last that long, it’ll still add up to a considerable amount of money.
