Me, a government job?

Yup. Still not doing anything that brings in a paycheck, so I'm applying for a census taker position. Yeah, I know... but it's a paycheck. At least it's a government job that actually does something not only authorized, but mandated, by the Constitution.

Apparently, they haven't gotten applications from many folks in this end of the state. I'm the only one signed up to take the employment test tomorrow, over in Worthington.

The test itself isn't all that difficult, but it's tricky. 28 questions in 30 minutes. I blasted through the sample test in 15:31 and aced it, but I did make sure to pay close attention to exact wordings and the like. It does seem reasonably calibrated to measure what's actually useful to a census taker.
