Pros: cristalized my awareness and sensibility about the suffering from others.
Cons: temporary work
The job description is very similar to other jobs based on-premise survey interviewing. The principal challenges were: attempting to gain access to the units, obtaining the trust of the people, explaining your affiliation and getting the information.
Each case was a new experience presenting situations that if not properly handled it could represent danger to you. Census work was intricate but very rewarding.
The job permitted me to experience and witness the poverty and the suffering of some residents of Marion County.
