I am 61 year old woman with MS. I have been disabled since 1995 and had not worked until summer of 2020, but due to the coronavirus my husband had to take his Social Security retirement early, because he couldn't find work. As a result I needed to find some more financial assistance. I applied for the Census Bureau and was hired for a temporary position as an enumerator. After working I realized that maybe I could continue with employment elsewhere. With both my husband and I on a fixed income we couldn't get our bills paid. Since the pandemic began, it has been very difficult financially for us, until I took the temporary position which gave us some relief.
I have an extensive background and work experience with several types of employment; such as retail operations and management, pharmacy technician, mail order positions at AARP pharmacy, computer operator and hardware technician, experience with newer software from my IPhone and home computer. Driving to and locating hard to find addresses, and computer input while interviewing respondents working for the Census Bureau.
It is important for me to find a job that uses my past experience so I can perform the work without extensive training. That way I can save the employer time and money for training me. I am a quick learner and a good problem solver .
As an enumerator I would check my Government issued smart phone each morning for a case list.Then I would drive to the locations of each address on the list, go to the respondents door and ask several questions. The answers to the questions I ask would be entered into the smart phone at the time of the interview. If no one was home I would leave a note with information from the Census Bureau on how to contact them to apply on their own. Most of these respondents on my case list were in rural areas, and required a lot of driving. I was good at getting completed interviews, and received several bonuses for it. I was very thorough and found the addresses of difficult places that other enumerators couldn't find. As a result of this the field supervisor, my bosses boss, requested that I take on the difficult cases.
As a pharmacy technician I was in charge of training other technicians. Because this was a mail order pharmacy, there were many pharmacy techs. I was the first person chosen to be trained as a technician, and there were many other positions I was taught, so I could train others in those positions also. These included retail pharmacy cashier, invoice printing, posting machine, retail otc packaging for shipping, collating flyers to insert into packages, invoice entry, insurance filing, and any other small job that needed to be done.
As a pharmacy technician I would read the prescription and pull the medication. Then check the quantity needed and count that number and place in the bottle, for the pharmacist to recheck and label it.

Not all medication is in pill form and we also distributed syringes and insulin for diabetics without a prescription.
