I guess Labor Day isn’t such a great holiday when it’s just another day of looking for jobs. And who likes the end of summer? On past Labor Days we looked at jobs with the U.S. Department of Labor and Stetson, but today we’re going to talk about the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. They are “the principal fact-finding agency for the Federal Government in the broad field of labor economics and statistics.” That means that lately they’ve been the bearer of bad news, but they’re also essential to economic recovery. Without reliable statistics our policymakers can’t know what to do. Additionally, without the BLS, I wouldn’t have been able to write my Labor Economics research paper on the effect of deer hunting season on employment rates in the state of New York.

Change the Statistics

The BLS vision is pretty straightforward, and actually comes without jargon. It’s to “be premier among statistical agencies, producing impartial, timely, and accurate data relevant to the needs of our users and to the social and economic conditions of our Nation, its workers, and their families.” The BLS.gov is an amazing resource, and it’s something that you could lose yourself in for hours—if you’re the right kind of nerd (I certainly am). Their About page is very matter of fact about their hiring needs. They say that the “BLS needs economists, mathematical statisticians, and Information Technology Specialists. It also needs some administrative and financial specialists and many types of technicians and assistants. The number of vacancies is difficult to predict, but some positions are available at most times.” I’m not going to run through all of the opportunities at the BLS today (it’s Labor Day!), but you can find the process for browsing through their Jobs here. Maybe if you find the right position, you can move some of the statistics in the right direction.
