Hector Maldonado, 29, Kingston, Wash.
Job: Partnership coordinator
Location: Kingston, Wash.

I used to work with Kauffman & Associates, an American Indian-owned consulting company that provides services to government agencies. I was working on outreach efforts with the Census Bureau toward more than 500 American-Indian tribes and villages for the 2010 census.

When that project ended in early 2008, there was a census job opening for a partnership coordinator, which works with local businesses and organizations in hard-to-count areas to motivate people to fill out their census forms. I applied because I felt like it was an extension of what I was already doing. And it was a win-win because I'd get to do important work for my community and get paid.
