With the nation’s biggest tennis tournament returning Aug. 29 through Sept. 11 at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Councilwoman Sandra Ung in conjunction with the USTA will host a hiring event on July 20 for residents in the district to fill seasonal positions available during the U.S. Open. 

“This is a major event that takes place in Flushing’s backyard every year, and local residents should take advantage of and benefit from the opportunities it provides,” Ung said. “I want to thank the USTA for meeting with constituents in my district and giving them a chance to fill some of the thousands of jobs created annually during the U.S. Open.”

On July 20 from 2 to 5 p.m., employment recruiters from the USTA will be at Bowne Playground at Union Street and Sanford Avenue conducting interviews. Available job opportunities include player and guest services, courts and grounds, administration and parking lot and access control. All positions offer competitive pay and meal allowances.

“I encourage anyone who is looking for a good-paying temporary job, regardless of your experience level, to apply,” Ung said. “This is also a great opportunity for someone looking to get started in a new career or a young person looking to build their resume.”
