State Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Flushing) and the Chinatown Manpower Project are continuing their partnership to offer career and business development services to Flushing residents.

Established in 1972, Chinatown Manpower Project recently kicked off MOBILE Jobs, a new initiative in Flushing, that aims to diversity the types of resources and services offered to area residents.

Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Kim’s office will be hosting a CMP representative and providing a meeting space for community members and residents at his district office, located at 136-20 38th Ave.

“Instead of just taking punitive approaches against small business owners that result in hundreds of displaced workers, I am working with CMP to help these vulnerable workers and beyond,” Kim said.

Individuals will receive job counseling, small business counseling or general assistance geared toward helping them become financially self-sufficient.

Individuals interested in participating can make an appointment by reaching out to Chinatown Manpower Project Program Coordinator Jaey Ahn at (212) 227-1740 or (212) 571-1690, ext. 230.

CMP will also be hosting its 2016 Annual Flushing Job Fair, which will be held March 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the community room on the third floor of the UnitedHealthcare Asian Plaza, located at 136-02 Roosevelt Ave.

For the event, the organization is working with UnitedHealthcare to help job seekers find new career opportunities and get access to networking and employment resources. The event is free and open to the public.

The fair will include 12 employers from Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan who will be seeking potential employees to fill open positions.

Reach reporter Madina Toure by e-mail at or by phone at (718) 260–4566.

Joseph from Queens says:
Well according to that tiresome mewling Bernie Sanders, youth unemployment is way too high so he has a plan to double the cost to hire them. Typical backwards thinking and reasoning.

Of course not! When has he ever helped any of us minorities out! Let's face it, if you're a white person living in queens anymore, you are now the minority!

Louis from Flushing says:
Looks like a job initiative to help all residents of Flushing, why do white supremacists think they're not eligible? Although, I have to say, if you're a white male who has lived with all the privileges of your supremacy and still can't manage to find a job... then you must be so incompetent that you're unemployable...
