President Barack Obama, whose powers expire in January 2017, told about the plans to look for work with a popular business social network LinkedIn. The American leader spoke about his intentions at the annual investment summit SelectUSA, launched yesterday in Washington.
About the future job search Obama said with obvious irony. “Seven months or something like that I will be at the labor exchange. And I’m glad it happens. I’m going to use LinkedIn and see that now the most popular,” – said the head of the United States (from 7:10 to the recording of performances). While Obama said that he would not mind to be a merchant. The audience reacted to the words of the President to laughter and applause.
Summit SelectUSA is the U.S. administration to attract foreign investment, notes The Hill. According to Obama, numerous commercial transactions, energy development, and a culture of innovation, make the United States attractive to foreign companies. “In the history of anywhere in the world was a better place to grow your business,” Obama said to the audience of investors.
It is known that Obama uses the social network LinkedIn. In February, the President has placed a personal profile story about her first summer job – assistant ice cream vendor, reminiscent of Politico. “My first summer job was not very attractive, but gave me a few valuable lessons. Responsibility. Hard work. Balancing between work, friends, family, and school”, – wrote the President of the United States. The reason for publication was the creation of Summer Opportunity project, including with the participation of LinkedIn, designed to help young people find their first job.
Social network LinkedIn was founded in 2003 in California, reminds TASS. The platform provides the opportunity to establish business contacts. The audience of the resource is about 400 million professionals in various fields.
The United States presidential election will be held November 8, 2016. Obama can’t take part in them, because he was twice elected President. The current U.S. leader leaves office on 20 January 2017.
