Watch: Obama gets some job hunting advice from Stephen Colbert!
What happens when the ‘Leader of the Free World’ needs to start job hunting? Simple, he puts together a striking résumé and gets the best help he can.
US President Barack Obama did exactly that in the latest episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, giving another glimpse into his comic timing.
“Fifty-five is a tough time for a man to start over,” says Colbert, appearing as Randy the office manager. Indeed, getting back on the job hunting scene is no piece of cake.
The first strike was when Randy quips, “I don’t see any promotions for the last 8 years.” Serving diplomacy at its finest, Obama replies, “There wasn’t a lot of room for advancement in my last job. The only one with a more powerful position was my wife!”
As the discussion veers to his qualifications, Obama nonchalantly mentions his 30 honorary degrees and his Nobel Peace Prize. For what? “To be honest, I still don’t know,” he candidly admits.
