President Obama gets a New Job offer

If President Barack Obama is still wondering what to do when he leaves office next week, he has a ready job offer — from Spotify.

The Worlds leading streaming service Spotify on Monday, advertised an opening for “President of Playlists”, and said it was looking for someone with “at least eight years experience running a highly regarded nation”, reported CNBC on Tuesday.

The streaming service said that the role requires someone with a Nobel Peace Prize, which Obama won in 2009. It further said that “knowing famous artists is a plus”.

The company said the President of Playlists would come up with songs to suit occasions from “shooting hoops with your friends” to warming up for an address on “health care legislation that bears your name.”

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek gave the President a heads-up on Twitter, writing: “I heard you were interested in a role at Spotify. Have you seen this one?” before linking to the affectionate ad.

While the posting does not name Mr Obama, it nods to his best-known buzzwords, saying Spotify is “full of hope, and always open to change”.
