Your Dream Job Working With Barack Obama Has Arrived
The ultimate humblebrag job just dropped on Instagram, and the position is open for 20 lucky people: Barack Obama is offering up a two-year fellowship at the Obama Foundation.
The former President of the United States has always used social media to his advantage, so he posted the job opening on Instagram on Thursday. From the caption alone, it sounds like an inspiring experience, and one that will give you bragging rights for the rest of your life — not to mention an impressive entry on your résumé.
“When I left office, I told you all that the single most important thing I could do would be to help prepare the next generation of leaders to take their own crack at changing the world,” Obama wrote in the caption. “The @ObamaFoundation Fellows program is looking to do just that — train and support civic innovators who are solving problems in their communities in creative and powerful ways.”
Applicants don’t have much time to apply, though. Everything needs to be submitted on The Obama Foundation website by 6 p.m. CT on Friday. Also, note that it does require a one-minute video submission, so get cracking on that application now.
The job sounds like it comes with a few perks, too. Fellows will “participate in four multi-day gatherings where they will collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Throughout the program, each Fellow will pursue a personalized plan to leverage Fellowship resources to take their work to the next level,” according to the Obama Foundation website.
Whether your aim is to work in politics or to develop leadership skills in other fields, this job has the potential to open a lot of doors. Let us know if you get the job, because you might make the #ThanksObama hashtag a real-life story for you.
