Everyone has been clamoring to guess what outgoing President Barack Obama will do once he leaves office in 10 days. But it turns out that the 55-year old who created 9.3 million new jobs during his tenure does not need to worry about job security, because if he wishes to, he has already secured a job at Spotify where his designation will be the "President of Playlists."

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek tweeted to the President with a link to the job advertisement. “I heard you were interested in a role at Spotify,” Ek’s tweet reads. “Have you seen this one?”

Ek’s tweet that mentions Obama’s apparent interest was traced to an Instagram post sent out last week by the wife of Swedish ambassador Natalia Brzezinski who claimed that Obama said “I'm still waiting for my job at Spotify... ‘cause I know y’all loved my playlist.” Obama had previously shared two of his playlists, the first in 2015 after the White House became users of the world's leading streaming music streaming site Spotify.

The humorous job post asked for “at least eight years experience running a highly-regarded nation” and “experience in programming playlists at a federal level. Anything from an eclectic summer playlist to a celebratory ‘I just found my birth certificate’ playlist.”

In the field of job requirements, it says the ideal candidate would be needed to “identify and substantiate new playlist ideas, e.g. from a playlist for shooting hoops with your friends, to the perfect warm up playlist for addressing the nation about health care legislation that bears your name.”


POTUS has not yet responded to the job advertisement supposedly based out of New York but one wonders whether Spotify CEO Daniel Ek considered the mock interview with Stephen Colbert where the president said that he hopes his next job will be in “a nice corner office or at least an office that has corners in it.”
