290,000 Apply For Obama Jobs

pres-elect-conf-first-1 If you want a job in the Obama Administration join the very long line! Approximately 290,000 people have submitted resumes for a job in the President-elect’s administration. Interest in Obama Administration jobs is way higher than in previous administrations.  There are only 8,000 non-career positions available according to the Plum Book – the official list of jobs in a president’s administration.

By comparison, President Bush received 44,000 requests for jobs in 2001 and President Clinton received 125,000 applications for jobs in 1993.

 “You cannot predict what results will come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.”

Mahatma Gandhi




  1. Of course people want to work in his administration. Makes sense to me.
