Watch Barack Obama Get Some Résumé Help from Stephen Colbert

What can he say—his interview skills are a little rusty.

Barack Obama's job is coming to an end, but Stephen Colbert is here to help him make his way back into the workforce—er, well, Randy, the Office Manager is. In a skit for The Late Show, the POTUS gets "help"/grilled in order to figure out what his new career would be.

"Fifty-five. Tough time to start over for a man," Colbert Randy notes, before going over Obama's résumé. Here's what we learn:

  • No promotions? "Honestly there wasn't a lot of room for advancement in my last job," Obama replied. "The only one with a more powerful position was my wife."
  • Though Obama would like to say he's leaving because "it's required by the 22nd amendment of the United States Constitution," Randy says what that really sounds like to potential hiring managers—"what employers hear is that you stole office supplies."
  • Obama has more than 30 honor degrees *and* earned the Nobel Peace Prize, though, to be fair, the reason behind the Nobel isn't quite clear. "To be honest, I still don't know."
