Barack Obama is my boss. How would you like to be able to technically say that? If you're serious about wanting a job under the Obama administration, now is the time to apply. Typically, about 7,000 new jobs open up at the beginning of a new president's term, and on Wednesday the government will announce which positions will be available and where they will be located.
The jobs last as long as Obama is in office and are referred to as politically appointed or noncareer positions (political experience is not a prerequisite). The positions cover a variety of fields offered at a wide range of salaries and experience levels. Fill out a general application online now to receive instructions later about how to apply for the positions that interest you most. A comprehensive list of all jobs will be available after they've been announced at gpoaccess.gov.
