    Let’s face it, the coolest new CEOs are in tech. Obama was the very first digital president. We’d love to see him jump in the tech game. After all, he’d be great at sourcing investors.

  3. Festival Producer

    With all the great events and concerts held at White House throughout his presidency, maybe he and Michelle could team up to create some awesome international festival events.

  4. Creative Director of a Denim Line

    Obama has become quite popular for his infamous “dad jeans” while in office. Now is the time for him to flip that persona on its head and take on a new creative director position for a hot denim line.

  5. NBA Commissioner

    We all know Obama loves basketball. With his management skills and ability to relate to the players, becoming the commissioner of the NBA seems like a perfect position for him.

  6. Chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee

    Obama’s moral compass is set pretty high. This would be an awesome position for him!

  7. Late Night Talk Show Host

    Millennials like our news mixed with a bit of comedy and celeb influence. Obama has the personality and contacts to host a far-reaching late night talk show that could reach people in a unique way.
