Washington: US President Barack Obama is due to leave the White House on January 20, at the age of 55.

Talking about his impending retirement, Obama, at a SelectUSA foreign investment summit in Washington, joked, "In seven months or so, I`ll be on the job market. And I`m glad I`m going to be here, because I`m going to get on LinkedIn and see what comes up."

It`s not the first time Obama joked about using the professional networking site LinkedIn, which Microsoft has purchased for $26.2 billion.

In February, he posted about youth programs on the social platform used to exchange career advice, contacts and job offers.

He used the occasion to discuss his first work experience as a teenager: Baskin-Robbins ice cream vendor in Honolulu.

"My first summer job wasn`t exactly glamorous, but it taught me some valuable lessons: Responsibility. Hard work. Balancing a job with friends, family and school," Obama wrote at the time, as per AFP.
