President Obama on Monday joked that he is not worried about finding work after he leaves the White House in January. 
 
“In seven months or so, I’ll be on the job market,” he said at an economic summit in Washington. “And I’m glad I’m going to be here. I’m going to get on LinkedIn and see what comes up.”
 
Obama is apparently a fan of the online resume-sharing site. In Februrary, he reminisced about his first job as an ice-cream scooper in a LinkedIn post announcing a job program for young people. 
 
{mosads}Obama touted the U.S. job market at the SelectUSA Investment Summit, an event staged by the administration designed to attract foreign investment to the U.S. 
 
He said that the country’s myriad trade agreements with foreign countries, energy development and culture of innovation all make it attractive to foreign companies. 
 
“Nowhere in the world in history has there been a better place to grow your business,” the president told the audience of investors. “I don’t mind being America’s pitchman.”
 
Obama announced the creation of a new manufacturing “hub” in Los Angeles that will focus on developing sensors to make factories more efficient. The center is receiving $140 million in federal and private grants.
 
It’s the ninth such hub the administration has created, part of its effort to spur the creation of manufacturing jobs in the U.S.
