President Obama vowed to take a look at a Fort Worth woman’s husband’s resume on Monday in an attempt to help him find a job.
Participating in the first-ever virtual interview on the social networking site Google+, Obama was asked by Jennifer Weddel why her husband, a semiconductor engineer, is unable to find a job. (The Fort Worth woman also inquired why the government continues to extend H1B visas when there are many Americans without jobs.)
In the beginning, Obama told Weddel that her husband “should be able to find something right away.” Unconvinced, Weddel kept pressing.
“Send me your husband’s resume,” Obama said, after the woman voiced her frustration. “I will follow up on this.”
“I’ll have to take you up on that,” Weddel responded with a smile.Best wishes to Mrs. Weddel and her husband.
