The president posted on LinkedIn, a social media site targeted toward professionals, about his first job as an ice-cream scooper at Baskin Robbins.

He also announced a new program to help young people gain experience through first jobs.

The Summer Opportunity Project will work to bring together community leaders, nonprofits and private businesses to increase summer opportunities for young people. 

The Obama administration plans to put in place new actions to support strong summer programs including a new summer opportunity Americorps program.
