Girl Surprises Michelle Obama with Unemployed Dad’s Resume

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- When it comes to the job hunt, they say, it’s all about who you know.

And one little girl, a guest at the White House’s annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” seized the opportunity to get her father’s resume into some powerful hands on Thursday.

When Michelle Obama called on her during a question-and-answer session in the East Room, instead of asking a question, the girl gave the first lady a copy of her dad’s resume.

“My dad’s been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his resume,” she said.

“Oh my goodness,” murmured Mrs. Obama as she wrapped the little girl in a hug.

“Well, it’s a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad, right?” the first lady said to the audience, which were children of Executive Office employees.

“Got it,” she said to the girl, brandishing the resume.

Mrs. Obama took the folded resume with her when she left the event.
