    Barack Obama may be one of the most powerful men in the world, but he's also a regular guy who likes his Blackberry.

    If you can Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Buzz with the best of them, then the president may have a job for you.

    The Obama Administration's current "Social Networks Manager," Mia Cambronero, is stepping down, leaving the White House without someone to update its status (statuses? stati?).

    Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America -- and hosted at BarackObama.com -- lists the qualifications.

    Among them:

    • Excellent writing and editing skills with strong attention to detail
    • Strong organizing and campaigning instincts
    • Ability to work under deadline pressure
    • A willingness to relocate to Washington, D.C.

    "This isn't a 9-5 sort of job," the posting reads.

    During the campaign for the presidency, the Obama camp extensively used email, text messaging and social networks to get out their message. 

    The ideal candidate will work closely with the rest of the New Media department to execute grassroots campaigns to advance the President’s agenda for change, the site says.
