With only a few months left on the job, President Barack Obama looked to hone his resume with a little help from Stephen Colbert.

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert ran sketch with the president on Monday night during which Colbert played an office manager named Randy.

Randy was looking to hire Obama once the president leaves office in January.

Before that happened, however, Colbert crept into the room as himself.

"How did you get in here?" Obama started the sketch by asking.

"I always look to talk with the leader of the free world," Colbert replied.

Colbert then left and returned as Randy.

"Hello, Mr. Obamer. Am I pronouncing that right?" he asked the commander-in-chief.

"Close enough," Obama said.

Colbert asked him about a lack of promotions over the last eight years.

The president responded by saying there was not a lot of room for advancement at his current job.

"When I hear you can't stay at your job because it's unconstitutional, all employers hear is 'I stole office supplies,'" Colbert said.

Colbert asked Obama if he had any awards or commendations.

The president said he had more than 30 honorary degrees and a Nobel Peace Prize.

"Oh, what was that for?" Colbert asked.

"To be honest, I still don't know," Obama replied.

As far as admitting any weaknesses, Obama told Colbert, very slowly, that he pauses too much when he speaks.

Colbert ended the interview by putting on a rubber glove and telling the president that he had to submit to a mandatory company physical.

"We're done here," Obama said.
