Jared Kushner Finishes Filling Out Starbucks Application

Facing an upcoming move from Washington, DC, to his previous home in New York City, Jared Kushner has recently put the finishing touches on his application to work for Starbucks, the Seattle-based multinational chain of coffeehouses.

Kushner got his current position through his father-in-law, golf course manager Donald Trump, who is currently serving as president of the United States.

But the job only runs through the beginning of next year, so he knew it was time to start looking for other opportunities, and going back to New York seemed right.

"We already have a home there," Kushner said of the Park Avenue residence he shares with his wife and children. "And there are a lot of places nearby to get a job."

Starbucks seemed like a good fit because of his scattered work history and weak skill-set. 

"I appreciate the experience I got in Washington," Kushner said, "but it's kinda hard to quantify what I was doing there on a resume. I did a lot of running around and getting coffee, so I have that going for me."

If he had his way, Kushner would get a position at the Madison Avenue location near his home, so he would be able to walk to work. 

"It's just so much easier that way," he said. "But I'm not going to be too picky."

Kushner is still waiting on a letter of recommendation from Mr. Trump, which he hopes will be enough to secure a spot in management. 

"It's taking a lot longer than I'd anticipated," Kushner lamented. "I'm going to send in the application tomorrow regardless. Honestly, I wouldn't mind working my way up. I have lot to learn."
