Gas pump attendant, mall security guard, pizza deliveryman, stand-up comedian – those are just some of the jobs at which Shimon Peres has tried his luck since leaving the presidential mansion.

In a light-hearted video made by the former president's' grand-daughter Mica Almog (a Haaretz writer) Peres is seen packing up before leaving office and then being informed at the employment bureau that he doesn't have any relevant experience.

The video was screened on Sunday night at a festive meeting of the Atlantic Council in New York.
