A close friend of Jay Carney, former White House Press Secretary has revealed Apple is in talks with Carney for the position of PR. Last week there was Re/Code report that hinted Jay Carney being considered to fill the position Katie Cotton vacated recently. Later, The Loop confirmed that the rumour was fake as “Tim Cook has never even met Jay Carney.”
When contacted by Bloomberg, Jay Carney did not confirm the name of the company/companies he is in discussion with for his next job, but said he is weighing various opportunities coming his way.
“I’m talking to a lot of different people about a variety of potential opportunities,” he said yesterday in an e-mail.
Re/Code reported in June that Apple CEO Tim Cook was personally looking for “high-profile external candidates” to replace Katie Cotton.
Before joining the White House, Jay Carney worked for Time Magazine as Miami Bureau Chief and Director of Communications for Vice President Joe Biden.
