A young girl who was a guest at the White House's annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" did her father a favor.

She handed Michelle Obama his résumé.

When Obama called on a girl, identified by the Associated Press as 10-year-old Charlotte Bell, during a question-and-answer session, the girl stood up and walked toward the first lady.

"My dad's been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his résumé," Charlotte said.

Obama seemed surprised, then invited the girl on stage and gave her a hug. "Oh my goodness," Obama said while hugging Charlotte.

The two briefly spoke and Obama held up the résumé.

"Well it's a little private, but she's doing something for her dad. Alright?" Obama said. She held up the résumé in her hand and shook it. "Got it."
