    President Barack Obama will host a town hall forum on jobs at LinkedIn next week.

    Pres. Barack Obama was schedule to fly to Moffett Field Sunday for a quick two day visit to the Bay Area. 

    The president will participate in a town hall forum at Mountain View's Computer History Museum Monday morning at 11 a.m.  The president is scheduled to talk to LinkedIn employees and users about jobs, the economy and job creation.

    LinkedIn has also launched a forum where people can look for jobs and submit questions to the president to answer during the forum.

    The trip begins with two pricey fundraisers on Sunday. The president will attend a $35,800 per couple dinner at the home of Facebook COO Cheryl Sandberg in Atherton in the evening.

    The president will also attend a reception in San Francisco hosted by former Symantec board chairman John W. Thompson in the late afternoon.

    Mr. Obama's Bay Area visit to raise campaign funds will be a short one. He will travel to Los Angeles for similar events later in the day Monday.
