Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton's resume keeps expanding.

The current vice chair of the Clinton Foundation and former occasional news reporter has joined the travel company Expedia's board, according to Yahoo News.

Expedia expanded its board from 13 to 14 members and elected Chelsea Clinton to fill the new position, according to a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

She will be compensated according to standard rules at the company for board members and is not on any specific committee, the filing said.

Expedia is based in the northwestern U.S. state of Washington and is one of the largest online services in the world for booking flights, hotels, and car rentals.

She is expected to make nearly $300,000 a year in the job through a mix of cash and stock options, according to ABC.

Joining Expedia's board is yet another high-profile move for the 37-year-old Clinton. Since her mother Hillary's failed presidential run, Clinton has received praise from the mainstream media for a "spicy, sarcastic online personality," which has largely consisted of her tweeting criticisms of President Trump and retweeting others' criticizing the president.

Clinton also served as a "special correspondent" for NBC News from November 2011 to August 2014, for which she was paid $600,000 a year. Her stories, which included interviewing the Geico gecko, were so infrequent that Business Insider calculated she earned $26,724 per minute she was on the air.

The Washington Post‘s Erik Wemple Blog blasted the Clinton hire by NBC News as "awful."

Clinton has previously served as an associate at consulting firm McKinsey & Company, and at investment firm Avenue Capital Group, according to a report from the Seattle Times, in addition to being assistant vice provost at New York University.
