Retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, who stepped down from his post as CIA director after a sex scandal in November, has found a new job.

Petraeus, 60, will serve as chairman of the newly created KKR Global Institute, a division of the New York investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P., reports The Associated Press.

In his new position the former four-star general, who led NATO forces in Afghanistan, “will support its investment teams and portfolio companies when studying new investments, especially in new locations,” reports AP.

It looks like 2013 is shaping up to be a busy year for Petraeus as he re-enters the work world. Earlier this month, the University of Southern California announced that Petraeus would teach part-time and would also aid veterans attending the school. Petraeus was educated at West Point and holds a doctorate from Princeton University.
