Gene Sperling will stay on an extra month or so as director of the National Economic Council, the White House said Wednesday.

Sperling, who has held the job for nearly three years, will participate "in the process around the State of the Union address that the president will deliver at the end of January, and to continue work on some of the issues that he's been focused on," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.

His projects include a pair of upcoming conferences, one on helping low-income students attend college and another on ways to address the long-term unemployed.

Sperling will also help with the transition to his successor Jeff Zients, who until this week has been supervising improvements to the troubled health care website.
