I think only one president had an official job after being president. (Correct me if wrong.) It was Ted Roosevelt, who was a US Senator after pres.

Only one pres was in the US House but was not Senator or Governor. Lincoln. Again, yell if wrong.

Only one pres was also in the Supreme Court. Taft. In fact he was Chief Justice.

William Taft was Chief Justice AFTER he was President.

John Q. Adams served 18 years in Congress AFTER he was President.

Andrew Johnson served in Congress AFTER he was President.

Theo Roosevelt to my knowledge, did NOT hold an office after he was President.

And Eleanor Roosevelt was the first U.S. Delegate (or Ambassador) to the newly-formed United Nations.

John Quincy Adams had a much more impressive record in the House than as a President. He collapsed in his seat on the House Floor and died, two days later, in the Speaker's chamber. In his House career, he was an inflationary and eloquent speaker who defended unpopular causes such as the right of citizens to petition the Congress, the abolition of slavery and womens' rights and he also saw to it that the bequest for the Smithsonian Restitution wasn't squandered by the Jackson Administration...among other things. He foresaw the Civil War, the emancipation of slaves in Confederate States and the difficulties that would follow, integrating them into American society. His rabid attacks on Slavery on the House floor started a split in the Whig party between Northern and Southern Whigs, with the former group eventually becoming the core of the Republican Party that elected Lincoln in 1860.

President John Tyler was elected to serve in the House of Representatives of the Confederacy, but died before he could take office.

President Grover Cleveland was elected President four years into his (first) post-Presidency - so his 'other' job was another stint at being President.

In that you have made no contribution to the thread other than the above bit of obviousness, "we" isn't the correct pronoun.
