How do you become president in the US?

People become President of the US by running in an election (which is held every four years) and winning. But before they get to be president, they usually have a career in politics, in which they start from a lesser position. They first might get elected to be mayor of a city, then a governor of a state, or a senator or a representative in congress. In modern times, it is highly unusual for someone to come out of nowhere and be elected president.
