President Obama is known to count celebs such as Jay-Z and wife Beyonce among his inner Mourning and Obama.jpgcircle, but that’s not where it ends. Among Obama’s newest friends is former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning.

White House insiders have previously claimed that Obama is one of the most insular presidents in American history, but he’s become fast friends with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning.

Mourning, who has donated to the Democratic Party and previously played basketball with Obama, is now a close friend to the president.

Even though Obama had adopted rapper Drake’s mantra of “no new friends”, he and Mourning are now pals. The two men have played golf together three times since November and met up in the Florida Keys. The two men discuss everything from sports to social issues when they’re together, according to Mourning.

“You get caught up in the fact that he’s so personable you do forget that he is the most powerful man in the world,” Mourning said in an interview, according to POLITICO. “That’s what he wants when he’s around his friends. He doesn’t want to be strictly political every time that he’s around us. I think he just wants to relax and exhale.”

Mourning, 44, says he’s not looking for the hook-up but genuinely enjoys the president as a friend. “I like to think I’m a pretty decent guy,” he explained.

Pres. Obama told Mourning he admires  “what I stood for off the playing field just as much as what I’ve done on the court.”

  2. Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular post! It is the little changes which will make the greatest changes. Thanks a lot for sharing!

  3. Today, organizations need to be told the specific position title you want to apply for – but a general resume fails to include this. On top of that, they instantly want to determine what positively distinguishes you – while a general resume forces you to appear just like the flood of general resumes they have already had dumped on them.

  4. I was very pleased to discover this web site. I need to to thank you for your time for this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every bit of it and i also have you bookmarked to see new information on your web site.

  7. Employing the duties/responsibilities resume format, will ensure that your resume is dropped on top of the garbage pile! Companies couldn’t care less about what you were supposed to do at previous organizations. In today’s hiring market, they have to be shown what unique added value you have made.

  8. I used to be able to find good info from your articles.

  9. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you need to write more about this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t speak about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

  10. The overwhelming majority of employers perceive the duties and responsibilities resume approach, as boring and of no value. Instead, organizations have to discover what distinguishes you from other rivals, with actual instances of contributions you have made for prior jobs.

  11. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written much better! Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I will send this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  12. You must ensure that a professional cover letter attracts your prospective employer, verifies your suitability for the job, plus entices them to pay attention to the resume so they will select you for the interview. Due to the immense flood of resumes sent to every job offer currently, an expertly-written cover letter typically becomes the top deciding factor as to if you get an interview – or get tossed into the garbage!

  13. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch because I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this subject here on your web page.

  14. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be useful to read through content from other authors and practice a little something from their sites.

  15. Almost all organizations see the Duties-and-Responsibilities resume technique, as boring and of no value. Instead, employers must find out what sets you apart from other competitors, including work-based examples of contributions you have made for former companies.

  16. This is a topic that is close to my heart… Take care! Exactly where are your contact details though?

  17. I and also my friends have already been checking out the nice helpful hints found on your web page and then suddenly got an awful suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web site owner for those secrets. The ladies came as a result thrilled to learn all of them and have undoubtedly been using those things. Appreciation for truly being well kind as well as for going for certain high-quality issues most people are really eager to discover. My personal sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

  18. Current companies will not pay attention to all of the 400 or greater resumes they get – for a single employment offering! Instead, they will gladly throw out ninety-five percent of them, if the resume does nothing to win their interest.

  19. This is the right web site for anybody who wishes to understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want toÖHaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been written about for decades. Excellent stuff, just excellent!

  24. Long time ago, job seekers were taught that each resume must have a list of bullet-point duties and responsibilities required by each employment we’ve ever done – and the bigger the list the better. No longer! Today, employers plan to only devote ten seconds (maybe even less) when skimming through your resume. Don’t use the duties and responsibilities resume format!

  25. I wish you would continue your publishing in this subject niche and I would like to read more posted by you in the coming weeks.

  26. Most companies perceive the duties and responsibilities resume template, as boring and valueless. Instead, companies need to find out what differentiates you from other resumes, including tangible instances of contributions you made at prior engagements.

  27. Really engaging theme and layout, plus outstanding content. Applause! 😀

  28. There’s a bunch of info in this article which I wouldn’t have realized by myself. My gratitude for this helpful info.
