What hiring managers are looking for is evidence that applicants' skills will help meet the company's goals.
Myanmar's army said on Monday that security forces have discovered a mass grave on the edge of a village in Rakhine State, and have launched an investigation. A violent crackdown by the security forces in response to attacks by militants in the state has caused around 650,000 Rohingya Muslims to flee to Bangladesh in recent months. In a statement posted on the Facebook page of the military's commander-in-chief, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, the army said the unidentified bodies had been found at the cemetery in the village of Inn Din, about 50 km (30 miles) north of state capital Sittwe.
The deputy leader of far-right party Britain First, who was retweeted by Donald Trump, has been suspended from Twitter. Party leader Paul Golding also had his account suspended, it emerged on Monday, and The Independent understands they were taken down by Twitter because they contravene the company’s new policy prohibiting “groups that affiliate with organisations that use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes”. Twitter began enforcing stricter anti-abuse rules on Monday following heavy criticism for failing to tackle online abuse and extremism.
By Feisal Omar MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali security forces have arrested a former minister and outspoken government critic after clashing with his bodyguards during an overnight raid on his home, the security ministry said on Monday.

By Elizabeth Dilts NEW YORK (Reuters) - Financial advisers and accountants are working overtime as many U.S. taxpayers scramble to pay the rest of their 2017 taxes before Jan. 1 when the proposed Republican tax overhaul would sharply cut the amount they can deduct on federal tax bills. The tax legislation, which top U.S. Republicans said on Sunday they expected Congress to pass this week, caps the amount of state, local and property taxes individuals can deduct from their federal tax bills at $10,000. The average American who itemized his or her tax bill in 2015 claimed more than $27,000 in deductions.
For as long as anyone can remember, there has existed a 'special relationship' between the U.S. and the UK. But have we been blind to the blossoming transatlantic union that bypasses Downing Street and the White House? As footage is released of Prince Harry and Barack Obama engaging in some light banter while the former prepared to interview the latter for the Today programme in September, here's six times the duo have proven that long-haul is no barrier for enduring friendship... 1. A meeting of minds: the Oval Office, October 2015 The pair's first meeting in the Oval Office Credit: JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images Prince Harry and Barack Obama first met a little over two years ago, when the latter was still in power. Beforehand, Obama commented on the prospect of the meeting; "I've had an opportunity to spend a lot of time with so many of his family members, but this is the first time that we had a chance to talk directly." During a congenial hearth-side chat, sparks flew in the absence of an actual fire. It would be the start of a heart-warming relationship. 2. Meet the family: Kensington Palace, April 2016 Family affair.

During a trip to the UK, the Obamas dined at Kensington Palace, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in attendance. It was the first time that any of the young royals had entertained a head of state privately and arguably the most significant event they have hosted at Kensington Palace. 3. Just dropping in: Kensington Palace, May 2017 Close friends.

Just a month after the dinner date, Barry dropped in on his old pal Harry to hang out and discuss numerous developments in their respective countries. According to the official palace Twitter account, the topics covered included: "support for veterans, mental health, conservation, empowering young people and the work of their respective foundations." Obama also offered “condolences to the victims of the Manchester attack and support for those recovering from injuries.” Good to see my friend Prince Harry in London to discuss the work of our foundations & offer condolences to victims of the Manchester attack. https://t.co/7azv4BV2Nt— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 27, 2017 4. 'I've got a couple of tickets to the game this evening...' Invictus Games, Toronto, September 2017 A young fan takes a selfie with the friends at the Invictus Games Credit: Samir Hussein/WireImage Images of Harry and Barry taking in events at the former's Invictus Games bounced around the world a couple of months ago. None, however, could rival the pic captured by Hayley Stover, an 18-year-old carpentry student, who got a selfie with the two bezzies while watching USA vs France in the wheelchair basketball Stover said afterwards: "I did hear Obama ask about Meghan and Harry just let him know she had been to watch the tennis with him. Harry was really smiling when he said it. He looked really happy, it was cute." Ahhhhhhh. 5. Part of the team: Invictus Games, September 2017 Team talk. Prince Harry and Obama with members of Team USA Credit: Chris Jackson/Getty Images During the same Games, Harry and Barry posed in relaxed fashion with the members of the U.S. team at the Invictus Games in Toronto. A spokesman for Mr Obama said the former president wished to lend his support to American competitors “to once again express his gratitude for their service and his admiration for their courage and resilience.” It was also during this meet-up that the pair recorded their Today interview, to be broadcast on December 27. 6. I'll be there for you: the Obama Foundation Summit, October 2017 The next month, the two buddies appeared in more formal circumstances, as Harry returned Barry's favour by supporting one of the former US president's work commitments – the Obama Foundation Summit, which aims to inspire a new generation of leaders. Harry took to the stage at the summit in Chicago, discussing philanthropy, youth engagement, and the importance of giving back to society having been born into privilege.
