The Harlem Globetrotters will be looking a bit different in more ways than one when their world tour stops at Allstate Arena on Friday. For a squad known historically for boasting a roster full of African-American men like Wilt Chamberlain and Connie Hawkins, it's unusual that the newly minted rookie class includes Fatima "TNT" Maddox and Jacob "Hops" Tucker.

Matt Mosher, Founder and CEO of hiredMYway.com, said he saw a problem with traditional job hunting websites becoming a "black hole" for resumes.
