Czech nuclear company CEZ has bikini contest for intern applicantsStaff Writer | June 28, 2017
Getting a summer internship can be very competitive. So CEZ, a nuclear power plant in the Czech Republic, came up with a surprising way to make a selection.
Job interview Miss Energy 2017
Ten graduates posed in bikinis, and of course hard hats, inside of a cooling tower. And then people on Facebook voted for their favorite candidate.
The winner would get a two week internship at the plant and the title of “Miss Energy 2017." In an interview, a human rights lawyer said it was completely unethical.
CEZ ended up offering all the finalists an internship and taking down the post. The company apologized for the application ploy. ■
