Czech nuclear company CEZ has bikini contest for intern applicants

Staff 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.
CEZ bikini contest
Job interview   Miss Energy 2017
The company had a swimsuit contest for applicants. They said it was to promote "technical education."

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.
