Czech nuclear plant uses bikini contest to hire interns

A lot of elements go into a good application for an internship: A strong CV, stellar recommendations, relevant experience... and the ability to look good in a two-piece?

A Czech nuclear power plant has been forced to apologize after holding a bikini contest to choose its new female intern. In fact he said that the company frequently hires "winners of competitions either organized by CEZ or by the third parties".

Apologising two days later on Facebook, CEZ said: "'The objective of the competition was to promote technical education", the post read.

And bosses announced that all the competitors would be granted internships at the plant. "We haven't announced any victor and we apologised".

Fans were asked to vote for the hottest to secure the internship job and she was also crowned as "Miss Energy 2017".

"We think photographs are very tasteful", it wrote in a comment on the post. "Undress and you get an internship - this cannot be serious, it's degrading, disgusting and primitive", one Facebook user commented on the post, according to Deutsche Welle.

Unlike the first game where Long launched a comeback, here Srikanth was in no mood to relent, opening a five-point lead at 19-15. Brutal, brilliant - Srikanth's aggressive game was right on point that gave the World No. 4 no chance to settle into the match.

"You find the number of likes under half-naked picture of a young lady as adequate and/or tasteful criterion for a career opportunity that is promoted as 'professional?'" one Facebook user commented.

Reacting to the criticism, CEZ apologised via Facebook.

"We did not want anyone to feel upset. However, if the original vision raised doubts or concerns, we are very sorry about it".

"The goal of the competition was to promote technical education", it said.

Oh, and it seems like every gal was a victor because the plant offered all ten ladies an internship.
