Czech Republic nuclear power plant hosts bikini contest to pick high schoolinterns

The company posted 10 images of high school graduates dressed in swimsuits and posing in the Temlin nuclear power plants' cooling tower.

The post states that the woman with the most likes will be crowned "Miss Energy 2017" and win a two-week internship at the plant, which sounds like a totally non-sexist way to hire a new intern.

And that's pretty much what went down at CEZ Temelin nuclear plant in the Czech Republic where a bikini contest was held in order to find the plant's newest intern.

The page encouraged followers to vote for the candidate they like the best.

In a press release, CEZ compared the bikini contest to its other cultural programs, such as the time it hosted a local philharmonic orchestra at the plant in South Bohemia.

Choosing an intern can't ever be easy: picking from dozens of teenagers, all of whom will have similar qualifications and experience (or lack of them).

On the post, the company stated: "We think photographs are very tasteful". The combination of beauty and the industrial environment gives an interesting result, ' the company wrote on social media.

The Independent quoted a Twitter user as writing, "So that's how you qualify to work for an AKW". "I thought this was the 21st century", one user wrote.

"The victor of the Facebook competition is. all interested parties", it says, explaining that internships will now be offered to all the young women.

The plant - which is the largest in the Czech Republic - apologized after 2 days of competition and announced all 10 young women would get internships. "But if the original vision raised doubts or concerns, we are very sorry", the post further read.
