Nude Operators

Good telemarketing help is always hard to find, but a tight labor market in the Netherlands has made it even more challenging. That’s why a Dutch call center ran a help-wanted ad asking, “Always wanted to work in the nude?” The ad, placed in the Dutch daily De Telegraaf, goes on to say, “In an office job like a call center worker, it doesn’t matter what you wear because the client does not see you. It’s a small step from there to working naked.” The Rotterdam-based business, the name of which was not disclosed for fear of offending existing clients, received about 75 responses in four hours. Moreover, the quality of the candidates was “very good,” according to a company director. No word on what the candidates looked like in the buff, however.
