Dear Lord, this chick is smoking hot. She is as hot as the chick whom Charlie Sheen nearly banged a couple of days ago, but the loser forgot to keep $12 K cash ready in advance. twofish Posts: 4944 Joined: February 18th, 2005, 6:51 pm ### Shirking at work QuoteOriginally posted by: traderjoe1976If by some chance, you had actually stumbled across a bank with an abundance of hot women, I can just see the number of job appications to that bank surge like crazy. I mean, if you have to spend 12 hours a day at a workplace, would you rather be surrounded by quants or by those superhot girls at the ad agencies on Madison Avenue.Quants are overwhelming male (90+% male), but there are parts of the IB that are overwhelming female (HR and secretarial support) (90%+ female). Also there are rather large numbers of women in trade support, model validation, risk, and mergers and acquisitions, and a pretty steady stream of college interns. So the trading floor is probably 40% female. The other thing is that the art of sales is merely a form of seduction. So women in IB's tend to be very good at social skills, which means looking "professionally attractive."

QuoteOriginally posted by: KackToodlesQuotebtw, if she got a job at an IB, this means she probably has a degree from a highly selective university too. Well that's one thing she didn't have.She did however have prior trading experience in FX and commodities though.Probably this and mainly her looks swayed the trading boss' mind (who was one of those staid englishmen in his late 50's). In fact during the time while I was at Salomon there were super hot blond bombshells (and superlative black haired ones!) being hired who did not possess all star academics but nevertheless got pretty good jobs on the trade floor. It just goes to show that getting a job has a lot to do just purely on whether you boss likes (the look of) you. Twofish is quite right in this regard.

Just as I thought: special brainy skills are NOT necessary to succeed in trading because boss would risk losing his own job if he hired a bunch of people who could not do their jobs.

I thought all the hot women worked at the ad agencies on Madison Avenue or at the strip clubs.OK, u really wanna know - it was then called Salomon Bros (back in 1997 when I joined) in their London office.True story - one of the 'hotties' at that bank happened to be a cash equities trader and after two years on the job she quit and went to california where she acheived moderate success as a hard core porn actress there.(I don't wish to disclose her name).I don't know what happened after that as former colleagues of mine haven't heard about her since. But it begs the question of how she got the trading gig in the first place??No need for names, just show us her workOK - she indeed worked for the above (from what I've gathered there was some disclosure agreement between her and the bank when she left which is why the press descriptions of her don't mention her time at the then newly formed citigroup). Don't know if this is allowable but here goes (I don't wish my posts to become too sordid in nature! ): http://www.monicamayhem.com/did you shag her?
