Readers say it is not good to sleep with a man to get a job

68% of PNP voters say it is wrong to sleep with an employer for a job. What do you think?

Confused woman

Many Nigerians believe that some employers, especially the male folks, take advantage of the unemployment situation in the country to ask for sexual favours from job seekers. A Pulse reader, Catherine Omonide, found herself in such an unsavoury situation and wrote in to seek for advice.

Her letter read in part:

"I went for an interview with a big advertising agency and I was one of successful candidates short listed for the position but my problem now is that the Human Resources Manager told me point blank that to get the job, I must have sex with him.

I am at my wit's end and do not know what to do. I have confided in a few friends and almost all of them say I should sleep with the man to get what I want.

He has given me an ultimatum which expires this weekend and I desperately need this job. What should I do?"

Based on that, this poser was put up on Pulse Nigeria Poll:

How Nigeria voted:

32% - Yes, I will use what I have to get what I want

68% - No, I cannot sell my pride for a job

How would you vote?
