At Last! Career Options for College Cheer-tators

From the NYT comes this story about the perfect career for those perky college cheerbabes.

We will hire anyone with military experience over someone who does not have it. They have much better self-discipline and can work very well with others. They are also more tolerant of others' behavior and are detail oriented.

To make it onto a college cheerleading squad requires many of the same traits plus a willingness to travel and meet people in stressful situations. I have dated some cheerleaders and found them pretty tough and focused and very level headed. I agree that they would make excellent sales reps.

Once again the NYT shows its utter helplessness in analyzing the real world. It had to work in some paragraphs on lookism and sexual harassment and a slight tone of disgust while taking a whack at Drug Firms.

On the one hand we have the uptight Christian Ladies and on the other we have the Uptight PC Bitches.

It interesting how the Puritanism of the Northeast seems into everything like black mold. Can't make money, can't make whoopee, can't ogle the Cheerleaders.

Maybe both groups should spend two hours a day working out with the cheerleaders and then they could relax, too.

As for me, I'm impressed with the former cheerleader who was so concerned about being thought cute-but-dumb that she *actually went out and learned about the product she was selling!* Actually, I'm even more impressed with the drug company that would send her to doctors without that knowledge in the first place.

I love it. While I don’t normally brag about my years of service, this is the first time I saw them reduced to that of a cheerbimbo.

(But don't worry, in most families it is dishonorable to give birth to a cheerleader.)

I wonder how many of the ex-cheerleaders are not so much reps as what I have referred to as "booth bunnies." A "booth bunny" is a good looking women who works trade shows and professional meetings and it meant to create "traffic" in the booth for the real reps.

whatever it takes to separate the customer from their money. Its too bad drugs can't truly be sold on their merit. I guess that's what it takes to sell something in an industry that also kills people along the way.

If you could humor me for a sec I'd like to talk about credit repair and bad credit repair mortgage loan fix repair credit FICO bankruptcy foreclosure equity equifax experian TU dispute not to mention low interest rates on a mortgage and saving someone from foreclosure or bankruptcy.
