Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

A Register reader has posed as a hottie in order to reveal the positions available on a job-advertisement board for beauties only.

Our man told us he employed his professional photo-editing skills to take model-quality snaps (although we're sure he's being modest) and then join beautifulpeople.com, a dating site for sexy folk. The site recently opened up job listings that are exclusively available to the more industrious of its lovely-looking members.

Despite endless pieces of research claiming that hot people have better jobs, more money and improved life chances over the rest of us gronks, el Reg's mole said the positions were "Gumtree level, at best". He asked us not to name him, in case his girlfriend found out and began wondering why he'd joined a dating site for the sexy.

One advert was posted by a DJ at an outpost of Heart FM in Milton Keynes, who was looking for a "breakfast intern". Applicants were asked to contact Natalie B, who hosts an early morning radio show.

The listing said:

"Brilliant ideas creator, for a breakfast radio show targeting women aged 25-44, should be able to edit audio and produce and package content. Also on top of the latest youtube and twitter trends, with a good understanding of social network sites tweeting engaging ideas through the show and coming up with facebook posts during the show, which will be entertaining ideas for the breakfast radio show.

"Must be able to help us be bright and breezy in the morning, have a good sense of humour and could be a bit of eye candy. For a guy - either a Justin Timberlake or Ryan Gosling look a like, for a girl favourites include JLo or Salma Hayak."

The advert did not say why it was important for a radio presenter to be good looking. We phoned and emailed Natalie B to ask her why a DJ had to be physically attractive, but she didn't respond.

Another advert was posted by a woman in North London wanted to hear from anyone wanting to be an au-pair, as long as they were willing to send a picture with the application. We asked whether she thought that having a sexy au-pair might be a distraction for her husband, but she didn't reply either.

A company in Kuala Lumpur looking for a sales manager was after a very specific skill set. "The important part is good looking & most beautiful," the advert said.

There was also various sales jobs, which nonetheless offered whacking great salaries to beautiful people who could also flog stuff.

An advert offering a "magic carpet" of a job selling spinal implants said:

"MUST BE a true hunter who can navigate in and be successful with a territory which has an enormous amount of business and competition."

Have you applied for any jobs on this site and been knocked back for being ugly? The Reg wants to hear from you. ®
