Unemployed Sutton girl Nikki Friend (not pictured) strips in Zoo to get a job

Fed-up with being unemployed, one savvy girl has taken matters into her own hands.

Nikki Friend from Sutton has stripped down to her underwear for a magazine in order to help enhance her chances of getting a job.

Job-hunter Nikki appears in this week’s Zoo magazine feature “Gimme A Job!”.

The 21-year-old blonde has nine GCSEs and four A-levels as well as a degree from the “university of life”.

She said: “I’ve been a dancer, fitness instructor, actress and manager of an agency.

“My most recent position was as a sales rep.”

Her ideal job, she said, would be “a topless motivational speaker”.

Zoo editor Ben Todd added: “We’ve decided to showcase the impressive talents of jobless females to potential new employers.

“We’ve made it completely non-discriminative: by removing their clothes, we’ve removed the preconceptions.

“We’ve all got to do our bit to help beat the recession.”

How is this sexist or insulting when she's chosen to strip for the magazine voluntarily?

Is she being sexist towards herself?

Well if this is an attempt at being taken seriously, she's failed. A topless motivational speaker ? Wow, how intelligent and what exactly is a degree from the 'University of Life', where is that, in Shallowsville ? Get a grip.

Apparently she's been a dancer, fitness instructor, actress and a sales rep, so no - I don't think she expects to be CEO of Merrill Lynch.

I would assume - perhaps wrongly - that her 4 A' levels probably include drama and sports science. Looking at the title of her 'ideal job', I would say the job she's really after is actually 'glamour model'.

Fair enough - she's got the looks for it.

Not sure about the looks for it, but I expect the 'glamour' industry is all she's going to get, when she advertises herself in that way.
