Why aren't legal service salesmen hot women?

Postby Desert Fox » Thu Mar 26, 2015 7:38 pm

Seems like a huge mistake. Every time one of them wants to take me to coffee to sell me some translations or whatever, its some gooberish white man. What the hell.

Why aren't legal service salesmen hot women? Because law firms aren't made up of HOT men? :twisted:

Exactly why the sales people should be hot women.

Westlaw and Lexis reps are almost entirely attractive women, as far as I've seen. Oh also bloomberg.

Ah, I am so excited to be part of this industry. It's like I never left the military. :|

Pretty sure this isn't unique to the legal industry or the military seeing as I have not been in either and it seems to make perfect sense. But ugly men buying products + hot women selling product = better chance of selling said product. I think that is just real life.

DF: What industry would NOT be improved, in your opinion, with the addition of hot women?

I’d say +80% of salespeople I see are women (including real estate agents). Is there any reason why any sales department head would think you’re a better fit for a guy rep then a female??
