Re: Using sexuality for professional advancement

Flirters do get ahead, but I have never seen one get a job they weren't at least basically qualified for even if they were often given preferential treatment at the expense of equally qualified colleagues. I think that people who flirt their way through the workplace have more confidence, and this translates into intangibles like internal promotions, increased job responsibilities and flexible working hours, vacation requests, etc. more so than "going from mail room to CFO."

Flirting is a "soft skill" which I think is just part of the workplace in a sexualized and gendered society. I find that quite sad, but you can't hate the player, you can only hate the game.
