Fashion Jobs for Women Only

Darn, I found what I thought would be a perfect employment opportunity.  As I was reading through the list of responsibilities I ran into a little problem when reaching bullet point number four.  Everything else was perfect, but not sure how I would be able to work my way around this one.

Here is how the job responsibility read, "A critical requirement of this position is to measure female consumers to determine the proper fit for bras and various other undergarments and intimate apparel in the privacy of the women’s fitting room on a regular basis."

Sure, I would be very good at the job, but I don't think that I would be the ideal candidate that the employer or the customer had in mind.  

I have a funny feeling that this is a gender bias job opportunity.  Can men apply for this position?

This particular job opportunity was for a Sales Merchandiser position at Hanesbrands.  If you are qualified (and female), you can find the listing at the fashion job search website (which is a sister site of Apparel Search).

If you want to work in the clothing industry, but you are not sure what positions are most appropriate for your skills, you may want to browse the clothing industry job descriptions section here on our site.

Also, it is important to note that we are NOT sure if this employment opportunity mentioned above is for men & women.  We are only "assuming" that it is intended for women only.  For more specifics, you would really need to consult with their HR department, not base any judgement on this blog post.  In our opinion, this job for by for ladies only.
