Citibank said her “shapeliness” was too distracting...Shimmering Resumes has offered to help her find a new job.
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) June 5, 2010
Debrahlee Lorenzana, a successful and attractive New York City banker, is suddenly out of work and needs the help of a professional resume writer. Shimmering Resumes has offered to help get her career back on track during these difficult economic times.
Ms. Lorenzana, 33, a Business Banking Officer with Citibank since 2008, said the financial giant fired her because she is attractive, too attractive. Lorenzana typically wore turtlenecks and pencil skirts to work, appropriate professional attire, she said, adding that Citibank said her “shapeliness” was distracting male employees so she should not dress like other women. The bank has responded that Lorenzana was terminated due to poor on-the-job performance. All this according to the New York Post and CBS News, in a widely reported story.
“Maybe she should wear a burka,” her attorney told a local New York CBS TV news program.
Paul Freiberger, President of Shimmering Resumes, a California-based career counseling and resume writing service, says he can save Lorenzana the hassle of a lawsuit.
Lorenzana has filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against Citibank. “She could pay an attorney thousands or more," Freiberger said. "For a fraction of that, I’ll write her a banking resume, help her look for a job, and train her to interview. She should be drawing a salary in no time, making a difference at a company that appreciates her special talents.
“I see a career change in her future,” Freiberger said. Asked if he would hire Lorenzana, he said, “No comment.”
