On a phone dating app like Tinder, your career ambitions get distilled down to the one or two-word bio you give on what you do for a living. Then, along with your picture and a brief bio, potential suitors are given a choice: swipe left in rejection or swipe right in the hopes of making a match?
The app relies on first impressions and according to a new Tinder list reported by Business Insider, there are some careers that are more immediately desirable than others when we are confronted between a “CEO of life” or someone flying through the skies.
Nurses took the top spot for women; interior designers for men
Analyzing the American user profiles that got the highest ratio of right swipes in 2018, Tinder compiled a list of the most swiped-right jobs. For U.S. women, suitors found medicine to be an attractive career.
Nurses and dentists took the top spots, suggesting that paramours are seeking someone with a stable future. The healthcare industry is expected to grow 18% from 2016 to 2026, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 2017, registered nurses were making an average of $70,000 a year while dentists were earning $158,120. Meanwhile, for men, suitors were attracted to men with a vision —for style or the skies. Interior designers and pilots scored the highest. Maybe we want someone to help us out on earning frequent flier miles? But while pilots remain consistently an attractive person to date, the idea of a self-made man working on an app is not as attractive anymore as it once was. Founders fell from second on the 2016 list to 15 on this year’s list.
Here’s the full list for American users:
1) Registered Nurse
4) College / Graduate Student
7) Flight Attendant
8) Founder / Entrepreneur
9) Personal Trainer
10) Waitress / Bartender
11) Physical Therapist
13) Makeup Artist
15) Marketing Manager
1) Interior Designer
3) Physician’s Assistant
5) PR / Communications
7) Visual Designer
9) College / Graduate Student
14) Firefighter / Paramedic
