How important is your job when determining whether someone swipes right or left on Tinder? Extremely, according to former Tinder CEO Sean Rad.
“I think the thing that has shocked me [in developing Tinder] is that when it comes to establishing an initial impression, there’s a very finite set of things we look at to decide whether we want to have a conversation with someone,” Rad told Business Insider in 2015. “How you look — and what that says about your personality — common connections, career, education. Ninety percent of it comes down to that.”
And on Tuesday, Tinder released a list of the most “swiped-right” jobs in the US, indicating which careers people look for in a match. The list was compiled based on the occupations of US-based user profiles that have received the highest ratio of right swipes in 2018.
Interior designers leapfrogged pilots (who were No. 1 on the 2016 list) to take the top spot for men. For women, registered nurses and dentists came in one and two.
For men, founder/entrepreneur fell from No. 2 on the 2016 list to No. 15 on this year’s. Police officer, military, and TV/radio personality dropped off the men’s list altogether. For women, we bid farewell to speech-language pathologist, social-media manager, and real-estate agent, which all dropped from the list.
Model made its first appearance on the men’s list but dropped off the women’s one.
