The jobs we choose say a lot about us, whether we are social butterflies, we are quick-witted or strong and reliable. But do they have the ability to make us seem more or less attractive to potential partners?
With that in mind, StandOut CV sought to find out which jobs are most and least attractive.
To do this, they created two Tinder profiles – one for a male and one for a female, both in their late 20s. Each account’s bio and profile picture were the same throughout the experiment, apart from one thing: their job title. The aim was to see whether the number of right swipes would change based solely on a person’s career.
To determine which jobs are most attractive, they combined the number of right swipes for each of the two Tinder accounts and gave them an “attractiveness score” based upon how many times they were “swiped right”.
Some of the findings include:
- Web designers are the most sought after on dating apps, getting the most “right swipes” of all jobs listed (82% right swipes).
- The second most attractive job is vet, with 79% of people swiped right for profiles featuring this job title.
- The research can reveal that being a politician is the least attractive career choice, with just 15% of people swiping right.
- Only 22% swiped right for the profiles featuring the online influencer job title.
- Psychologist reveals why we find some jobs titles more attractive than others!
Their research found that web designers are the most sought after on dating apps, getting the most “right swipes” of all jobs listed, giving them an attraction score of 82%. Not only is this career becoming increasingly popular in recent years, it also seems to be increasing in appeal to males and females when dating too!
The second most attractive job is being a vet! In our experiment, 79% of people swiped right for profiles featuring this job title. With veterinarians known to have a big heart and caring soul, it’s unsurprising that this role ranks so highly on the list.
In third place is architects and doctors – two occupations that are sure to get potential partners hearts racing with 77% of Tinder users swiping right for these roles.
Marketers and lawyers are come in fourth and fifth place respectively, with our experiment revealing each occupation has an attraction rate of more 70%.
Also among the most “attractive” jobs were journalists (65%), psychologists (61%), chefs (59%) and hairdressers (56%), to name a few.
