Last November, Tinder, the popular dating app, added job and education integration — one of the most requested features from Tinder profiles. The Los Angeles-based company just released the top 15 most “right-swiped” jobs in the United States. “Right-swiping” is the “like” direction and for men, pilot was the top job, while physical therapist clocked in as the #1 ranked job for women. Recently named the favorite dating app by 73% of college students surveyed by WayUp, college students are on the list of most right-swiped jobs for men (#10) and women (#6).
