Everything I Know About Personal Branding I Learned On Tinder

The 6 ways that the infamous dating app actually prepares you for your career

1. Image is everything.

2. Lead with your trump cards.

3. Unique and strange is better than plain and normal.

the more divided people were about someone’s attractiveness, the more messages that person received overall!

4. Age is just a number. (and so is height!)

5. Guys have lower standards.

Men apply for a job when they have 60% of the qualifications, but women only will when they have 100% of the qualifications.

6. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

I hope you enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek article. While a lot of it is oversimplified and overgeneralized, there are real elements of truth in each statement. (Also, most of my online dating experiences were with OkCupid, back in the day, but… relevancy!) So let me know if you have beef, or want to further discuss things here. I try to respond to comments and my email is kikischirr@gmail.com.

All the best to you in your professional and personal lives!

(Recommends always appreciated!)
