“The brand of The League is really for these ambitious driven, young professionals that want to date other ambitious, driven young professionals,” explained Amanda Bradford, founder of The League.
Instead, young professionals looking for a suitable mate are flocking to apps like The League and syncing their Linked In profile in the hopes that their resumes will help seal the deal and find them someone special.
“A lot of dating sites are trying to distance your professional life and your dating life as if they were two separate things.
But to understand someone fully, I think you need both aspects of them, because as much as we try to say we are not our job, a part of us is our job,” he told the Guardian.
The main thing is you have to bring something special to the table.
“Let’s say you didn’t go to college or you went to college that is not known for being a Tier 1 establishment, that’s OK.
But we are going to be expecting you to have accomplished something in your professional career to compensate for that. “We don’t plan to grow that number until we have the product,” said Bradford. Daniel Ratcliffe, 25, also did not have to wait too long before making it into The League.
Maybe you didn’t go to Oxford, but you started a non-profit to help underprivileged children in Africa and you’ve run that company from the ground-up. Krista White, 23, lives in Silicon Valley, California and works in public relations. She has been on the waitlist for The League since February. “When you first sign up for it, it puts you on a waitlist.
That’s the kind of ethos that we want our community to have.” The League has been described as Tinder for the elites.This way the app can ensure your profile is not visible to your professional connections, while at the same time giving potential matches a better idea of who you are as a person based on your education and professional experience.If you’re not a Goldman banker or a tech entrepreneur, don’t worry.I am not sure what their criteria is for accepting members.” Ratcliffe said he wondered if he would get in – after all, he did not attend an Ivy League college. He adds that he has never heard of people “catfishing” on Linked In, creating a fake online profile to trick people in romantic relationship.He did attend New York University for his master’s degree. “I think because you have to go on the waitlist, everyone is more serious about dating and about sending messages.” Nguyen, who said his response rate on other apps was about 20% to 30%, said: “On The League, I have got close to a 100% response rate with my matches.” The League also comes with a number of filters that allow members to select their ideal date’s education attainment level, height, age and ethnicity.
