Sorry bros. Working at a top tech firm doesn't impress women.

It's simple. Scarcity drives demand, and tech firms have too many employees. When you are one of thousands working at Google or Facebook in the Bay Area, people aren't impressed. In contrast, let's say you were a single guy in SF working for an elite finance firm such as KKR, Silver Lake Partners, Hellman & Friedman. You will be at the top of the pecking order, the envy of other men and the object of desire of women.

    Most women in SF will not have heard of any of those companies to even have a chance of being impressed by them...

      Average woman, no. Educated successful women? Hell yes.

      An average woman is exactly what most men need. Success is a very subjective metric. For some success is raising 4 kids and putting them through college. Being educated doesn't mean having a dozen mbas, phds and other sorts of shiny toilet paper.
      What you're hinting at is an elitist and snobbish media induced portrait of an "educated successful woman". Those people seek others like them, from the same circles. You're fooling yourself if you think the average engineer out of those thousands fantasize about your model of woman. They don't give a fuck so you can take your snobbish success and shove it up your ass.
      I know what you're gonna answer, don't bother. The grapes are sour, Intel is shit blah, blah, but you know I'm right.

      The irony here is that it’s the *not* educated and successful (in the sense OP means) that would be more likely to be impressed by a finance dude.

      The elitists who have the means to be independent from men are more likely to look for either someone who will help them manage their household (like similar men do) or a trophy dude (you can easily identify these on dating apps by the NO FAT CH... er, NO SHORT GUYS on their profile) because they can. They don’t care about your money. They have their own.

      If you're talking about casual flings and hook-ups, then this doesn't matter. But when it comes to serious dating, women are hypergamous. This means that very rarely will they seriously date a man who is less prestigious and successful than them.

    If you’re seeking to be impressed, try being impressed by personal integrity, honesty, sense of humor, intelligence, humility and other human qualities that have nothing to do with TC... because in the end, TC and/or position doesn’t matter at all.

    Women are always looking for a well rounded man. Job is just one factor out of many.

    Well it’s not impressive, relatively speaking, when the town is full of prestigious engineers.

      If you tell someone you work at amazon, unfortunately they will think you work in the warehouse.

    OP, this post tells more about your desires for men than about whatever men think about women. Maybe this will be a surprise for you, but most men pick a profession based on job affinity.

    Plus, you can be attractive in any job.
