    How can a career even be hot :lol:
    Signalling. Sociologists spend a lot of time studying symbols of social status, capital and culture, prestige, etc. What somebody does for a living, assuming they don't just do it for money (which says something about that person), ought to say something about that person and their values.

    I think these only become sexy when 'technology entrepreneur' which is really another way of saying 'business owner' and has nothing to do with the technology itself. Convince me that coding is sexy

    Sexy careers seem to have high stakes.

    With finance, it's the risk involved in the investment of millions or billions of dollars and, in some's views, the 'dirty' money alluded to above.
    In medicine, it's somebody's life in their hands.
    A lawyer theoretically would also have somebody's life in their hands, risking prison if not advocating well for a client.

    Probably we have Doctor ---> Lawyer ---> IB here. Even though most doctors and lawyers are not dealing in high stakes environments, there is a seriousness to what Drs do always, in that it 'actually' matters, and some lawyers have this too.

    The moral nature of each job then seems to be another axis that others will vary on how highly they score. This is more readily related to social status.
    Doctor ---> Lawyer ---> IB, in general, on that axis.

    Then there is a power/wealth axis.
    IB ---> Lawyer ---> Doctor In the UK, Drs do not earn much at all really.

    So probably if we're going for mass appeal then Dr ---> Lawyer ---> Banker
    But some girls will be attracted to and give one axis more weight than another

    That'd make a career attractive rather than hot, since hot = sexually appealing.

    People are sexually attracted to that which signals those things, ie. power and status.
