For most men the first thing we look for in a woman is physical attraction. This is why we are willing to approach her in the first place. Women reject men (directly) by saying "no" and men reject women (indirectly) by not approaching them.
Secondly we want women who are personable, fun, or enjoyable to be around. Most men aren't looking to be "taken care of" and therefore do not date "resumes".
In fact if a man is rich or very successful the less important the woman's career matters. A "hot looking" cocktail waitress or restaurant hostess will get asked out on dates more often than a "plain Jane" looking attorney or doctor.
When you really think about it most couples did not meet while they are doing their jobs anyway. We usually meet people at social events, nightclubs, or out and about town. I've never heard anyone claim that "the key to winning a (man's heart) is a degree and a paystub". Looks and personality come first, anything beyond that is "icing on the cake". One man's opinion! :-)
