The Most Searched-For Jobs on Google for Texas and Arkansas Couldn’t Be More Opposite
Google has answered the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
It's a question we were asked our entire lives growing up. What do you want to be when you grow up? As a kid, we come up with wild ideas that seem completely unreasonable but totally attainable in our minds. Well, I'm willing to bet that those high aspirations don't die easily. However, the way we dream about them does.
In today's society we turn to Google.
We search for jobs we think we would like and research how to secure them for ourselves. Thanks to Google Trends, Zippia and Business Insider, we can see which jobs people search for the most according to the state they live in.
For Texas, that job is "referee." It makes perfect sense to me, since Texas is such a football-oriented state. We've all had our fair share of screaming at referees over a blown call that I'm willing to bet plenty of people have Googled how in the world someone got that job.
For Arkansas, it's "meteorologist." I'm at a loss for this one.
Some states get very interesting however. My favorite is New York who most searches "professional cuddler." Some make no sense at all, like Ohio who most searches "potato."
