So, what is The League? Founder and CEO Amanda Bradford explained it as "a community for high-achieving singles." But with that comes high selectivity.

The League seeks to creates the power couples of tomorrow. So, if you don't have a LinkedIn like Zach, you're fucked.

Using tips from Bradford, our squad sought to maximize their profiles and take a stab at joining The League.

The unofficial first step is ditching the photos it automatically takes from Facebook. Just no.

1. Take professional photos that show off different sides of your personality. On The League, professional headshots get over 90% more likes for men!

And even just having higher-quality photos will increase your chances of getting in by over 20%.


4. The more LinkedIn and Facebook connections you have, the better. Remember, it's an "elite" dating app.

Get ready for an endless barrage of annoying LinkedIn emails. Once they start, they never stop.
