#5 Should Be That Some Men Currently in PR Are Morons

Arik Hanson offers four reasons there aren’t more men in public relations:

1. Men think there is more money in other professions – “Unlike many women (sorry, blanket statement), men are driven by money and power.”

2. PR is not a “manly” profession – “Guys see how PR is portrayed in the media. They watch movies that show women working in PR.”

3. Men don’t understand PR – “Accounting, law, engineering, and financial services are industries that, on the surface, are easier to understand. Therefore, more men seek them out.”

4. There’s a generational issue at play – “Sons grow up watching their fathers. Many fathers work in industries like finance, engineering, construction and the like.”
