PR stereotypes

20 Sep

I learnt on Friday that many colleagues outside our subject area have a stereotypical view of our PR students. It’s the same as Victoria Mather’s in the Saturday Telegraph (no link): the PR blonde. ‘Antonia is dead perky. This morning she is following up the e-mail that she followed up with a letter about an innovative concept at the Sloth Hotel…’

I’m welcoming our new students this morning – and hoping they might shatter this image.

    As a student in public relations, I do feel many people have an idea of this typical “pushy, loud sweet-talker” who “spins” a tall-tale when a company is amidst a crisis. This stereotype must die, because in reality a a public relation’s professional must always be honest and transparent to always, ALWAYS remain a credible source.
