CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the hit of America's recession and a staggering unemployment rate, a growing number of men are looking for jobs in non-traditional fields. Occupational analysis shows a record number of men taking on job opportunities that are traditionally held by women.
Coined "pink collar," these jobs are typically service-oriented positions occupied by at least 70 percent women. Over the past decade, the number of men entering these fields has doubled. One example from the analysis of these growing professions for men is the dental hygienist field, which has grown in male participation by nearly 200 percent.
