I have a question that has been bothering me for years. Planning agencies, mostly government ones I have seen advertise an entry level position. However they place the following criteria...
"Bachelor's degree in planning, ETC, or related field is required.
A minimum 2 years of experience in planning is preferred."
1. How is this an entry level job? Yet I see this on almost every entry level position that is advertised this way.
2. How do they weigh the "2 years," are internships considered?
3. Are they just trying to avoid "green" college graduates?
4. With 2 years of experience in planning, who takes these "entry" level jobs when the salaries are only like $41,000?
Thanks for your insight.
