I was wondering what sort of design skills are most marketable for planners who want to work in the private sector. I'll be going to grad school next year and I really want to enter the private sector; it seems like many firms have some sort of city design/physical planning focus.
So what kinds of skills do they want, and how does one acquire them? Do you need an undergrad background in it, or can you just take a few grad classes? Or do you just need a decent sense of aesthetics? Or do they really just want people with architecture degrees?
