Since all of you have been so supportive of my misadventures in job hunting and have provided great advice to me I want to thank you all and let you know I have a new job starting the end of March. I know I said I had given up on planning, but looking in other fields was not going so well, so I kept applying and interviewing in the field.
It is a planning policy job in a suburban city's Urban Design Section. This is a great opportunity for me and will hopefully make me happy. If it does not, it will definitely show me that planning is not for me. Best thing is no more processing rotten applications from rednecks and hillbillies, just have to deal with the "mafia".
Still plan on doing the GMAT.
Thanks, and first round at the next TO laefest is on me, or if I make it to a laefest, anywhere, the first round is on me. Time to go buy a a pair of new jeans and a few other things for my new job.
