Hello fellow Cyburbians,
I'm a recent grad of Florida State University with a MSP. As a first year student, I developed the reputation of being the 'modeler' on campus. The subject matter and software was exciting initially and I devoted a lot of extra-curricular time to learning the principles and theories of modeling. I had an internship with Cambridge Systematics for approximately 7 months in which I did nothing but code networks, run the model, and summarize data.
I landed a position with PBS&J in Tampa due to a reference from my supervisor at Cambridge ( I never took a modeling course). I've been here three months, bringing my time spent modeling at a little more than a year. However, I am burned out and regretful that my curriculum at FSU offered implementation and policy analsyis courses after I pretty much developed the rep and landed the job. I had to take the job, I have a family, but I'm stressed out over doing nothing but modeling after exposure to community planning. I've been contacted by 3 municipalities in the region who are interested in setting up an interview. Should I entertain their requests? given I'm still on my probationary period?
