Hi all...I'm new here and i have a burning question that I need to ask all of you. Me and my boyfriend have been thinking of moving to New York City (from Toronto) for a couple of years to try out a new life...Toronto is not exactly boring but we're both young...so why not move somewhere else? The problem is...I have 0 planning experience and i am still in the midst of completing my graduate degree (Master of Environmental Studies) focusing on the planning of public space...I'm not sure if making the move is exactly right for me...and let's face it...York University is not exactly Ivy League either....so getting a job straight out of a graduate degree might pose some difficulties if i were to compete with other planning students in the states
So my question is:
1. Will it be hard for me to find a planning job in New York City with just a graduate degree and hardly any planning experience?
2. What is it like to live in New York City?
