Here is my situation, I'll be defending my Thesis in September (probably around the 20th) and trying to find some sort of job/internship afterwards. What I was wondering is if any of you had to work as an intern for a while after completing Grad School before a permanent job would be offered to you. I've applied and interviewed for a couple of positions and it seems that the reason I can't get my foot in the door is because of having no experience (Masters in Planning, Bachelors in Geography/GIS).
I'd also like to know if anyone on here was able to secure a job strictly over the phone. I plan on meeting face to face as many times possible (I live in WY), but travel expenses are a factor if someone in New York, Florida, or anyone long distance wants to meet me in person.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated, Thanks!
