ok, i've been looking around and i mostly see a demand for civil engineers or techs of some kind (damn u techies!! well not really, just now cuz im upset). Whats up with that??? where are the planners? why arent we in demand? where can some one that actually wants to do PLANNING and not engineering go (private or public/ non-profit, for-profit... anything!!)? where do we students go to get experience if most of the market is asking for engineers and people with technical degrees or in pursuit of one? voluteering cant be the answer to everything!!! where do we fit? what do we do? <<<ridiculous question i know, but still, indulge me please!!
i guess im feeling frustrated because
1) im not in a technical degree seeking program everyone else seems to be in. (so lonely )
2) i want to work with communities not numbers and computers etc...
3) i am in a undergratuate architecture/planning program and will seek a master in planning. what im getting out of my massive researching isthat i shouldve stuck with sociology as undergrad (wouldve graduated on time too!! ) and then my masters in planning
i feel hopeless!! GOSH DARN IT!!!
