I have a geography degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and am a certified middle grades science teacher. I am interested in environmental planning and pursuing a master's degree in planning. I live in southeast NC and cannot seem to secure a planning internship, part-time job or entry level full-time job. I just want some experience so that i don't go into the graduate program not really knowing what i'm doing. Does anyone have any suggestions for gaining employment or an internship while not enrolled in an academic program, specifically for this area?
