I have been for years frustrated with the degree of detail, lack of career advancement and over all boredom of my civil engineering career. I have worked in highway and most recently transit for most of my career but until recently I had no idea where I was headed. I have for the past 2 years been working more directly with planners and hace decided that it was my true design to be a planner myself. I am going to apply for two grad programs here in the Bay area but was wondering what else I can do to find out more, learn more about and try my hand at planning. It was best put to me that, "engineers are a mile deep and an inch wide, planners are an inch deep and a mile wide." Im looking forward to a wider spectrum of challenges and understandings.
