So, any tips out there on how to convince a hiring committee to give you a shot at your first Planning Director job? I imagine many PDs move up from within the ranks at particular jurisdiction (or company). Yet there must be some level of frequency for Senior and Principal Planner types to move to another jurisdiction and be given that first opportunity to lead the show.
Did it happen that way for you? Are you still trying to make it happen? What did you (or will you) say to convince someone to give you the chance?
