Hi all, I don't know if this topic has already been covered or not, but here it goes. I'm entering my senior year of college and had an unpaid internship in a local planning office last semester which I loved. I'm a history major but I've taken classes like economics, GIS, geology, architecture and public policy I believe are pertinent to planning. I'm also writing a thesis in architectural history on a local commercial district next year.
My question is whether or not I will be able to get an internship or other paid job at a planning department after I graduate for a year or two before grad school. I don't think there's any way I can go to grad school straightaway since I'll be too burnt out. What are my prospects for getting a paid internship at a planning department or firm? Are there other jobs requiring less education related to planning that I could work before committing to grad school? I thought about maybe doing some surveying work, but I'm not sure how much education that requires, either. Thanks!
