    Boston urban planning jobs?

    Does anyone know of any urban planning/urban designer headhunters in Boston? Any good job posting websites for planning employment in Boston? I'm having a hard time finding openings.

    I'm a planner in Boston at a private firm. Look at the listings on the Mass APA website. I'm not sure what is out there now, but Boston is doing better than many parts of the country.

    I lived in Beantown for 10 years and left due to the lack of opportunities for planners. There is not much growth occuring, therefore not much to plan. Many of the jobs with the City of Boston are patronage hires and even when you do get that first job, the pay is terrible. Plus, you have to compete against all of the Harvard and MIT graduates.
