I'm a Canadian moving to Chicago in the spring and I'm wondering if anyone has any career advice.
My education is pretty broad. I've got a BA in Economics, a BA in Planning, a MUP, and a Graduate Diploma in Computer Science. I graduated four years ago and have been self employed since then as a software developer working with advertising firms to develop digital media projects (web sites, videoconferencing systems, interactive kiosks, etc).
I'd like to move back towards the planning world but I'm not entirely sure what area would be best suited to my skills. Ideally I'd like to find a firm that could use a digital media specialist who has an understanding of planning issues. But to be honest I've been doing tech stuff since graduation and I have no idea if such a job exists.
So any thoughts or advice would be helpful, and especially anything related to working in the Chicago area. Also, I really have no idea what sort of salary range I should be looking for. Like really no idea at all. So if you can suggest any similar sort of jobs and what they would pay in Chicago I'd be very interested.
Thanks in advance for any comments.
