Hi guys, Im an undergrad in urban planning and will most likely want to pursue it at the masters level. The thing is, I have 0 interest whatsoever in dealing with social issues through planning, or seniors issues or broad overreaching policy initiatives to combat community issues. I do not want to work in the governmental sector at all.
My interests in planning include wanting to plan and develop suburban communities and other master-planned developments. I have a strong interest as well in sales in the housing industry and working to build residential communities, but from what Ive learned in my program so far is far less technical than I was hoping with no focus on drawing plans or the financials of it to turn a profit in the development industry.
Do you think planning is right for me or are there jobs out there that pertain to my interests? I live in Alberta, which is booming so there are no shortage of jobs, but was wondering if I am a right fit for planning or should be pursuing something else when I get to the masters level.
In my spare time, I enjoy drawing community plans for subdivisions, so I know I am somewhat on the right track.
