Hi, Im new to the website. Ive always been interested in urban planning but only recently have I thought about pursuing a career in the field. I'm a soon-to-be graduating college senior with a B.S in history and a double minor in business administration and political science. I've had two pretty good internships: one in the public sector and a marketing internship at a Fortune 500 company. I'm not familiar with GIS and only have limited experience with AutoCAD. I'm realistic to the fact that the job market still hasn't recovered and that I don't have any prior schooling/experience in urban planning doesn't help my chances.
I know I will have to attend grad school to get a MUP and would plan on starting that within the next 2-3 years. I would just really like to get some experience in the field before I commit myself to another degree. I'm really interested in urban planning and I'm pretty sure this is the career path I want to follow.
So basically, my question is what kind of chance do I have at landing any type of internship or entry level position? Or, what skills would I have to pick up to increase my chances?
