I am a soon-to-be-graduate from college with a BA degree in Computer Science and Studio Art. I have internship experiences in software engineering and web design (as I was originally trying to get a job in the tech industry), but now I really want to try out urban planning as a profession.
I also have some experiences in related fields (an internship at Congress for the New Urbanism, (informally) working with the city government in my neighborhood and other small side-projects in traffic data analysis) but I am not really sure how to mix-and-match with my software engineering experiences. How do I position/market myself in this kind of situation?
Plus, I was wondering if anyone knows any good opportunities outside of traditional government/municipal planning positions. What's out there? Any idea? suggestion?
Thanks a lot for your time and advice in advance!
