    Urban Planner looking for work

    I did a Master's in City and Regional Planning several years ago. After that, I had a 3-month internship in a municipal neighbourhood revitalization department, then I looked for planning jobs for 6 months, then I worked as a Planner I at a municipal planning department but I had to resign after only a few months, and for 1.5 years after that I worked as an urban planning consultant for a couple of firms (quite underpaid). After all that, two years ago, I started another Master's - this time in Environmental Impact Assessment, to broaden my planning-related skills and to increase the chance of getting jobs (and that program has an internship requirement, which I've already fulfilled). Now, I'm in the middle of writing a thesis for my second Master's, and I'm looking for planning or environmental jobs that fit my qualifications.

    Welcome from the Great State of Ohio! Not sure if you are joining just to try and get a job, or if you want to join our community. If it is the second, welcome; if it is the first, I would imagine you won't be around for too long.
