I am writing to seek some advice about current job prospects in the field of Urban Planning in Canada. I have over 10 yrs of experience in architecture/structural engineering. Interestingly, with the time; I have realized my fascination towards planning so I am looking forward to make a carrier switch by studying Masters in Urban Planning.
However, I am unclear about current Job scenario in Canada, given the recessionary times in the market.
Even though I have relevant industry experience, I am bit worried about having no experience in Urban Planning in particular, when I graduate, that might be required to apply for a job. It could become a demerit for me to start a new carrier with fewer job options and having no prior experience to begin with. That is why I want to take a feel of the bumps I may have to face or many might be already facing after this carrier switch. Could someone please help me make-up my mind by shedding some light on the future outlook of Urban Planning in Canada?
Sorry to put up my dilemma, any response would be much appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.
