Hi there- I just need a little perspective from other planners. I have worked in planning for over 7 years in various locations in the US and have worked up to a senior staff position in my current job. For the past 5 years, I have worked solely on Long-Range Planning. The other 2 years were a mix of internships and very little current planning. Thus, I have very little experience in reviewing site plans, zoning cases, etc. My family has recently decided to relocate to a different area (we're trying to get jobs there first, though). However, the only jobs available so far are jobs in current planning, and they're entry-level or just above entry level.
Assuming that the pay is within my desired range, do you think it looks bad to take a step back in my career to do a current planning job? My thinking is that it might be good to get more current planning experience under my belt if I want to eventually be in a director type of position. Maybe I should just hang out until the economy picks up?
Opinions are appreciated!
