Alright I've been 7 pages deep on this part of the forum so I don't know if this has been addressed yet.
I'm 18 years old still finishing up my general education at a community college and I will transfer for an urban planning major. My friends and such are finding jobs mostly at retail and I still haven't been employed because I just felt that working at the mall won't do me any good for my career except some side cash until I get there. My question is, are there any internships I can apply for that can introduce me to urban planning? Also, I'm from San Diego and I would like to know what colleges in my area have a great program for urban planning? Basically I just want to know what I am getting myself into. I'd rather be prepared and know more than colleagues at my level since this a competitive career. Any advice would be appreciated Thank you!
