I graduated in December 2011 with a undergrad degree's in Community and Regional Planning as well as GIS.
Been on a few interviews, most recent was 2 months ago. Yesterday I received a call about the most recent interview and was offered the position today. Yesterday was the first contact I had received from them since the interview, so I am not sure if the delay is typical or not? It doesn't seem like they extended the position to anyone else since the interview though.
Anyways, I am a little hesitant because it is for County Planner, as in, the ONLY county planner. My real world planning experience is limited to a 3 month internship. I would be responsible for everything, including code enforcement, site plan review, grants, etc. I am a little worried that I am in over my head just a bit. I suppose that if I was extended the offer, they feel that I will be a good fit though. The county is rural and the population is below 30k. There is county wide zoning, but 99% of it is purely residential.
I wanted to get some opinions from a few more experienced planners and see what you guys think. Thanks!
