    BA Environmental Science... Making the leap to planning.. in NYC

    Hello everyone,

    New to the thread! Can't believe I didn't find this sooner.

    I'm sure I might be repeating an already existing thread, however I was hoping to gather some help specifically catered to my situation. I just recently graduated from SUNY-ESF in Syracuse, NY with a degree in Environmental Science. With a minor in Urban Environment and took as many planning classes as I could.

    I'm looking to start my career in Environmental Planning, ideally in New York City. Currently reside in Albany, NY.

    Unfortunately I am having a hard time getting over the entry level hump, gaining any traction or getting noticed by any of the planning or consulting firms in NYC and was hoping that I could get some advice/tips/etc. on what I could do to help my situation. Somewhat on the fence of whether I should go back to school for my masters in MURP or just keep trucking away at the job scene.

    Any and all advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!!

    You could volunteer for a while, if you can afford to work for free... to get the type of experience you need.
