Just found this forum -- Great Info!!
Hard to believe but by May I will have my MCRP and have started to think about what is next. The question is not so much what do I want to do but when should I start sending out resumes, what are the differences between working at a public planning agency v a private planning firm, and how to ensure that the job will meet my career objectives.
My husband and I are willing to relocate -- even though we just bought our home here in Baltimore a year ago --- so that opens up the job market quite a bit. My career objectives are to combine my previous community -- economic development experience with my planning studies as a long range planner or planner that works on land - use management and sustainable development initiatives.
Any suggestions on how to go about starting a job search and when the right time to do is? With any luck I will be starting to work by June after crossing the stage on May 18th.
