Studied to be a planner for 6 years (undergrad and master's in planning), got hired as a transportation planner, and months later, still mostly doing traffic engineering work. Any advice for how to get out of the engineering hole? I think if I have to spend another 6 months looking at CADD all day I'm going to lose my mind. On top of that, my AICP application got denied because of course, I didn't have enough 'planning' work. So it's a continuous cycle...at this point I literally can't wait to change jobs to anything else but the area I live in has slim pickings in the weird segway between entry level and mid-level (3 years FT work experience).
