hello everyone...i have been making some posts on here and not making a proper introduction; goes against my southern upbringing. i fall in line with the other guild of geographers-turned- planners. i am a virgo, born in the year of the rabbit and currently working as a peace corps volunteer in the former soviet republic of ukraine. i hail from the great and unfortunately sprawling state of north carolina. i am working like crazy on implementing western planning ideologies and concrete plans with regional and state governments here. after much animosity and being asked if i was a spy for the CIA by countless ukrainian officials, i just got my comprehesive regional development plan passed with the regional government here and in time for my completion of service. first time a foreigner (especially an american) conducted such a feat (and you thought planning boards were tough...whew). sorry had to blow my whistle a little bit. coming home in a few weeks after much needed r&r in western europe and starting the job hunt in the western part of the country. i am not limited by geography in my job hunt. if you guys were hiring, what would think about peace corps volunteer experience? i worked a lot in planning project management, international partnerships coordination (funding), and regional planning initiatives dealing mainly in economic development planning, infrastructure development, and community initiatives. just asking. i have been out of the american loop for while. also, i would also like to maybe continue in the international realm. APA put on its website that, apparently, china is hiring planning consultants like crazy. any idea where hiring information for these jobs may be? i checked the APA page and searched using a bunch of engines, but found little. advice will be well received. i look forward to getting to know the people here and can't wait to hear from you.
