I'm about to graduate from Ohio State with a degree in Geography, a specialization in urban and regional systems. While I would like to go on to a CRP program, but I want to get out and work for a little while before heading back to school. Do you think a geography degree is good enough to get my foot in the door at a local planning agency ? Did anyone that you know in the field simply use geography and get a position from that. Despite being in a major city, it is very difficult to get internships for geography students, because the CRP program has a virual lock on all the internships in city planning around Columbus. I've called about a half dozen townships and they all are willing to have you come in for free, but it is mostly just sending out mailing and simple copy work. Any thoughts?
