I typed that out on my phone using a Swype keyboard. It's far less intuitive than my old one, which wasn't that good to begin with. The joy of cell phones.It usually helps to have a grammatically correct sentence when seeking jobs Market is still tight for certain regions (coastal regions and major urban areas) but it is un-thawing. As older folks retire with the improving economy, lower level folks move up and the entry level opens back up. Keep options open and have quality internships and a network and you will be okay with a wide-net casted for a job anywhere.
Glad to hear it's thawing a bit. I really can't shake the desire to get a second masters in this. I have no career options right now, I live in an area where the local planning departments do very little (I've tried contacting all of them within a 40 minute drive) and don't need volunteers or interns. Heck, one of the towns of 55,000 people doesn't even have a planning department. Yet one with 30,000 nearby does, go figure. But that cost of school, the years spent studying and the cost of moving (because there are no affordable programs in my state) are all giving me a LOT of pause considering how tight things have been. I want to know I'll have a job that pays at least $40,000 at the end of this.
