I am a Assistant Planner in New Jersey with a Masters degree. I have been at my job for approximately one year. Ive been applying for Planning jobs out of state. It seems ive been getting the cold shoulder from out of state employers. Is it the norm for Plannning Departments to shun out of state applicants. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting a planning job when applying from out of state. Has anyone had this problem? If so let me know and tell me how you dealt with it.
