New Planners On The Block

Recent graduates share their surprises after entering the working world.

"Many young planners, fresh out of school, soon discover that planning isn't all about urban design, geographic information systems, and comprehensive plans. A lot of it involves working with the public, helping people understand the need for planning, and explaining what it is.

...Those who want to stick with planning say it isn't always easy to find a job, either as a new graduate or one who is looking to move on to a second, more challenging, position. Amanda Goebel was determined to stay in the Washington, D.C., area to be close to her family. She admits it took her a while to find the right position."
