I'm finishing an MPA i'm trying to determine what the likelihood of landing a planning position with an MPA with a community development concentration. My school doesn't offer an urban planning degree (under grad or grad)

For the concentration it request that I take Intro to Urban Planning & Growth Management, Economic Development & Urban Revitalization, Emergency Management & Planning, as the core courses and several electives.

The Electives include Urban & Municipal Government Administration (textbook is about local planning), Homeland Security Risk Assessment, and Homeland Security Management for State & Local Government.

With an MPA and this concentration, do you think landing a planning job with the feds is realistic. I minored in geography in undergrad so I have some credits in economic and urban geography.

You should repost this in the New Hire forum. You have posted in "Training and Certification," and I doubt you will get responses here. https://forum.federalsou...t.aspx?g=topics&f=17
