Looking for employment?

What can you do to keep your skills sharp? Where else can you look for a job? Here's a few suggestions:

 

APA-IL and the APA-IL Chicago Metro Section (CMS) have been putting together networking events and keep unemployed members involved. The CMS also offers once a month workshops and sessions regarding current topics and issues. It's a great place to stay current and meet fellow planners in the Chicago area.

Become involved in APA-IL's Emerging Planning Professionals Group (EPP) which advocates strong participation of students and recent graduates, but also welcome persons of any age who are relatively new to the planning profession.

 

Become involved in the APA-IL's Mentoring Program which connects APA-IL's young professionals and students with our network of experienced professional planners.
