"See the Planning Sectors" Panel on 2/27/2018

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

Are you interested in learning more about the realities of working in planning’s different sectors– public, private, and non-profit? Are you interested making a job change between sectors?

Join us for an interactive panel discussion featuring planners working across the sectors. Hear about the differences, benefits, and challenges of working in each kind of job. Speakers will discuss their career experiences, overview typical day-to-day tasks, and share overall advice and takeaways of what it is like to work in each sector. There will be plenty of time at the end for an audience Q&A.

This event is co-hosted by the APA-IL Mentoring Program and APA-CMS. The event is FREE and includes complimentary appetizers with a cash bar.
