"These are all great suggestions. Many firms are going towards BIM (Revit) and Civil 3D which there are courses in. Also if you already are a whiz at Sketchup, I'd look in to rendering programs and render some of your old projects from your…"
"I recently received my master's in LA after my B.S. in Planning, and am having some trouble as well finding a job. I would agree that you should not go back to get your masters if you already have a Bachelors in LA. If you do go back for…"
