"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…"

"I'll echo a lot of what's been said - get a job in anything related to LA (planning, CAD work, nursery, HomeDepot, landscaping) or really anything.  Showing a good work ethic, ability to multi-task and meet deadlines is a big part of…"

"Congratulations on graduating, unfortunately it is very tough out there. I graduated in 2010 and it took me about eight months to find a full time LA related job. The hardest part is just getting a foot in the door to interview. I applied to…"

"The job market for us is very tough! I graduated in May 2011 and until last week I was able to score my first job in the profession!  Keep your resume and portfolio up to date. Take advantage of technology. Put your resume and portfolio online…"

Fresh graduate stuck and need advice

Hello, I'm a new member to the site, and what a great place for resources/information.I just graduated last June and, like most people, struggling to find any jobs directly in line with landscape architecture, or related for that matter. I have brief experience in a professional setting, which I feel is my disadvantage unfortunately. I am constantly on the look for anything I feel I am qualified for, or at least somewhat, and apply to anything I can find. I've hadn't much luck, though. I've…See More
