Good Luck with your search. I work for a Park Authority also and always worry about stability. We are lucky in that politics drives park openeings, so our group (planning and development) always has plenty to do. We are operating at almost half staff these days. Operations has been decimated.
The other half of our group is paid for by bond funds, so no bonds-no work.
You’ve gotta branch out to other fields who are looking for graphic design, rendering, modeling, and drafting services if you are looking to ‘hang in there’ for the time being and still build your resume. The harsh reality and key to finding a job these days it to drop your standards and be willing to relocate.
What people forgot that landscape architects with their training and big picture visions and adapt and prosper under any circumstances…………EYES ARE ALWAYS WIDE OPEN and taking everything in….Its who we are
No…..I enjoy it immensely. People get on the defensive way to quickly ( myself included at times) and we all need to chill…..besides the mothership has landed and i am receiving signals that it is time to board..
From now on instead of being landscape architect i proclaim myself as a dissident soviet cosmonaught.
