Hire A Planner
Professional service from planning's top students
School of City & Regional Planning students and alumni are highly sought after by employers for internships, co-ops, and full time jobs. Graduates from our programs come with forward-thinking ideas, strong quantitative and analytical abilities, and the necessary skills to contribute right from the start.
To get a better idea of the kind of work students and alumni are doing while in school and after graduation, take a look at the Research + Engagement section of our site. There, you'll get links to full studio reports and student papers, slideshows of alumni projects and publication titles, and an overview of how the School helps shape young planners, designers, and GIS professionals for the future.
Our students are dynamic additions to agencies, firms and third-sector organizations. Many students go on to work in the organizations they intern with after graduation, and our employers continuously request more Tech-educated planners and scientists to strengthen their teams.
Every year, our School hosts a career fair for students of all of our degree programs. Held jointly with the School of Architecture and the School of Public Policy, the fair allows employers to meet with our students and recruit for internships and post-graduation positions. If you would like additional information please contact Zoe Kafkes.
This spring, the Career Fair was hosted on February 22, 2019. Next year's Career Fair date is set for February 21, 2020. If you are an organization interested in having a table at the 2020 Career Fair and want to sign up to receive updates about next year's event, please click here.
This program allows current graduate students to work for an agency/firm while enrolled full-time in school. City and Regional Planning graduate students work part-time in agencies and firms in the eleven county Atlanta metro region while also studying toward their MCRP, MS/GIST, or PhD degree. Tech co-op workers are creative and energetic, bringing the latest city planning technology and ideas into their workplace. These benefits are achieved with flexible, short-term contracts and with compensation packages below those of regular professional employees. Send your job description, contact information, and any questions you have to Sara Howard.
Tech students are consistently reported by internship employers as positively changing the aspirations and dynamics of the organizations they work with. Interns can be hired during the fall, spring, or summer, with many of our students choosing the later and working full time during the summer semester. Please note that it is our policy to only distribute paid internship opportunities to our students. Feel free to send any questions or an electronic copy of your job description and contact information to Zoe Kafkes.
The School of City & Regional Planning student resume book allows employers to look over resumes from the current MCRP/MS-GIST graduates and rising second-year students who are looking for internships, co-ops, and employment. This book becomes available in mid-spring semester, after our career fair. For access to the book from 2019, please contact Zoe Kafkes.
Employers are able to post job notices and review applicant resumes with CareerBuzz. Please specify “City and Regional Planning” students when you post, as this is a university-administered service.
