I'm a recent graduate (in language- not planning/design field) and considering starting graduate studies in urban planning/landscape architecture. From forum comments it looks like the current job outlook in the US is pretty dismal. That raised two questions in my mind, which weren't well represented in the current posts:
-Are there any regions in the world where planning is quite desirable/experiencing meaningful growth? (especially in entry level positions)
-Having a MUP/LA from the US, is it possible/realistic that one could practice planning as a profession in other countries? (assuming language proficiency)
I would really appreciate any informed comments on these points.
