What I Wish I Knew 

Is it true that private sector planners earn more? Is it true that public sector planners have a greater degree of job security? Are you thinking of transitioning to “the other side” after working in the public sector for many years? Or are you now considering a public sector job as your next move after a time as a private planning consultant? You are likely wondering about the risks and advantages of these decisions, what will life be like in this new professional environment? Making this leap is an exciting yet scary process. Yet, once you decide to make the change, you must decide how to move forward. It is always valuable to get advice from those who have recently made these transitions. This webcast will feature planners who have recently moved between the public and private job continuum. Each will discuss their experiences through a series of questions generated by both a session moderator and the audience. The goal: to breathe reality into the conventional assumptions about public and private sector jobs, and to provide some “first step” advice and encouragement to those contemplating a career move.
