(S1E4) Disorganizational behavior.

Many Urban Studies students enter the program with a vision of themselves as graduates with a job in making plans, policies, and other initiatives for a municipal organization. Some carry such careers through their time in the Urban Studies program and emerge on the other side of their studies with a renewed view of their work, or a new position within the organization. Working for a city organization is a tried and true career choice for urbanists. Or is it? And is working for a big municipal organization anything but becoming an “organization man” lacking individuality? Find out from our alumni in this episode how they work in municipal organizations to stay true to what they learned in Urban Studies, and how their urban studies credential adds creativity, and a bit of chaos, to their work.

Alumni: Cathy Buckham, Peter Marriott, David Sadler
