In an effort to assist our members in collaborating and in advancing their careers, the Metro Chapter has gathered a list of firms, agencies, developers, and non-profit groups that hire professional planners in the New York metropolitan area. Key information, including website addresses, is provided for each entry. Links to well-known employment sites are also included on this page under Job Links.
