Becoming a local representative in your area for any of these vendors is a great way to learn about the business, see how these products are used in the field, and gain exposure to many of the firms in your region.

This is a great way to network with other professionals in your area, and could one day lead to a possible design job with a firm.

While these are just a few ideas that I have come up with, I hope that I’ve given you some food for thought today. I know that hunting for a job in this market is not easy.

While I’ve only touched on a few alternative careers for landscape architects, I would like to know if you have any other ideas. If you do, and you would like to share, please feel free to leave a comment below, send me a tweet, or even an email. I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a great weekend!
