Registration is open for landscaping companies to attend Student Career Days (SCD), scheduled for March 12–15 at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C.

Hosted by the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), SCD brings together approximately 850 horticulture and landscape students from more than 65 schools to test their skills in real-world, competitive events and to interview with companies at the career fair, which will be held on March 13.

Ed Furner, LIC, SCD chair, is a former student attendee of the event.

“This is the largest recruiting event of its kind in the landscape industry,” he said. “It helps build careers, and it exposes students and recruiters alike to the bright future of the landscape industry.”

Each year, about 60 companies participate in the career fair and sponsor one or more of the 28 competitive events.

In addition to those, this year, attendees also will be charged with supporting PLANET Academic Excellence Foundation’s “Take Stock in a Student Ambassadorship”. Contributions to the annual Take Stock initiative provide funds to build an ambassador–level scholarship for a deserving student. The 2014 scholarship recipient will be recognized during this year’s event.
