when five schools met at Mississippi State University to compete in the first of what has become PLANET's Student Career Days, this event has grown to become the largest recruiting event and student competition in the industry. Join us next March at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado to reach out to the future leaders of the green industry.
"Students have an awesome opportunity to accelerate their knowledge and careers by attending Student Career Days. Not only will students understand what the hands-on application is like, but in talking with industry leaders it will help steer there course to the desired field of interest within the green industry. Having attended Student Career Days twice as a student, and twice as an industry member, I can say with great satisfaction that the experiences and opportunities that are provided through the conduit of Student Career Days far exceed anything you could ever expect or hope for."
— Timothy Hawkins, Del Conteâ€™s Landscaping, Inc.
"Several of my students have often referred to PLANET Student Career Days as a life changing experience. Through their participation they were able to establish a national network of landscape industry leaders, students, professors and potential employers. They returned to campus with a sense of pride for their chosen career track, and having the opportunity to represent their university on a national scale."
— Steven Cohan, Ph.D., University of Maryland
"Having experienced SCD when I was in college and just beginning to learn what the industry had in store is reason enough to give back to todayâ€™s students in the same, and hopefully better, way. The one thing that hasnâ€™t changed over the years is that students are eager to jump into the industry, and it is great for us to be there to welcome them."
