PLANET Career Development Series


What is the PLANET Career Development Series?


PLANET Career Development Series (PLANET CDS) is an opportunity for Student Career Day participants to attend presentations by industry professionals on topics that might not otherwise be offered at their schools and universities. Each PLANET CDS event that a student completes will earn them one validation sticker. The validation form is located in the SCD Pocket Program; students use this to receive stickers (or signatures from an interviewer) from each qualified offering (only 1 sticker per event). Each student needs to earn 3 stickers in order for their involvement to count toward their school's participation and to be eligible for the PLANET CDS award.

  • School with a team of 25 or more
  • 10 - 24 team members
  • Less than 10 members
