Registration is now open for companies to attend the largest recruiting event in the landscape industry. PLANET Student Career Days—The National Collegiate Landscape Competition—will take place March 20–23 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO.

Student Career Days 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 landscape, lawn care, irrigation and other companies at the Career Fair, which will be held on Friday, March 21.

Each year approximately 60 companies participate in the Career Fair where they have exclusive access to the nation’s top landscape industry students. Many of the industry’s largest corporations attend Student Career Days and sponsor one or more of the 28 competitive events.

Many of the industry’s most influential companies sponsor competitive events at Student Career Days because they believe they are making an investment in the future of the industry. This year's lead sponsors include Stihl Inc.
