TCIAF’s Student Career Days (SCD) is the student component of TCI EXPO.

Open to students enrolled in arboriculture, horticulture, forestry and related programs at all levels, this annual event is the largest FREE career development event for students in the industry.

Put your skills to the test at the Tree Care Skills Competition on Friday – winners receive prizes and bragging rights!

Meet with prospective employers at the Job and Internship Fair on Saturday.

PLUS… Students get access to everything TCI EXPO has to offer – educational sessions and forums, the trade show floor and the Welcome Reception on Thursday evening (ie: countless opportunities to network!).

Did we mention this event is FREE? Registration for Student Career Days 2019 opens in September – student advisors will receive a registration link via email.
