TCI EXPO Student Career Day Partnership

Become a Student Career Day Partner

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.

For 2021, Student Career Days has been re-imagined. The essence of this popular event remains intact, but TCIAF is streamlining some features of the event to improve the experience. Key features of SCD 2021 include:

  • New SCD forums and panel discussions! This year there are new opportunities for SCD partners to get in front of and interact with students. Two new forums have been added to the students’ agenda and the opportunity to speak at these forums will be offered to SCD partners. The main features of SCD 2021 will include the following:
    • Career development and getting the most out of SCD: The opportunities offered through Student Career Days and EXPO can be overwhelming – what a good problem to have! This panel discussion will narrow down the importance of networking, career development, and getting the most out of SCD.
    • Interview preparation workshop: What are some things you should prepare for prior to your interview? Topics discussed during this session will include soft skills vs hard skills, things to look for during your interview, and how to tell if you’re applying for a place worth working for.
    • Student Quad: TCIAF has secured a private room that will feature a “hangout zone” for students – branded with our partners logos. Additionally, this Quad will house the forums and educational sessions for students.
  • Hiring! Students still have the opportunity to network with potential employers at a students’-only job fair on Friday morning and get an inside look at the field they are studying.
    • What does this mean for a sponsoring company? There will likely be more students in attendance at a job fair on Friday! In the past, many schools were burdened by their travel requirements and left the event early, unable to take advantage of a Saturday morning job fair.
  • Challenge! This year students are challenged to visit as many SCD sites as possible while connecting with SCD partners in a meaningful way. Students will be prompted to ask a conversation starter question with each partner, and then take a selfie to document the experience. Think scavenger hunt, but your company can be featured on our social wall with each selfie and student interaction! Not to mention, direct contact with students as they complete their challenges.
  • Additional Opportunities! Since there is a designated room for the student Quad this year, we have the opportunity to offer additional educational forums. Partners can choose from one of two forums to speak at – a new way to market your company and get in front of the students!
    • By becoming a SCD partner, you receive many opportunities for event exposure, website exposure, marketing and communications collateral, logo exposure, and direct access to the students during Student Career Days 2021. This year’s event takes place Thursday, November 4 and Friday, November 5 in Indianapolis, Indiana (during TCI EXPO).
