What is Student Career Day?

Student Career Day (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.

Whether you’re a student, a tree care company, or a tree care industry supplier, manufacturer or service provider, SCD is a valuable event for you. Keep reading to find out why!

  • Students and instructors receive complimentary entry to the trade show floor and all of the educational seminars for all three days of TCI EXPO.
  • Our free students-only Job and Internship Fair features some of the biggest names in tree care and gives students the chance to interview with them.
  • Students compete in climbing events for the chance to win gift certificates for merchandise, compliments of STIHL.
  • Free food, t-shirts and giveaways.
  • Plus…TCIA has limited funding available through TCIA via sponsorship to reimburse the students for some of their travel expenses.
