Posting employment and co-op education opportunities for LAT students at PCC

If you are seeking one of these situations, please read carefully the appropriate information below and follow the directions to complete your request.

Landscape employment opportunities

A legitimate professional landscape employer is defined as a landscape management professional, landscape contractor, nursery, arborist, landscape designer, or related vendor who carries all necessary licenses, bonds, and insurance (e.g. liability, worker’s compensation) to operate legally.

To post a legitimate professional employment position to the LAT email employment listserv please provide the following:

  1. Title of the position
  2. Name of the company, including the address and phone number
  3. Description of the position and rate of pay
  4. Qualifications for the position
  5. Contact information (name, phone number, and email)
  6. How to apply

PCC LAT does not advertise casual yard work or day labor positions for homeowners.

Landscape design employment opportunities

A homeowner seeking landscape design services from PCC LAT students may post the opportunity as a potential paid employment situation. To post a landscape design employment opportunity to the LAT email employment listserv please provide the following:

  1. Homeowner’s name and contact information
  2. Description of the design services wanted
  3. Budget and/or pay rate (may be negotiated by the client and the designer independent of PCC)
