The Waste Management Career Day was a bunch of people that work different positions at waste management coming to talk to us about various positions available.

I didn’t know too much about Waste Management before this day. When I thought of Waste Management I thought of the garbage men that come every week. However, I had no idea that there are tons of different positions at waste management. For example there are managers, engineers, educators etc. My favorite speaker was this one woman who told us that she was working at Starbucks and this customer came in and told her she would be really good working for waste management being a manager. The speaker took her up on the offer and now she’s making really good money and is able to put both of her daughters through college.

The field trip definitely opened my eyes to a whole bunch of possible careers that have to do with the environment. I will be looking into the internships that Waste Management offers as well.
