Houston-based trash collection giant Waste Management drew 739 military personnel and spouses in two hours during a virtual career day this summer—and it’s not over. The firm is experi­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ment­ing with a “perpetual online career fair” that will stay “open” year-round in its effort to recruit active-duty personnel, vet­erans and military spouses.

During the online event’s first two hours, the company clocked 187 email exchanges, 286 chats and 180 content downloads. The fair is staffed and organized by Milicruit, which specializes in virtual career fairs.

Wes Reel, Waste Management’s di­rec­tor of disability and military recruiting outreach programs, says the firm hires a vet nearly every day of the year. Already, 12% of em­­ployees are veterans.
