From University to Career - Hired Before Graduation, JDI Welcomes its Newest Employees!

Industry News

Congratulations to our newly graduated J.D. Irving, Limited (JDI) employees! We are excited to have 36 graduates from 7 Canadian universities join our growing team.

All 36 students were given job offers before they graduated, largely due to great work during their co-op experiences at JDI.

Are you ready to meet a few of our new employees?!

Pulp and Paper Division

Scott Saunders from Florenceville, New Brunswick will be returning home to start his career with the Pulp and Paper Divisional Project Engineering Team as an Associate Project Engineer. Scott is a recent graduate of Electrical Engineering at Memorial University of Newfoundland and completed two co-op work terms with JDI.

“Securing this position before my final semester gave me piece of mind going into the last 4 months of my degree, allowing me to more thoroughly enjoy the rest of my schooling. I am excited knowing that I am going back to join the same great team at Irving Forest Services, a group I completed a very interesting work term with last fall. I am looking forward to applying my academic experience in the industry, and to exploring Saint John and the surrounding area once I get settled.”
