“So far we are quite impressed with the talent that we have been talking to,” said Kristen Drapeau, Manager of Student Recruitment for J.D. Irving, Limited. “Some of the students have already been very proactive and applied for some of our co-op opportunities, our summer internships, and some of our summer jobs. It is nice to finally put a face to a name when we come to these events.”
In 2014 JDI hired 1,413 people across all divisions and is forecasting over 7000 hires between 2015 and 2017. For more information on our career fairs or career opportunities within JDI, visit our new JDI Careers Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, or visit our careers section.
