New Grads, New Hires! Welcoming UNB Grads!


We are delighted to have new hires celebrating their UNB graduations this week. As they cross the stage and become UNB alumni, they also become the newest members of the JDI team. 

They’ll be in good company; over 650 UNB graduates work across JDI operations. Thirty-three percent of those grads work in leadership roles. 

We asked some of our new grads how it feels to receive a job offer before graduation, and why they chose JDI to launch their career:
