Welcome Fall Co-op Students!

J.D. Irving, Limited is pleased to welcome 49 co-op students across our divisions this fall. 

Recognizing the value of developing the skills of today’s students, JDI incorporates students in varying roles across its divisions. This fall term, we are proud to partner with eight universities and colleges, allowing students the opportunity to experience rewarding co-op terms in the areas of accounting, finance, communications, human resources, and engineering.

“We value the relationships we have with local universities and community colleges and the opportunity to engage students through co-op programs,” said Colleen Baxter, Vice President of Human Resources, J.D. Irving, Limited. “This is a great way to meet the next generation of employees and provide them with valuable learning experiences and potential career opportunities. As we look to hire over 7900 people across our operations between 2015 and 2017, co-op and summer student programs are a vital link to skilled and passionate new employees.”

This fall, co-op students are joining us from the following universities and colleges: 

• Dalhousie University
• Memorial University of Newfoundland
• Mount Saint Vincent University 
• Saint Mary’s University
