York University has announced its list of Top 30 Alumni Under 30. The remarkable group of civically engaged young leaders are tackling complex societal challenges in a world facing a convergence of unprecedented trials, all before the age of 30.
School of Human Resources Management alumna, Emily Durham (BHRM ’17), was named in this year’s batch of outstanding alumni.
Durham is a senior recruiter, career coach, content creator and public speaker with a passion for making career education accessible. As a recruiter both in the finance and technology space, Emily connected with hundreds of candidates every week and noticed that people early in their careers often felt ill-equipped to answer common interview questions and struggled with the application process.
To help prepare candidates for their interviews, Emily began to produce and host The Straight Shooter Recruiter podcast, offering step-by-step support for job seekers. With the growth of the podcast, Emily expanded her mission of demystify all things careers to Instagram and TikTok with a reach of 3+ million. Most recently, Emily has been featured in The Financial Post, Bay Street Bull, Narcity and Canadian Business Magazine for her work around career education.
Launched in 2021, York’s Top 30 Alumni Under 30 program seeks to highlight the success and diversity of the University’s alumni community, while inspiring the next generation of young alumni leaders to make a positive difference locally and globally.
