I am proud to work for a company that is focused on gender equality and actively recruits people from different backgrounds and walks of life.
I believe its Telstra’s commitment to diversity and inclusion that enables those of us in leadership positions to manage our tech ecosystems with a unique perspective and to great effect.
I was always interested in the technology and networks domain, so getting the chance to join a world leader in this area when I finished studying was very exciting! I really liked the way the Telstra Graduate Program in Asia was structured as well.
Aside from the work itself (which is as interesting as I’d hoped), I’ve been pleased to discover such an inclusive environment here.
I started my journey at Telstra in the Summer Vacation Program as an information and cyber security intern. One of my most memorable experiences was working in Telstra Labs and it was an eye-opening experience.
The three months I spent there were amazing, as I got to learn about what Telstra is doing in cyber security, V2X autonomous cars, drone technology, virtual reality and augmented reality, humanoids and machine learning.
I joined the Telstra Graduate Program in Asia in early October so I’m still learning the ropes, but so far the experience has been great.
I’ve felt well supported since the beginning, which goes a long way to getting settled. The Program Lead, Candy Lam, has been guiding all of us international grads through everything and giving us a lot of insight into what Telstra is like as an organisation. My teammates have also been very helpful.
Starting out in one of our retail stores has been the starting point for many fantastic careers here at Telstra.
It’s a great way to get a foot in the door with the company, learn all about our industry and products we offer, and to master your sales and customer service skills. There will always be plenty of development opportunities within every store role, to help you grow your career with us.
