Liam Bone
Strategy & Planning COE
Commercial Specialist
I'm a young and energetic graduate with a passion for finance and all things business. I recently graduated from the University of New South Wales with a degree in Commerce majoring in Finance and Business Law.

Having worked at Unilever as an Intern I learnt many skills essential for success which I've now taken across to Telstra as a Graduate in Consumer and Small Business.

Outside of work I love to travel, I've been to 18 countries. I have recently completed a 6-month exchange at Virginia Tech and as a result I have aspirations to live and work overseas.

In the long term, I hope to be able to use all of these skills and experiences to become an entrepreneur and run my own business. 

  • How the Telstra Graduate Program has set me up for career success

    Securing a place in a graduate program is a source of anxiety for many final year university students. Though it’s not the end of the world if you don’t get a place, they do offer undeniable benefits to people who participate in them.

    I went through the Telstra Graduate Program and it’s had so many positive knock-on effects for me in terms of my career and capabilities. 

  • What I have learnt from working remotely - my top tips to help you

    Working as a Telstra graduate has been a little different recently, with most office-based teams working remotely because of COVID-19.
    My team has always worked partially from home thanks to Telstra’s All Roles Flex policy, which means that for me personally, the transition hasn’t been too hard in terms of the work itself. However, I’ve found it difficult to get used to the absence of people around me each day and I really miss seeing my colleagues and fellow graduates regularly.

  • Why Telstra is a great place to launch your career

    I completed my degree in Commerce majoring in Finance and Business Law at UNSW. I had a number of jobs in various industries while studying – so I already had some experience. But since I began working as a graduate at Telstra last year, I’ve been on a journey of continuous learning, development and growth.
