In my opinion, the best way to get the most out of your graduate experience is by moving out of your comfort zone.
The flexibility and supportive culture at Telstra has enabled me to explore various career options and to learn that I like working in areas that I didn't think I would.
The Telstra Graduate Program is an immersive, 14-month program developed for students who have recently completed university. If you’re accepted into the program, you’ll go through a journey designed to complement your studies and set you up for career success.
We offer several different pathways with a focus on technical, engineering, corporate and product roles.
We've had to make quite a few changes to our recruitment processes at Telstra recently as we move to a more virtual application and onboarding experience for our grads.
It’s not all change, though. The fundamental attributes we look for in our graduates remain the same. Candidates still need to do their research and be prepared. They still need to be their authentic selves and apply for jobs that are right for them, so we can help them develop and thrive with us.
Being in the Telstra Graduate Program taught me a lot of valuable skills and showed me how to function effectively within a very large organisation.
During my rotations, I worked on an existing product as well as one in the pre-launch phase, which exposed me to everything from the legal, to budgetary, to go-to-market elements of the product development process.
