Find your edge

Summer Vacation Program

Our unique internship program gives university students in their penultimate year of study 12 weeks of hands-on, paid work experience from late November to late February each year. You’ll get invaluable exposure to senior leaders, exciting projects, cutting-edge technology and, most importantly, knowledge and experience that will give your career a kick-start once uni’s over.

On our program, you'll benefit from relevant industry experience by doing meaningful work on projects that are important to our success. During your time with us you’ll get a broad exposure to our business, relevant to your chosen program stream.

We have five program streams we recruit in to:

  • Business & Commerce
  • Engineering
  • Finance & Strategy
  • Information Technology
  • Marketing

Depending on your program stream and the team you’re placed in, you may be involved in projects such as customer service and business improvement analysis, financial modelling, project management, planning strategic initiatives, networks and infrastructure support, and retail process improvements – the possibilities are vast.

And, to help you understand the diverse work we do here, you’ll get the opportunity to go on exclusive tours of some of our work sites. We’ll also organise various social events during your program to meet and network with other Summer Vacationers.

Most importantly, joining our summer program could potentially be your first step toward a future career with us. Top performers on the program will have the opportunity to fast track their application into our full-time Telstra Graduate Program – ready for you to join us when you graduate!
