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.
For my commercial marketing team here at Telstra, agile working has become an incredibly important part of our daily working lives.
Agility has improved our workflow, increased the quality of our output and enabled us to better understand and deliver on our customers’ needs.
I’ve struggled throughout my life with what it means to be Indigenous, and I don’t always know whether to introduce myself as Aboriginal or not. It’s common for people to lump Indigenous people together, but the differences between us can be vast.
My experience as a Telstra employee has been great though. I think there’s a good balance here between supporting Indigenous employees, while also treating them to the same as other employees.
I am Indigenous woman and joined Telstra in 2018 through the Telstra Graduate Program, along with people from a variety of backgrounds. Today, I work in the Telstra Digital Channel team.
I have had a very positive experience with inclusion at Telstra. I have always felt comfortable and supported.
