I arrived in Hong Kong on a graduate rotation with Telstra, just before COVID-19 started to cause disruption.
Despite the unusual circumstances lately, my experience in the Telstra Graduate Program has continued to be amazing and I’m still making sure that I get the most out of this experience every day. Here’s what I have achieved so far.
We were already well prepared when we made the move to working from home back in March, thanks to Telstra’s All Roles Flex policy and the support from our leaders.
A few days before the lockdown stages began, our team conducted a test run of working from home, which enabled us to really live the experience and ensure we were set up for success.
As a Telstra Graduate Ambassador, I add value to the overall graduate experience by bringing together grads from different business functions and backgrounds.
I’ve been supported in many ways at Telstra. As a graduate, everyone knows you’re still learning, and they’re all there to guide and help you.
As a recent university graduate, I entered the Telstra Graduate Program unsure of the direction I wanted to take my career.
However, since joining the Program I’ve had so much support and inspiration from other graduates, colleagues and the Telstra careers team. I’ve been given the opportunity to experience some amazing benefits and have realised how lucky I am to begin my career at a company as great as Telstra.
