The Jetstar Group is made up of Jetstar Airways (a subsidiary of the Qantas Group) in Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia in Singapore, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam and Jetstar Japan.

In a decade and a half, Jetstar has a fleet of over 130 aircraft that offer more than 5,000 flights a week to over 85 destinations across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific. We’ve also carried over 250 million passengers!

At Jetstar we want to make a positive contribution to the communities we operate in. Jetstar has helped raise over $10 million through the Starkids program, a partnership with World Vision to support development projects in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. We also offer grants worth $30,000 to fund charitable community projects through the Flying Start program. Our passengers can make their own journey carbon neutral when they book via Jetstar.com

Our Graduates

Jetstar


Meet 2018 graduate – Hayley

Meeting 2019 graduate – Blake


kate-jetstar

Name: Kate Di Meo

Degree: Bachelor of Commerce (BCom), majoring in Management & Marketing at Melbourne University

Graduate program cohort: 2017

1. What’s your current job title?

Product Specialist – Club Jetstar

2. How did your rotations help you choose your current career path?

In each rotation I got exposure to variety of different business areas, such as Digital Marketing, Networks & Planning, Business Transformation and Operations Improvement. Once I had experienced a variety of different business units, I knew that I wanted to be in a role that combined different elements of each area, particularly Marketing and managing projects. Now I’ve been in my Product Specialist role for a year, and I love it!

3. What are your areas of responsibility as a Product Specialist?

I work on our Club Jetstar product, which is a paid membership program offering members a discount on their airfares, baggage and seat selection. My role looks after our existing members, and involves building a strategy and roadmap of initiatives to ensure that we’re providing members with as much value as possible, so they want to stay with the program. Some things I work on include launching new benefits for the program, finding new opportunities for partner offers and improving the website experience for members.

4. Which three pieces of advice would you give to a current university student? They don’t necessarily have to be related to your role, or even be career-focused.

  • Start building your network now – make sure your LinkedIn profile is up-to-date, reach out to current Grads, speak to careers advisors, attend uni networking events and start getting your name out there to show your interest early!
  • Research the companies you’re interested in applying for - understand their values and culture, to see whether you can envision yourself working there (their websites are definitely a good place to start). Go in prepared to talk about the business, how you would fit in and any ideas you have to improve it. Make sure to personalise your resume and cover letter to match the company you’re applying for too.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions (always!) – from in interviews to when you have secured a position, show your curiosity, and even if you think it’s a silly question, chances are someone else is thinking it too. Use questions as an opportunity to learn and grow.

felix-jetstar

Name: Felix van den Broek

Best Degree: Bachelor of Science (Mathematics & Physics) and a Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace) (Honours) at University of Sydney

Graduate program cohort: 2019

What is your current job title?

Graduate - A321 NEO Program Coordinator

What are your areas of responsibility?

The team I work in manages the entry into service of a new model of aircraft that Jetstar has purchased. This means coordinating all the readiness activities of almost all operational and commercial departments in Jetstar. My day to day work consists of mostly project management work, with a variety of tasks thrown in as various teams need support.

Can you describe a typical workday? What was the last thing you worked on?

There is nothing typical when working in a project management role, or most roles within Jetstar. The workplace is very flexible, but I tend to arrive between 7.30 – 8.30am. From there I would check my email and have a look what is on for the day. A bit after 9am we tend to get a coffee then settle in for the day: meetings, analysis, workshops. Or some days, something just pops up and you spend your day on that. The most recent thing I worked on was defining the weight and balance zones for the new aircraft and ensuring that regardless of the number of people on board we assign seats to get a balanced distribution across the cabin.

What three pieces of advice would you give to a current university student?

Personal connections and being easy to work with are more important in the workplace than at university. Remembering that there will inevitably be a variety of people you need to collaborate with and being good at doing that will be an asset.

When leaving university, you are not a ‘grad’. You were hired as an employeeso you should feel like you can make your contribution heard while being respectful of other people’s experience and skills. You will be confused and make mistakes at times. Don’t underestimate other people’s understanding and willingness to help. Be open and curious, asking a good questions is just as respected as having an answer.
