If you’re in the penultimate year of your university studies and want to know what it’s like to work to work at Australia’s biggest telecommunications and technology company, our Summer Vacation Program is for you.

Our 12-week Program has been specifically designed to give you hands-on experience, and immersive development and learning opportunities. It also feeds into our Telstra Graduate Program, which means if you perform well in the Program, you’ll be considered for early offers and will join us when you graduate.

Throughout the length of the Program, you’ll be supported by one of our current graduates and be exposed to the cutting edge and innovative work our teams are doing in areas such as Internet of Things (IoT) 5G, Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

So if you’re ready to be challenged, want to learn from the best people in their field, and are interested to find out what it’s like to work in an agile environment, make sure you apply for our Summer Vacation Program.

Applications open on Wednesday July 3.
