The Telstra Graduate Program

The Telstra Graduate Program

October 21, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


I never thought I would find a career that I could confidently say
I’m passionate about. Being thrown in the deep end
or being challenged is the times where you look back and think ‘That really has changed my career
or got me to where I am today.’ I came in wanting to just have a broad experience which I knew Telstra could give and I thought ‘look, if we’re at the forefront
of what technology is doing I’m going to be in a
pretty good position to jump in.’ It was amazing how quickly
I was influencing people and my voice was heard. On day 1 I was in training
and then within a week or so I was providing advice to
employees straight away. You cannot believe that someone
so new to the company could be working on initiatives
that have such board implications for all of our customers. What I really like about my job,
and I can’t stress this enough, is that it’s ever changing. I’ve constantly got to adapt to
what the market is doing and it’s exciting. I was working on my own projects
and I was able to give recommendations and ideas that were actually implemented. My work was just as valued. The first time that I saw my ad was when I went into one of the Telstra stores and I was just like ‘Wow, that’s my
campaign, I worked on that!’ I genuinely enjoy what I do and it’s going to take me to
where I want to be in a few years.
