About the Summer Vacation Program

Our Summer Vacation Program, which starts in November this year, will give you 12-weeks of paid, challenging, hands-on and rewarding work experience.

It has been specifically designed to ensure you're provided with immersive development and learning opportunities. It also feeds into our Telstra Graduate Program, which means if you're one of our top performers you'll be considered for early offers and will join us when you graduate.

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