👋 Meet Ankita Suryavanshi 👩‍🎓 "Being in the Telstra Graduate Program taught me a lot of valuable skills and showed me how to function effectively within a very large organisation. Now, my time on this amazing program has led me to a full-time position as a Business Analyst. When Kim Krogh Andersen, the Group Executive for P&T, addressed my cohort at our graduate farewell ceremony, he had one piece of advice that stuck with me: "Say yes to every opportunity that comes your way" and that is exactly what I intend to do!"

Meet Mayur Kriplani, Cyber Security Product Specialist and former intern of our Summer Vacation Program. 🛡️💻 💭 "I started my journey at Telstra in the Summer Vacation Program as an information and cyber security intern. One of my most memorable experiences was working in Telstra Labs and it was an eye-opening experience. The three months I spent there were amazing, as I got to learn about what Telstra is doing in cyber security, V2X autonomous cars, drone technology, virtual reality and augmented reality, humanoids and machine learning. At the end of the Summer Vacation Program, I was lucky enough to be offered a place in the Telstra Graduate Program, which started in early 2020."
