I decided to join the BT graduate programme as it consists of 4 different rotations, which means I get to have a taste of different business units and functions. It really allows me to understand how the company operates and learn about all aspects of the business, and the programme provides a lot of flexibility as to which specific area I would like to try. Other than that, the graduate programme provides lots of different support and activities, such as the orientation week in London, the Leadership Week in Malaysia and various virtual training platforms.
I get to work with lots of different people across the business and outside of BT as well, which gives me hands-on exposure. My programme also allows me to meet graduates that are outside of my region; the international exposure is one of the things that encouraged me to join the programme.
Looking at the bigger picture, BT is a multinational telecommunication company, and I’m keen to gain a deeper insight of the industry itself.
