"The mentorship, growth opportunity, and overall TELUS culture are what attracted me most to apply. I'm excited to begin my journey working alongside great teams and for one of the top employers in Canada."

Eli Boey, 2017 MDP

"The MDP was such a great way to start my career; I really appreciated the opportunity to work on different teams with a strong group of managers, and that experience helped me understand what type of work I wanted to do. I also think what's so unique about the program is the landing experience and the opportunity to really look to the whole company to find the best fit."

Addie Robertson, 2019 MDP 

"The MDP provided me with the opportunity to trial a diverse mix of roles across the organization. It allowed me to both strengthen my existing skillset through exposure to areas of familiarity and broaden my skillset by challenging myself in areas outside of my comfort zone. Ultimately, the MDP put my interests to the test, giving me chance to pursue a career I’m truly passionate about."

Joel Thom, MDP Alum – Marketing Manager
