The paid, 12-week Program, which starts with an induction on Monday 18th November this year and finishes on Friday 21st February, 2020, has been specifically designed to give you hands-on experience as well as immersive development and learning opportunities.

No matter which pathway you choose you’ll be supported by one of Telstra’s current graduates and be exposed to the cutting edge and innovative work Telstra’s teams are doing in areas such as Internet of Things (IoT) 5G, Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

Monash University
Over the years, there has been a sizeable number of studies published reporting that males and females differ in their psychological and physiological stress responses. The Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) is a standardised psychometric questionnaire used to measure an individual?s appraisal of global stress. Cohen et al in 1988, stated that females had a higher average PSS score than males. Since then very few studies have revisited this concept and the ones that have, have provided contradictory results. This study aims to explore, using results from an online survey and conducting various statistical tests on said collected data; whether there is a difference in PSS scores between genders. Completion of this study should allow for a better understanding of the Perceived Stress Scale and should examine whether the scale is able to measure stress equally in males and females.

These results will add to our understanding of the experiences of stress measures in males and females.

Ecostream Consulting
Calling all students interested in sustainability, climate-change and consulting!

Ecostream Consulting is an exciting new student-run, not-for-profit project that allows University students to broaden their impact beyond their everyday enviro-friendly behaviour. Ecostream matches teams of volunteer students with local businesses and gives them the opportunity to explore their day-to-day functioning before providing a report that outlines processes for cleaning up their operations.

The project allows passionate students to gain invaluable consulting experience in the domain of sustainability whilst at the same time helping businesses reduce their environmental footprint. Ecostream is looking for students with a genuine passion for sustainability, an interest in the field of consulting and a desire to stay involved with the project going forward. We are interested in independent workers, self-starters and academically strong candidates from all fields and disciplines.

Projects run for 12-weeks in line with semester and require a commitment of approximately 3-4 hours per week. Students are given real ownership of the assignments- meeting with businesses, conducting research, distributing surveys and providing simple yet effective solutions and advice.

Ecostream Consulting has available on a voluntary basis 5 student-consultant positions and 2 marketing/design positions.

To apply, email your resume along with a short cover letter (less than 300 words) explaining your interest in the project to
