Launching your career at Filta can be an exciting journey! But before diving in, you likely have some questions. We’re here to address concerns you may have and provide a clear picture of the Filta Graduate Program.

What is a graduate program?

A graduate program can be like a jumpstart for your career. These programs help you develop specialized skills and, grow, and gain valuable experience that will make you a strong candidate for leadership positions. They can also be a quicker path to success within a company, as employers often see graduate degrees as a sign of dedication and expertise in a specific field.

  • Is this like an internship?
    • While both offer valuable hands-on experience, there’s a key difference. Internships are typically for students who are still building their skill sets.
