Rising Star – Shubham Anandani

To begin with, it all started in Oracle's Bangalore office. I joined Oracle HSGBU on 1st of July 2013. I was always told that the shift from college life to corporate life would be a drastic change but after joining Oracle and undergoing training on various technologies, I still felt I was in college. Time flew by and after completing the trainings I was assigned a team in Hyderabad.[Read More]

【社員インタビュー②】中途入社オートンさん

キャリアバックグランド

 日本で最初のキャリアはレノボでした。その後はアメリカンエクスプレス、シスコ、DELLには4年半おりました。日本オラクルに入社したのは昨年(201412)ですが、仕事を通して昔からよく知っていました。

現在のお仕事

 オラクルが独自に開発しているオラクルOSの営業です。新卒のみなさんにはなかなか分かりづらいかもしれませんが。仕事のスケジュール感は、週に4,5件はお客さんのところに訪問にいきますね。その他はオラクルのイベントへの集客を行ったり、まだ研修期間なので製品トレーニングが結構あります。トレーニングの一環で、今度アメリカのサンタクララに行きます。新卒で入社する方も研修で海外に行くことはありえると思います。早く帰るときは午後530分くらいには会社を出ますね。もちろん残業するときもあります。ただ遅くても8時くらいには会社を出ます。家でも仕事できますし、そのためのインフラもオラクルはしっかり整備しているのでいいですね。

営業のお仕事は大変?

 大変だと思ったことはありません。というか、自分の仕事を営業と思ったことがありませんね。製品を売る仕事ではなく、お客さんの問題を解決する仕事だと思っています。問題解決をすることでその企業がハッピーになる。オラクル製品を導入したことを決定したクライアントの担当者は社内で高い評価を得る。その人が社内で昇進するかもしれない。そうするとその人の家族がハッピーになる。

 要するに、私は自分の仕事を問題解決を通してクライアントをハッピーにする仕事だととらえています。いい製品であればわざわざ人が売る必要がありません。そこにいわゆる営業という人が介在する価値は、やはりコミュニケーションを通して自分のクライアントをハッピーにする解決手法を一緒に考えてあげることだと思います。それに、IT製品(特にオラクル製品)は日本の経済を支える根幹です。自分の仕事は日本経済を支えているという実感が持てて充実していますよ。

オラクルの新卒が優秀である4つの理由

高い人材の質

日本オラクル平均年齢は約40歳。約2,500人いる社員数のうちほとんどが中途の方です。どの方もずっとIT業界の最先端でビジネスをしてきた営業の人ばかり。ビジネスセンス、実績、人柄などいずれもトップタレントです。このような質の高い人と一緒に働き、成長をする新卒。やがては先輩達と肩を並べるくらいになり、同じくトップタレントの仲間入りをします。

 人は財なり、とよく言います。会社経営にとって人はかけがえのない財産です。幸運にも日本オラクルには業界で活躍する人達が自然と集まってきます。その人達のなかで本物の営業力を学ぶことができることがオラクルに優秀な新卒がたくさんいる理由です。

教育制度の充実

 新卒はオラクル製品とビジネススキルを中心にみっちり研修を受けます。ビジネススキルでは特にビジネスマナーとともに、プレゼンテーション能力に焦点を当て研修が行われます。最初の3~4ヶ月でこれらについて学び、後はOJTで少しずつ現場を経験していきます。

 既述の研修内容は研修プログラムを開発する専門 の社内機関が提供しています。その他にも社内で受けられる研修コースというのは多岐に渡ります。より高度な営業スキル、プレゼンテーションスキル、交渉能 力を学びたいという方に対しても充実したプログラムが用意されています。

スケールの大きい仕事

 オラクル製品は企業(官公庁も)の活動を支える基盤です。オラクル製品がなければ 企業活動が続けられない企業もあります。日本の名だたる企業であってもシステムの根幹はオラクルのビジネスマン達が支えています。与えるインパクトが大き い製品を提供しているのがオラクルの特徴。また、個人が動かす金額が大きいのも特徴。1人の営業マンが億単位の売上を出すこともあります。自然と人間的なキャパシティも広がっていきます。...

"...This is my future" by Shaikha Al Shehhi

My name is Shaikha and I am an Oracle intern. I am based in United Arab Emirate in the Abu Dhabi Office. I work with the Technology team and my focus will be in Database.

When I was presented with the opportunity to join Oracle, I told myself this is my future. It is my dream to join one of the biggest companies over the world. Although 6 months may be a short period of time, I will utilize this period in the best of my ability and gain as much knowledge as I can from fellow oracle employees.

Before I began my internship in Oracle I worried about many things. One thing is how I will treat many people from different countries there? And will they be cooperative with me or not?

Being an Oraclite - More Than a Dream by Dhanush!!

Those were the days, when I would be working on my laptop and suddenly a pop-up regarding java updates would show up prompting me to update Java on my system. Once updated, it would always show "Oracle" in red and fascinate me.

In our day to day life we come across so many software applications that make our life simple and easier with their user friendly experience and latest sophisticated innovative technologies. This inspired me to get into IT field and to learn and contribute to technology.

 Reaching the final year of engineering, one question that bothers a student the most would be "What next"?  And it had already begun haunting my mind. I was looking towards getting a Placement in an Organization where I will be able to utilize and enhance my knowledge.

When the placement process began and we heard that a unit of Oracle ‘Oracle Cloud Services’ is coming to our college my excitement knew no bounds. Yes!!! It is the same "Oracle" which would fascinate me always. I was very excited and started preparation with full enthusiasm.

The recruitment process of Oracle started on 13th Sept 2014 with an online test with over 400+ candidates attempting it. It was the "race of life" for everyone including me. Adding to my anxiety, it took 4 panicking days for the results to get announced and yippee!!! I was one among the top 66 students who cleared the test...

Taking the next big step in life with Oracle by Soham!!

Days come and days go. But there are days on which you start from no where and in the end finish it off in a style you had never thought before. 3rd September, 2014 was one such day. It was that very day on which Oracle Financial Services Software (OFSS) came to our campus for recruitment. Having cleared the aptitude & technical test I got the opportunity to appear for the interviews.

It was just like any other day from waking up to rushing to college to attend the Pre Placement Talk. But things started to become more exciting as the interview rounds began. There were going to be two rounds of interviews-Technical & HR/Behavioral. In the beginning there were about 110 candidates for the interviews. As I sat and waited for my turn the coordinators came from time to time and declared the names of people who were rejected or selected for the next round of interview. So as u can guess the adrenaline levels began to rise gradually.

As I was a student of Electrical Engineering I was quite unsure about what the interviewers would like to see in me because I being from a Non-IT background was not that familiar with CS stuffs like C++, Java, DBMS etc. I saw my friends trying to study thick books of CS as if they would mug up the whole book within hours but I decided to keep it simple and show them the real me and be honest about what I know and what I dont know...

Realised a dream by Akshata!!

We were greeted by the unpredictable Chennai rains when we had Oracle recruitment. It only added to my nervousness before the first round, but the interviewer greeted me cordially and helped me calm my nerves. In this first round I was tested on basics of the programming skills, languages, puzzles etc. Then came the arduous wait for the results whether I was shortlisted for the next round.

The moment I heard my name I was filled with joy and entered the second round on a high. Hence I was able to answer confidently and in a better way than the first round. But as I waited again for the call for the final round, I was both excited yet nervous, as I could see my dream coming true. It all sunk in only when finally I was called to attend the final HR round. It was one of those occasions where you feel so near to our dream and hence enjoy the interaction without tension. Here in I was asked a few things about myself.

The process in general is very well designed to test our programming and related skills, and the interviewers helped us settle comfortably on this tense occasion for a student who is on the cusp of realizing their dreams

Placed in Oracle..A dream lived by Nitish!!

Oracle needs no introduction. Everyone from the IT world aspires to be a part of Oracle. No doubt, the best brains at every college compete against each other to join such a prestigious company.

Oracle visited our campus on 3rd September 2014. A pre-placement talk was organized before the interview.Having shortlisted for the interview itself was a big motivation for me, but, obviously I was not alone. There were 70 more students shortlisted for the same, most of them being from CS and IT branches. So, the competition was really tough. During the talk, my mind was obsessed with the thought that if I would be smart enough to be a part of this group or not and that made me nervous. But to my utter surprise, one of the panel shared how nervous he felt during his college days at the time of interview and how he overcome it, I instantly related my situation with his narration. That made me quite relaxed and boosted my confidence. Finally the interview started. It had two rounds. The first round was a technical round and the second was an HR round.

My Technical interview began on a relaxed note. It was more of a discussion than the regular Question Answer session. The interviewer was very experienced and friendly. I was asked to explain my projects. Later, he asked me to write simple codes like finding transpose of a matrix, conversion of decimal numbers to roman numerals etc. Innovative approach was encouraged. Some questions from C++ and basics of Operating system were also touched upon. I also realized , the questions were aimed more to test the clarity of ideas and the ordering of the thoughts, than the detailed technical description . Finally, he gave me puzzles to solve. I was nervous if i would clear the H.R round,but yes luck and my parents blessings favoured me.I was called in for the H.R round .

"Work hard, play hard" by Anil Kara

It was a new beginning in my life. Hence, it gave me a tremendous feeling of excitement to jump into a new kind of atmosphere, to meet new people and to gain new experiences. It was a similar feeling as if it were the beginning of University. However, Oracle provides a great working environment where I can feel absolutely free and so I felt like a member of the family straight away. Having such talented and kind colleagues always gives me the courage and opportunity to learn new skills, to break limits and to discover my full potential. When I came to the office on the first day, the office felt like home...

Student Engagement + Customer Engagement = Inspiration by David Talamelli!!

I have been travelling to India for the past 4 years now at the end of November/early December to visit our India Campus Team, meet with internal customers and go to the IIT’s for Oracle’s IIT hiring. This trip while I am only half way into my itinerary has been such a productive, humbling and inspirational trip for me.

I am so proud of our India Campus Team, I always wanted our team to be known for providing outstanding customer service and for leading the way in campus recruitment. There are always challenges in a large corporate environment but our team has so much positivity about them it is contagious and I see this in the conversations I have with our customers who believe in what we do and the direction we are going. From so many conversations with our team and with our customers I am very excited for the future of Oracle Campus Recruiting in India (stay tuned for more :)

Equally inspiring is getting the chance to talk to students and hear their stories and hear about their experiences here at Oracle. Earlier this week, I had the chance to meet about 50-60 of our graduates who started earlier in the year with us. In Asia-Pacific we hire a large volume of students. It was so great to be able to meet some of our recent graduate hires and hear from them the positive impact of getting the chance to work at Oracle has given the them. I also had the chance to meet a group of graduates who joined us earlier in the year, who give their time, effort and resources to help under privileged children locally in Bangalore. To see such generosity and maturity from students to give back to the community they way they do is really a humbling experience. We assisted and donated a number of Oracle backpacks that will be used and welcomed...

Eren's 158th day in Oracle!

Written by Eren Akbaba

Today is my 158th day in Oracle. And I want to build my future in Oracle to 15,800 days. You know why? Because since the start of my internship, I am learning skills which I cannot learn in school. In my first week I met my team, who I knew from my summer internship in 2013, and I made myself a plan which was very useful for my development in Oracle. I started to work on some database issues, took notes about them and made demos of them. After I learned them, I started to prepare presentations about them. Now I have my own presentation about all database issues in Oracle 12c, and I am ready to present them to customers. With this, my mentor and director who are very helpful in my development support me and this gives me self-motivation and self-confidence. I presented to our customers; I went to field and developed myself with my mentor etc. In conclusion my work development is on the right track...

My BDC Intern Experience at Oracle by Zeynep

Hi Everyone,

My name is Zeynep. I am a Business Development Consultant (BDC) intern based in Istanbul. As everyone says, first impressions are very important. I am also a firm believer of this theory. My team and my Managers are based in Prague. Before I started my internship, I thought that focusing and contacting with them would be tough. However, my manager came to Istanbul during our first week to help us settle in to Oracle.

On our first day, he explained the organization structure and organized training for us to learn Technology products such as Oracle DB, FWM and BI. One full week of training passed. At the end of week we were informed of which district we will be responsible for. I am responsible for the European region; Automotive, Manufacturing, Textile, Retail and Chemical sectors. One of our key responsibilities includes speaking with the customer and identifying their IT needs...

The Day Oracle Happened by Juanita!!

Having special interest in database management and data integrations, ORACLE was the core company that I had always dreamt of. When I got to know that ORACLE was visiting our campus for recruitment I knew this was my chance.

The first round was an online aptitude test and I was eagerly waiting for the results which were out after four days. I was thrilled to see my name in the top 66. The competition now was going to be tough and I started preparing earnestly. The next day morning along with the selected students I attended the pre placement talk which was motivating and we were given a brief insight about ORACLE.

All of us were then divided into batches and called for interviews accordingly. Handling nervousness and pressure, I was anxiously waiting for my turn. My interview was at 6 in the evening. I managed to keep a smile and give my best. The questions were mostly based on cloud computing which is my favorite subject and elective. I was asked a puzzle, based on logical reasoning for which I was able give a good answer. At the end of the first technical round all I wanted was to see my name in the the 30 short listed names. I was on my way home when I got a call from my best friend saying I had made it to the second technical round. It was indeed a step closer to my dream.

The interviews were scheduled at 9 the next morning and all of us were ready in the waiting room.Tension and anxiety clearly reflected in everyone’s face. I was asked questions based on my major project and I answered well. More puzzles based on clocks and logical reasoning followed. I was asked about my dreams and ambitions. I knew that I had given my best. I was called to the HR round next which turned out to be a friendly interview. I was asked about my family, my hobbies and my interest in databases.

It was 3 in the afternoon when the interviews were done and I was sitting with the other candidates. With fingers crossed I prayed that my name be called. “Juanita Mendonca!”. And there it was! I was finally an ORACLEite!!!

I was still trying to sink in the feeling that my dream had indeed come true!!! My joy knew no bounds. Truly it was an amazing experience.

My parents were proud, loads of happiness and well wishes from family and friends flowed in.

Proud to be an ORACLEite!!!
