IIT Bombay Preplacement talk by Ankit and Megha

Students in India who are now in their final year of studies have so much to look forward to. Not only must they focus on their studies but their thoughts also lean towards the beginning of their careers. Once students finish their degrees they start work and companies who are hiring are visiting colleges to select students to join them. This can be a stressful period for students as they must decide which company to begin their career with. In this regard, a pre placement talk by a company would be the one way for students to get a clear idea of what the company has in offer for the students, the different job profiles, the location of their job posting etc.. It is an opportunity for both the company and students to interact with each other.

 Oracle took the opportunity to visit IIT Bombay and help educate students about what a career at Oracle may be like for them. Our recent Pre Placement Talk was well received by the students as they sat glued to their seats with their eyes wide open as Ankit Garg, an alumni of IIT Bombay who is a Senior Software Development Director at Oracle spoke to the students. Ankit helped explain what a career here at Oracle would be like, from the technical aspects of the roles we have to the fun activities we promote as well...

Oracle & I - Graduate Recruitment Intern Diary

Our Love Story

It’s our 6 week anniversary tomorrow. And by anniversary I mean Oracle & I have been in a committed relationship for 6 blissful weeks. Like most new-age relationships, we met online. Through LinkedIn as it happens. Oracle’s advert was looking for someone to support them through what can sometimes be described as a long and complex process called Graduate Recruitment.

Our first encounter was quite a blur; there was a mass mixture of emotions – nerves, excitement and anticipation. Our day was spent getting to know each other, meeting friends, and learning about Oracle as a person. We had a dinner party in the canteen of P5 where we ate glorious food from a buffet and drank free cappuccinos...

Confessions of an Oracle CX Technical Consultant

Hi! My Name is Maria and I am a Customer Experience (CX) Sales Consultant at Oracle UK based in London, one of the most vibrant, energetic and coolest cities in Europe. My journey here has been fun, interesting and full of new experiences.

It’s not unusual to have a recent University grad not know what they want to do right after college and of course that is exactly what happened to me. But let me tell you a secret: you don’t have to! It’s your attitude that really matters. What do you do when have new opportunities in front of you? Do you ignore and walk away from them or do you accept them and welcome change? Like Paulo Coelho would say “The boat is safer anchored at the port; but that’s not the aim of boats” (The Pilgrimage).

I will let you know a bit about myself and my background, so you can understand how I’ve come to be where I am at today. I was born in the US from Spanish parents and grew up between Spain and the US...

Individuality VS Collaboration By Phillip

The past month – lots of sleepless nights, national pride, arguments with friends and fans, constant questioning of referee’s decisions and ability of coaches, blaming players and lack of team chemistry. And of course mistaking anger, poor decisions and moments of insanity to passion for football. Yes, the World Cup – an event that stops the world, brings nations together – the world stage to showcase some of the worlds top talent, putting football clubs across the world into a bidding and recruiting frenzy to secure this talent.

Watching each match, whether in the group stages, knock out or finals we see individual brilliance from players that can steer a team to victory – or teams that have excellent team chemistry, working in unison to work towards the same goal and team glory.

So, from witnessing these matches can Campus Recruitment take a page from the World Cup? When targeting talent, are we looking for brilliant individual players that may or may not fit into the teams culture? Or are we looking for those team players that can work in unison with the rest of the team and work towards the same goals (figuratively of course)?...

My first weeks at Oracle by Keneiloe

Hi  everyone,

My name is Keneiloe a Graduate Recruitment Intern based in South Africa. My first weeks at Oracle have been mind blowing and exceptionally interesting. The first day was slow and really all about getting a feel for everything and getting to know everybody. The days following that I can really say I enjoyed as I am an individual that likes to get involved, learn new things and really immerse myself into something. I know my mentor saw this in me from the beginning and she really did nurture the urge I had to get involved.

I found that the environment was nothing close to what I expected. People were really friendly and yet very much focused on their own tasks and I established very quickly that this is how people worked in Oracle. You work interdependently and you can always ask and receive help when you need it. What fascinated me the most was discovering that the person your most likely getting help from wasn’t just down the hall or even in another province but from a different country and assisted you as though they were sitting right next to you.

In my second week at Oracle unfortunately my mentor was called out of office to attend to some personal matters. This was both a blessing and curse for me as we really did establish a solid working relationship she was able to trust me in handle matters while she was away, while also teaching me things I wouldn’t have learnt otherwise...[Read More]

Big Ideas Are Good, but Every Plan Needs Building Blocks by David Talamelli

A few years ago I attended a training course which was designed to help participants understand how they think and behave to help them make better decisions both individually and as part of a team. In this training I completed an Emergenetics Profile which helps you understand the way you think. There are 4 Distinct Categories which are Analytical, Structural, Social and Conceptual which are fairly self explanatory. The training was really insightful and helped me better understand the way I tend to approach situations and also better understand how others approach situations as well...

Best Ways To Excel In Internships By Karthik

Arrive on time. This is such a minor thing, that I'm sure you've labeled it with 'work hard' and 'be proactive' but seriously, when you arrive on time it does so much for your reputation and even just being late a few times can hurt your reputation. Also due to the fact that as an intern, you may be in the situation where your supervisor checks in with you in the morning and then leaves you to a project (while they do their own job) and checks back in with you later in the day. So they're looking for you first thing, and if you're late, you're actually keeping them from their own work. 

Ask for help, but problem solve first. In your first few weeks, of course you're going to ask for a lot-where's the color printer? How do I access this information? However, once you get into the work, the interns that really make an impact, find a problem, and attempt to solve it before they go for help. "I couldn't update this data, I tried using the online portal, but it gave me an error, do you know what I should do?"

All work is needed. The downside of internships, is that sometimes you end up doing the work that nobody wants to do. Presenting to 100 people, and somebody needs to collate the print outs? Yes, that's boring and you're overqualified for it, but your boss will never ask you to do something that isn't needed. The interns that normally get full time offers, it's usually about 50% doing their job, but also about not complaining when they got the short end of the stick. It doesn't matter how you get through it-whether it's getting zen and completing each task to the best of your ability, or it's making a game out of how fast you can photocopy, you want to smile and get the work done...
