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?

My name is Khawla Albelooshi, and I work as part of the EPM team. I started working at Oracle on the 15th of November 2014. Like any fresh graduate, I was so confused about my first job experience.

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...[Read More]

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...[Read More]

Talent Acquisition at Oracle by Isaac Costa
Although recruitment is the same as talent acquisition, there are connotations to the latter concept. We refer to talent acquisition when it is not only to carry out a simply hiring process, when the process is focused on acquiring assets. In actual organizations Human Capital is considered the most integral part for the development of the organization. That is why recruitment plays such an important role in successful organizations such as Oracle. We do not think of recruitment as a process of filling open positions anymore, it is an entirely tactical process. Strategic talent acquisition is a long term view of filling open positions not only today but also using the candidates that come out of a recruiting campaign.
At Oracle, we approach candidates strategically, in a way that it is not enough to ask if they are qualified according to the requirements or whether are they interested in the position or not. It is more a process of taking into account the career aspirations and expectations of the candidate. We attempt to involve the candidates in a conversation that encourages building relationships in which the potential fit of the candidate is carefully analyzed not only for a certain position, but also to become candidates in future recruitment processes.[Read More]

The aim of the call was to share our experiences at Oracle so far, exchange ideas in relation to succeeding in Oracle as an intern and to give us a chance to get to know each other - despite our geographical differences.

We at Oracle South Africa couldn’t express what a pleasure it was to host the Open Day for the 2015 Graduate Programme. We hope this day inspired all future candidates that will soon have the opportunity to join the red team!
The open day took place on the 9th of October 2014 and although we were excited to meet the prospective candidates, there was no telling how the day would go. The day began with a few blank stares, some chatter about which universities they were enrolled in, obviously some friendly rivalry about which school was the best and some debate on why anyone would willing choose to study Applied Mathematics.[Read More]

Before the interviews begun, all my friends were nervous, studying so many thick books, discussing all topics, preparing for the interview, checking files, resumes, dresses etc.., But my story was different, I was not at all nervous, wearing a simple white shirt and my dad's pants and shoes ,I was looking at my friends and I felt very lonely. People say that books are our best friends so I searched for books in my bag, but to my surprise there were no books! Just a file with certificates.
I recalled what I studied, I started with my nursery classes, A for Apple, B for Ball... upto Z, later few rhymes. Still I was getting bored so started playing games in my mobile phone. Then I was called in for the interview, I went there with full confidence because I knew that I can answer any question from my field which is electronics and I also knew that people will ask me C++,#,JAVA etc which I had no idea about.
But they asked me about my favourite projects and subjects like Microcontrollers, Power electronics, Circuits and even Electrical Machine Design, I enjoyed answering their questions. I liked the way they respected my field and my knowledge. And most important is the second technical interview where he clearly told me to choose one,either my core company or Oracle...[Read More]

A rejuvenating experience, the interview with the Oracle team in NMAMIT, Nitte brought out the best in me. The interviewers were warm and open thus instilling a sense of confidence to give my best shot at the technical and HR interviews.
The technical interview I faced on day1 enabled me to present a clear view about myself, my projects and my capabilities to the interviewer. I answered all queries and questions put forward to me holistically and every word of mine was keenly perceived which I loved the most. On day2 I had a clear picture about my role and responsibilities at Oracle. The HR interview was a part of my life that will remain in my sweet memories forever. I will always remember speaking and singing through my first ever HR interview.
If I have to sum it all up in a phrase I would say it was a “One of a Kind” experience I had. Thank you for giving me a chance to put my best foot forward.[Read More]

It all started in the first year of my engineering, some of our seniors got placed in Oracle. I heard it is a good company, then did some research on net, by which I came to know that it was one of the best companies in the world. Since then it was my dream to be placed in Oracle, which came true on 19th Sep 2014.The placement process consisted of an online test, on clearing which two technical interviews and an HR interview.
On 13th September was the initial online test .Interviews were supposed to be on 18th and 19th.I went for the online test praying all gods to help me pass the test. I was cool did not have any nervousness since it was just an online test, I wrote the test, now comes the critical part i.e. wait for the results. After a long wait on 17th morning 11.00 am they announced the results and there it was my name in the cleared category. I was so happy and at the same time started getting nervous. The next day was the interview, I was nerevous, I wanted to get in to my dream company ORACLE and I couldn’t let it go!! I bunked the noon classes went home and started preparing for the interview, went through all my projects, all the subjects I had and did some meditation to control my nervousness.
Finally the next day 18th September, I’m all dressed up and ready for the interview. We assembled at our auditorium and there came the Oracle recruitment team. The four panelists and a HR. They start the pre-placement talk and I listened to them very keenly, and after that they announced the batches according to which interview would take place and yeah I was in the first batch. I could hear my heart beat and was very anxious. . The interview went well starting with the introduction, questions on my projects, I was comfortable answering the questions, hoping to clear this round. Results of this round were put up in the late evening and I had cleared it!!...

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...
