Poof and it’s gone - Internship @ Oracle Netherlands

We still remember the first day we walked in the office in September. The moment we walked into the big entrance hall and saw all those unfamiliar faces, we had no idea that we all had such diverse personalities, and still we all had a great time together. At the end of our internship we could all say we felt comfortable working at the office, playing “some” table tennis. Besides, it has been a great learning experience and we look back on a good time. 

We made our own video and it shows you what some of us have been working on during our internship @ Oracle in the Netherlands. 

If you are also interested in Oracle and what we have to offer, you can join our Live Google+ Hangout every Friday at 3 p.m. or visit

Spotlight on an office - Malaga!

Hello all and thanks for taking the time to read this! First of all, I’d like to introduce myself, my name is Carlos Martín Martínez and I’m an Associate Sales Consultant in the EMEA Presales Center based in Málaga. This leads me to explain two things: what is the EMEA Presales Center or EPC and why there’s an office in Málaga.

The EPC is a virtual resource for EMEA’s Presales organizations to assist them with all the back-office and remote work a Sales Consultant normally does, like preparing demos, presentations and delivering webcasts, in order to let the more experienced Sales Consultant spend more time delivering demos and spending time at the customer’s site. It started some years ago in Bangalore and was called iTech back then, then it reached Bucharest with the name of Presales Center (PSC) to be in a better time zone for European organizations to be later renamed as what we know now as EPC and finally starting in Málaga in 2010 for an even more localized service.

Study and work or study to work?

Hi everyone,

My name is Sofia and I am currently working as an Analyst for the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), based in Bucharest, Romania. I would like to share my opinion on a topic that is always on the mind of young students: should we study and work or better study to work?

Whether it is a couple of weeks in Sales, a year in Contracts or just every Monday afternoon with a Consultant, any work experience you might gain is invaluable. First, it provides you with an insight in the areas you are studying about and give you a good idea of what you do and do not enjoy, even more, of what you are good at and at what you are not. This kind of experience is priceless when you start thinking about a long-term career path.

Secondly, it will make your CV stand out and give you an edge over other candidates, it will say something about your person. Being able to work during the studies does not only show that you have gained experience and a set of skills, it shows that you are willing to go the extra mile, are good at time management and are prepared to sacrifice a bit of your spare time in order to gain experience. No one said that this would be easy, but it is definitely worth it.
