Intern Life @ Oracle: Linda - PreSales Intern

Hi Potential Oracle Interns,

I am Linda Mathumba, an Oracle 2012 Intern from South Africa. Joining the big red team (Oracle) has been a phenomenal experience for me from day one!

As a graduate from the University of Johannesburg, I have an Honors degree in Taxation and Accounting. As an intern, I joined the Presales Application Team with a focus on Supply Chain Management (SCM), as a Presales SCM Consultant. Although throughout varsity my focus was Accounting and Taxation, Oracle afforded me the opportunity to explore the exciting field of SCM. With a substantial amount of training, Oracle has invested toward the development of my SCM capabilities. This has put me ahead of other interns on the market by now having two specialties- Accounting and SCM.

First Innings: A Graduate's Reflection by Sanjay Kumar

Hello Everyone!

I am Sanjay, completed B. Tech from NITK Surathkal, and joined Oracle in June 2012 in the Oracle Fusion Development Team.

It was time to say good bye to the splendid years of college life and get ahead with a new journey. Yes, those were the feelings I had year ago. Leaving home with the pride of placements in hand and yet thoughts of what the nature of job would be and how I would fit

 On my first day at Oracle, there were new faces all around except for a couple of faces which definitely were from my college, but at the end of the day we all were as if we knew each other for a long time! Just a couple of sessions and I made a comfortable transition to corporate life. I always heard that there could be virtual managers as well and didn't expect I myself would get one. But in the past 10 months I realized that I have been guided closely with discussions almost at every doubt by virtual managers and virtual peers.

Does CS/IT Background Matter?

Some may feel that being from a CS/IT background gives an upper hand over technology, but every effort is made by the technical training provided which alleviates all such differences and there no longer remains any doubt.

Nature of Work?

After training, comes the time when I got to express myself at work. Some may prefer development to bug fixes, but as someone has remarkably said, bug fixes are one day series which give much more challenges and excitement as compared to development which turns out to be test matches. And yes, definitely solving bugs initially are the best way to get familiar with the domain. Even now I realize that what I have learnt is just a part and a lot of it still to go. Inside the assigned teams, internal sessions are conducted to help you to familiarize with each and every part of the product so that I can work on any part of it. Cooperation and help at every stage helped a lot. I always got time on the assigned work to explore, review and take the right approach.

Technology and its Relevance

With regards to the technology which I work with in Fusion Applications is ADF - Oracle Application Development Framework which is making its move towards the Cloud Environment, - a growing trend in recent years where one pays as per usage. The frameworks have been customized so that not much time has to be spent on the backend task and focus more on the development.


Enough of work, do we have time for fun? Yes, activities are held year round - be it cricket, basketball tournaments or social activities. One of the sessions as part of training, Go Plus was one of the best experiences and taught us a lot. In addition team outings and lunch are always welcomed.

At the end would say that the initial few months are in fact probably the best to learn and get familiar with the technology. With the developed potential and skill we can always keep our banners flying high.

Congratulations to the 2013 batch of hires and hope to see you all soon!
