On the 5th of November this year, Oracle Graduate
Recruitment invited students from the Berlin/Potsdam area to our Customer Visit
Centre in the city centre of Berlin.
We discussed current IT trends – Globalization, Data
Explosion, Rise of Mobility, Social is Business, – to show students and
graduates what kind of challenges and big opportunities we’re facing at the
moment and at the same time what they would face when joining Oracle.
We also gave them an insight into our Sales organization. We
showed them negotiation techniques and the different personality types you
might be in contact with when working in Sales – or any other line of business
We then opened the floor to questions about current job
openings, how #lifeatOracle works and their career planning in general.
And what did the attendees think?
Lutz Welpelo: ‘It was a really good event – taking place in
a perfect location. I liked the relaxed atmosphere, not the typical reserved
one I’ve been expecting. Altogether, it was well structured, interactive and
Benjamin Hoffmann: ‘I really liked the event – the topics
mentioned were interesting and made a positive impact on my impression of
Oracle. I got the chance to speak to two members of the Sales organization
which confirmed my intention to apply for a job at Oracle. For me, it has been
a successful event – no questions remained unanswered.’
