From An Oracle Graduate Trainee !!!
By Nadiya on Jan 03, 2014
As a finance majored student, in the past few years, I knew little information about the IT industry. For me Oracle only means a NASDAQ listed company with reasonable revenue and share price, maybe also with an excellent gain potential. When I was a member of Oracle for only few weeks I got the whole picture and that is not only what professionalism means by but also orientation, responsibility, attitude, competency,love and enthusiasm. It is not only a work or a task but also a kind of lifestyle. After four weeks training I cannot express that I am really an Oracler but I have to say that I am ready to start forming myself a qualified Oracle employee. What I got here cannot be measured by welfare or financial benefits. It is about my life and my spirit. If I am looking for a job providing comfortable life, actually Oracle could not be a good choice. Fortunately, I am seeking for something which could make me smart and professional, so Oracle fit me better than any others. Although I am still a beginner in Oracle, I am looking forward to see what I could be five years later.
Be Smart, be Oracle
The first step is as good as half over...
It’s been 4 months since I have become an employee of Oracle. When I recalled my time in school, I feel lucky to have the chance to start my career in such a successful company. Before I join I didn’t know Oracle’s culture, I didn’t know why it became successful. Now I want to share some information I learned in last month.
Self Service - Oracle encourage self service. You can find everything you need at Oracle’s intranet. This has largely reduced the time consumed in communicating with different departments, especially in such a big organization like Oracle. For me, I can find lots of study materials like pdf, ppt, doc files or even demos on company’s internal website. As long as you want to learn, Oracle will provide the same resources no matter you are fresh man or experienced worker.
Knowledge - Everyone in Oracle is an expert in some area. Just like my manager said, “there are many people who are familiar with Oracle’s products outside Oracle, so theoretically speaking, there won’t be An ’easy’ questions delivered to our company”. This is a good chance for someone who just graduated from university, learn from the experienced colleagues and grow faster.
Self Motivation - Oracle has a nice and free working atmosphere, but it’s not a non-profitable organization after all. Result driven and achievements are in Oracle’s culture. You should show your value to the company and develop you potential fast enough in order to keep up the fast expansion. In Oracle, you are not just competing with the people in this city or even this country, instead, you are competing with the best people all over the world.
Join Oracle and you will
definitely not regret
