" Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me...."-Steve Jobs” .
I remember the day I started my Engineering, like everyone, I too dreamed to get placed in one of the top companies. Now at this point of time I thank God Almighty, all the crew members of SCT, my family, friends, Jesus Youth Family & everyone who helped me achieving this.
I cleared my interview and landed in my dream company and was all set to explore corporate life. As exciting as this opportunity was, it made me extremely anxious having heard my seniors experience tight schedules and intense stress. Moreover I was to switch over to becoming a software / programming geek from a Mechanical engineer.
On 13th January 2014, as a pleasant surprise I became a member of ORACLE family, the company that moves world with Java in everything. From the very 1st day, I began to experience the real beauty of Oracle life. Now completing almost two months here with amazing work culture and friendly colleagues each day is unforgettable.
With numerous plans of spending first salary, we ended up doing something new & different; we decided to spend a day with Specially challenged children. We, the PrimeSourcing and Flexcube batches, headed to MarThoma Opportunity School ,an institution focused on supporting the education of the mentally and physically challenged on February 1st and we enjoyed the act of giving and receiving.
Our small efforts fetched personal appreciation of our CEO & many other top officials which really surprised us. Our company, with the support of the CEO donated 1 Lac under the corporate citizenship program for the cause of child welfare & we were given charge to take care of it.
As a fresher and being a fan of Steve Jobs, I really feel proud of working with my team who made this happened and now Oracle family has extended their arms to support our vision to help the society.
When I came to the Oracle Family my knowledge towards the technical was not as good as my team members. The amount of support given to me by my family and my team changed me to a qualified computer guy from a mechanical guy.
Oracle is a place where we get a lot of opportunities in various fields. I strongly believe that my dream company will make our dream come true.Oracle is a career path gate way for any fresher’s / anyone who chose to join my Oracle family .
