Intern's Diary: Arnold, Intern @South Africa
By Maria Sandu on Aug 27, 2013
We have asked our Interns that are part of the Sales and Presales Programme currently running across Eastern Central Europe, Middle East and Africa to share with us their thoughts around the major lessons and challenges at Oracle. We'll be posting a series of articles that will give you an insight into their experience with working for one of the biggest companies in the world.
Arnold is one of the Sales Interns in South Africa and has been with Oracle for almost 6 months now. Here's what he confessed for our "Intern's Diary" series.
"I have learned that being in a corporate environment requires a person to be on time for work every day and you don’t wait to be told what to do, and always make means to add value to your team.
- Being disciplined is essential for your success, as now i had to learn to change my university mentality and put my knowledge to good use and learn from my mentors.
- Confidence – In a sales environment confidence is essential, as you would have to believe in the product that you’re selling and demonstrate how the product will add value to a customer."
Stay tuned for more confessions from our ECEMEA Interns!
