Sales Event in Deauville
By Adriana Noailles on May 06, 2013
"I had the opportunity to attend this Concours de Negociation in Deauville in 2013 and have to say that this event was a great experience.
We had the chance to present ORACLE to a large group of graduates from prestigious schools motivated to work for ORACLE and we realize that a large group of students were interested in pursuing a career in sales in IT.
The second day was dedicated to the sales simulations where 22 candidates demonstrated their sales skills and we finally found 7 outstanding candidates.
This event is probably the most interesting recruitment event as we have the ability to evaluate candidates though a sales role play before we even receive their resume so we know that we can target the right candidate. I would gladly attend to this event next year” Sebastien, Business Development Manager France Tech and hardware, Dublin
"As a BDC and as a young professional, this event was a very unique experience. For the first time, I had the opportunity to join an interview from the employers perspective. That gave me the opportunity to meet trade school and university students. Among them we met some very talented and passionate characters. It was a pleasure to tell them about Oracle and the career opportunities they can explore at Oracle. As a challenge I believe it gives the chance to test the negotiation skills and that allows students to see if they are really made for a commercial career. In addition, the frame of the event was magnificent and the organization was spot on. I will happily come back if I am asked to do so." Antonin, Business Development Consultant, hardware France, Dublin
"As recruiter we have the opportunity, during this event, to meet really motivated and good candidates. They have two days to meet us and to show their motivation but more than everything their skills to negotiate just like in reality. It is a special environment which permits to share more than one hour for an interview, but really about future, projects, etc. I think it is a really good way to find high potential for a company because all students are preselected by schools to participate to the negotiation." Léna, Graduate Recruiter, Colombes.
"I have been participating to the Sales Award in Deauville for the third year and keep on being amazed by the level of the candidates we have the chance to meet. This competition is a fantastic opportunity as a Manager to share our experience, present the great career opportunities Oracle has to offer and find potential top talents. I feel energized every single time by the level of motivation and drive of all candidates over these very intensive 2 days." Pascaline Albin, Solution Response Manager.
