Meet Oracle Interns: Robert, Sales Intern in Poland
By Maria Sandu on Apr 17, 2013
Hi, my name is Robert! I recently joined the Sales Consulting team at Oracle Poland to be their new consultant on Big Data and Oracle Big Data Appliance. I’m still an undergraduate student at Warsaw School of Economics where I study Quantitative Methods in Economics and Information Systems but my young age wasn’t a problem for Oracle to give me a chance to work on one of its most promising innovations.
It’s especially fascinating for me as the subject of Big Data is amazingly thrilling. Processing Big Data (vast amounts of unstructured data such as blog entries, sensor information, tweets or pictures from the Internet) opens many new ways for enterprises to derive great value and make better decisions. As a technology enthusiast and a business school student it has always been my dream to be apart of such innovations, and that’s why I applied for the internship program here at Oracle. I’m sure it was a perfect decision.
During my first few days at Oracle I’ve met amazing and very kind people and I’ve seen how the atmosphere here boosts creativity and gives chances for people who really want to make a difference. Currently I am spending most of my time learning and gathering information about Big Data and Oracle products designed for it. I am also attending conferences and workshops to gain skills and knowledge which will for sure be of great value for me and Oracle in the future.
Working as an intern at Oracle gives me a lot of satisfaction and I’m sure it’s an amazing experience for all creative, passionate and ambitious students around the world. Despite being innovative and passionate about technology, there are also some other competencies such as being a good communicator and having good organizational skills which could be beneficial for potential interns at Oracle.
If you want to maximize your chances of starting your career at Oracle these are certainly areas you should work on. It’s best for students to gain experience in student organizations, such as Erasmus Student Network, AIESEC or CEMS, work with people on serious projects and not only gain experience but also build a network of colleagues and friends. While studying at your university it is also good for you to find an area you really like and do as much as possible to broaden your knowledge in that field. I’m sure that people with interests and a serious motivation to learn are more valuable than anyone who studies hard just to get a good job.
