Meet our Interns: Darlington, Technology Sales Intern
By Maria Sandu on Jul 12, 2013
For this week, we have interviewed one of our interns in Nigeria about his first number of weeks at Oracle and how students can maximize their chances of being hired into a position in our company.
Hi everybody! My name is Darlington, I’m an intern here in Oracle Nigeria and my current role is as a Sales Intern in the Technology General Business sector. I went to St. Murumba College School and I completed my CCNA in 2005. I was then admitted into the University of Jos where I studied Computer Science and graduated in 2010.
My first week in Oracle was really awesome; it wasn’t what I really expected because the staff here were so friendly and open to always offer assistance to someone who needed help. I officially started work the week that Oracle Nigeria where holding their team building events and I really had a great time being around for this.
I actually thought the staff in Oracle Nigeria will be very strict but the truth of the matter is, they were so open to hearing my questions and always there to help me through some of the tasks I didn’t understand. There are true mentors here and I am glad to be in this team.
For students to maximize their chances of getting an
internship here in Oracle, my advice to them is that they should always
research the website oracle.com/careers and register on the student/graduate
section. They can also subscribe to the
various newsletters which will fill them in on all of the events etc., which
are happening in the company.
If students are active on Social Media, they can also follow
