Meet our Interns: Essam and Noel

Hi! My name is Essam and I am an intern in the Middleware Tech Pre-sales team. I graduated from the King Saud University in Saudi Arabia, Software Engineering Department. The first few weeks at Oracle were really good, I met a lot of new people and this helped me see that life as an employee is different from the university. I wasn’t expecting all employees and managers to be as helpful as they were. Even though they have their own work, responsibilities and deadlines to meet, they always stop to listen and help.
For students to maximize their chances of being accepted to an Oracle program, I think they should know more about the products and the core business of the company.

It also prepared me for the dynamics that comes with the corporate. My first few weeks at Oracle were spectacular, as much as I was eager to go to my line of business and start with on the job training; the Human Capital team had scheduled value adding courses that have prepared me for the journey that I am currently embarking on. environment, working in teams, personal finance and an overall view of Oracle Business.
To maximize your chances of getting an internship at Oracle, I’d advise that you focus on your grades and get involved in extracurricular activities. This is where you will learn key skills and traits in areas such as sociability and being a team player. I also recommend reading more, especially articles publications on your related industry aspirations, be it hardware, database or applications etc.
