New beginnings with Oracle Campus Recruiter Phillip Yi
By Maria Sandu on May 01, 2013
As I sit here on level 7, Tower B at Oracle’s Australian headquarters in North Ryde, I reflect on the journey that has been the past 10 months since joining Oracle. To me Oracle did have its familiarity – coming from an IT Recruitment background I would meet candidates that specialised in technologies like Primavera, Hyperion, Java, MYSQL, JD Edwards, Sun, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Taleo.. Little did I know that I would one day work for the IT conglomerate that would own them all.
Who is Oracle? ‘A database company’ – as I’ve heard it many times before. But Oracle is so much more than just a Database company. Oracle is truly a leader in IT innovation – hardware and software, engineered to work together. Reducing the complexity, simplifying IT. Over 9,000 products, with over 2,000 patents. 32,000 developers, running over 300,000+ test scripts nightly. 6,500 customer-driven enhancements yearly. 1 million+ students supported and over 20,000 implementation consultants. Not to mention being ranked #1 in 40 product or product and industry categories with over 380,000 customers in 145 countries and over 100,000+ employees.
10 months later, I’m truly understanding the sheer size of Oracle. From Licensing & Consulting, Global Business Units to Product development – the opportunities are endless. How exciting must that be for a student looking for their first job – to be part of a company that is at the leading edge of technology. Where else better to start off your career then Oracle? Of course as the Campus Recruiter for Oracle covering ANZ, ASEAN and Korea I have to be a little biased. Having just run the Graduate interview days for Sydney and Melbourne, I saw a lot of scared but excited faces full of potential. It was an absolute pleasure to have met all these young, bright faced, intelligent individuals and looking very much forward to meeting all the Oracle Grads in Jakarta, Malaysia, Singapore and Seoul.
With so much to offer, why wouldn’t you choose Oracle?
