Teamwork: The keyword for a success story
By Tim Koekkoek on Dec 28, 2011
Teamwork ¦ Collaboration ¦ Enthusiasm ¦ Optimism ¦ Strong will ¦ Support ¦ Great communication ¦
These words are the foundation of our story. We believe our story shows what teamwork really is about and it is also a great story about what graduates can truly achieve within a big company like Oracle. Everything started in January 2010 when we, Alina and Roxana, became interns in the Oracle On Demand Center. We were very enthusiastic about working for such a big company and also very willing to learn new things. Oracle On Demand is a strategic partner to our customers, that manages their IT infrastructure and runs their business applications. The best part was that we were fully involved in this activity, we learned the specific procedures, we created complex reports for customers and attended trainings and meetings. By June 2010, thanks to the intensive work, we learned about most of the processes used in our department. Therefore, after only 6 months of internship we became permanent employees.If you think that this is the best part, read the rest of our story!
In August 2010 our managers decided that a new team will be founded
within our department: the Service Monitoring Team. Its members
would be in charge with OSMR checks, customer reports and services
maintenance. The great news was that we, Alina and Roxana, were promoted
to Operation Managers within this team, and Emil became our team
leader. This was even a greater challenge than at the very beginning as
interns. Communication, optimism and team spirit, these were our
ingredients for success and for doing a great job. We had new
responsibilities and very high expectations. We wanted to prove that
our managers had made the right choice!
They certainly had and our results were so good that we had a new member joining our team in February, Victorela. She mentioned that it wasn’t very difficult for her to adapt to the work environment here, as she found herself a team willing to offer her support.
