Excitement of becoming an ORACLEite by Ashwini Shanbogue

Guest Author

It all started in the first year of my engineering, some of
our seniors got placed in Oracle. I heard it is a good company, then did some
research on net, by which I came to know that it was one of the best companies
in the world. Since then it was my dream to be placed in Oracle, which came
true on 19th Sep 2014.The placement process consisted of an online test,
on clearing which two technical interviews and an HR interview.

On 13th September was the initial online test .Interviews
were supposed to be on 18th and 19th.I went for the
online test praying all gods to help me pass the test. I was cool did not
have any nervousness since it was just an online test, I wrote the test, now
comes the critical part i.e. wait for the results. After a long wait on 17th
morning 11.00 am they announced the results and there it was my name in the cleared
category. I was so happy and at the same time started getting nervous. The next day was the interview, I was nerevous, I wanted to get in to
my dream company ORACLE and I couldn’t let it go!! I bunked the noon classes
went home and started preparing for the interview, went through all my
projects, all the subjects I had and did some meditation to control my

Finally the next day 18th September, I’m all
dressed up and ready for the interview. We assembled at our auditorium and
there came the Oracle recruitment team. The four panelists and a HR. They
start the pre-placement talk and I listened to them very keenly, and after
that they announced the batches according to which interview would take place and yeah I
was in the first batch. I could hear my heart beat and was very
anxious. . The interview went well
starting with the introduction, questions on my projects, I was comfortable
answering the questions, hoping to clear this round. Results of this round were
put up in the late evening and I had cleared it!!

Now comes the D-day, the next day we had to appear at 9.00am
sharp at the placement hall and the best part is Oracle people are always on
time!!They started the interview, I was called first today it was more of a
deep technical interview, It was a little stressful for me because I was the
first one for the interview. But I managed to handle it well, and then I was
sent for HR round. HR round was more of a yes/no, where the HR asked me if I’m
fine with relocation, night shifts and working on weekends. She gave me an
insight of working in Oracle and I was very happy.

Then came the result time. After all the interviews were
done the Oracle recruitment team gave us our feedback and started calling out names,
and yes there I am, an ORACLEite!!I was so happy, my dream had come true!!I
couldn’t stop my tears, I was overwhelmed by the great news and was very happy
because my best buddy also got through!!And here we are placed in ORACLE!!

Proud to be an ORACLEite!!
