Do you know how many people work within Oracle? More than 100.000! It’s quite a huge company and being an Intern among all these people might seem a small thing. I would say that it’s a great opportunity to learn, experience new and important things for your development. When you are part of a corporation you want to give your best and let them see you want to stay even after your internship ends. Do you agree with me?
My name is Andreea and I am an Intern within the Oracle SSC Admin Team. When I joined the company, the corporate environment had a great impact on me as I didn’t know what to expect of this experience. I was suddenly part of a professional team, learning, working and willing to prove they made the right choice. There are 6 other interns that started at the same time as I did, which made the situation more comfortable for me. If you think of yourself, what would you do if you were an Intern? You would probably do the same as us. We’ve tried to do our best in learning and assimilating as much as we could from this new experience.
Working in a big team brings many good things, such as improving your soft skills, receiving support in your daily activity or making new friends. All these aspects make the experience absolutely worthy. I never thought before I would find myself going to work this enthusiastic! I wake up every day willing to go to work where I find people of my age, where I find a great environment for both professional and personal development. This team spirit amazed me from the first day and it’s still a big motivational aspect for me. One other great thing is the opportunity of working with many different nationalities. It is said that every culture is different, but when you are actually interacting with a lot of people from all over the globe every day, you realize that the language boundaries are insignificant. You can always find a common ground even though you’re working with people from all over EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Overall, there are some tips and tricks I’ve learned for getting the most from an internship:
I think I could summarize my experience what I’ve experienced within Oracle so far in two words: professionalism and dedication. I am planning to enjoy my work here as much as I can!
