It’s our 6 week anniversary tomorrow. And by anniversary I
mean Oracle & I have been in a committed relationship for 6 blissful weeks.
Like most new-age relationships, we met online. Through LinkedIn as it happens.
Oracle’s advert was looking for someone to support them through what can
sometimes be described as a long and complex process called Graduate
Our first encounter was quite a blur; there was a mass
mixture of emotions – nerves, excitement and anticipation. Our day was spent
getting to know each other, meeting friends, and learning about Oracle as a
person. We had a dinner party in the canteen of P5 where we ate glorious food
from a buffet and drank free cappuccinos.
As our relationship has progressed, we are both becoming
more comfortable with each other. I spend the majority of my time assisting
with the interview process, assisting to source candidates and keeping track of
their progression through the process. Oracle’s role is to maintain these
suitable candidates and nurture them with training and employee development –
therefore, our relationship is quite harmonious.
Time really does fly when you’re having fun and as our
relationship continues to grow and develop, I can only hope that one day in the
future I will become a more permanent fixture in Oracle’s life. But in the
meantime, I will just have to keep my head in the cloud.
