From College to Corporation - First Steps at Oracle Sales Academy

College is considered by most to be the best years of their lives.

When one looks at college, what does s/he recall? Alumni often reminisce about friends and fellow students as well as a few impactful classes and organizations to which they were overly dedicated. I personally wasn’t ready to leave college. My Fourth Year was by far my favorite and sadly that bittersweet graduation day loomed large. Fortunately, before I left the cocoon in Charlottesville, I received an offer from Oracle which on paper appeared to have everything I could want from an employer.

Attention: Talent in France!

Sales AwardFor the past 6 years, Oracle has attended one of the most prestigious Students events in France, the Concours de Negociation organised by the EM Normandie and gathering sales and marketing students from several Grandes Ecoles and Universites in France. For the past 6 years, we have hired top talent from this highly rated event.

As we in France enjoy food, let me give you the recipe a successful Sales competition:

  • Select 20 top students, highly ambitious and willing to prove to Oracle Senior Managers that they have a high level of understanding complex needs of a customer and deal with customers in the most professional and sales-y manner
  • Invite Directors, Managers and Oracle colleagues to the beautiful sea-side Deauville to meet with the above mentioned students
  • 2 days of presentations, meetings, a glamorous Gala dinner and 20 sales simulations – a fairly busy agenda, which gives students the full opportunity to understand the superb careers Oracle offer to graduates
  • Offer a trip to our winner (this year we offered a trip to Greece) and dinner vouchers in a castle as 2nd and 3rd prizes
  • … And the result is: the best students will get an offer to join the excitement of working in Oracle! Oracle offers internships and permanent positions in its Oracle Direct teams (Sales Teams) in the vibrant cities of Dublin and Malaga.

You will work with French customers but will fully enjoy our European Centre’s facilities with second to none training and a taste of Erasmus atmosphere – 17 nationalities working together.
