"...This is my future" by Shaikha Al Shehhi

My name is Shaikha and I am an Oracle intern. I am based in United Arab Emirate in the Abu Dhabi Office. I work with the Technology team and my focus will be in Database.

When I was presented with the opportunity to join Oracle, I told myself this is my future. It is my dream to join one of the biggest companies over the world. Although 6 months may be a short period of time, I will utilize this period in the best of my ability and gain as much knowledge as I can from fellow oracle employees.

Before I began my internship in Oracle I worried about many things. One thing is how I will treat many people from different countries there? And will they be cooperative with me or not?

"Work hard, play hard" by Anil Kara

It was a new beginning in my life. Hence, it gave me a tremendous feeling of excitement to jump into a new kind of atmosphere, to meet new people and to gain new experiences. It was a similar feeling as if it were the beginning of University. However, Oracle provides a great working environment where I can feel absolutely free and so I felt like a member of the family straight away. Having such talented and kind colleagues always gives me the courage and opportunity to learn new skills, to break limits and to discover my full potential. When I came to the office on the first day, the office felt like home...

Eren's 158th day in Oracle!

Written by Eren Akbaba

Today is my 158th day in Oracle. And I want to build my future in Oracle to 15,800 days. You know why? Because since the start of my internship, I am learning skills which I cannot learn in school. In my first week I met my team, who I knew from my summer internship in 2013, and I made myself a plan which was very useful for my development in Oracle. I started to work on some database issues, took notes about them and made demos of them. After I learned them, I started to prepare presentations about them. Now I have my own presentation about all database issues in Oracle 12c, and I am ready to present them to customers. With this, my mentor and director who are very helpful in my development support me and this gives me self-motivation and self-confidence. I presented to our customers; I went to field and developed myself with my mentor etc. In conclusion my work development is on the right track...

My BDC Intern Experience at Oracle by Zeynep

Hi Everyone,

My name is Zeynep. I am a Business Development Consultant (BDC) intern based in Istanbul. As everyone says, first impressions are very important. I am also a firm believer of this theory. My team and my Managers are based in Prague. Before I started my internship, I thought that focusing and contacting with them would be tough. However, my manager came to Istanbul during our first week to help us settle in to Oracle.

On our first day, he explained the organization structure and organized training for us to learn Technology products such as Oracle DB, FWM and BI. One full week of training passed. At the end of week we were informed of which district we will be responsible for. I am responsible for the European region; Automotive, Manufacturing, Textile, Retail and Chemical sectors. One of our key responsibilities includes speaking with the customer and identifying their IT needs...

Made in Germany @ Oracle

Hi, Moin Moin

My Name is Neele, originally German and now living in Ireland. I have been working as a Business Development Representative for Oracle in Dublin since November 2010. After graduating from my Business School in Southern Germany (DHBW Ravensburg) I was working at Lidl for about a year until Oracle came into my life. Oracle contacted me and offered me an amazing start to my career. As I studied International Business, my dream was to work abroad. The opportunity with Oracle included the chance to work abroad in an international surrounding with getting to know people from all different countries of Europe. – My Dream!

This multicultural environment is unique in Europe. I am working directly with colleagues from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Great Britain, Portugal and many other European countries in ONE single team.

So far I have gotten to know nearly every language in Europe and try to adopt some words for myself.

Oracle gives you the chance to develop your own career in an international environment. It´s a multicultural organization and offers you the ability to learn global business processes. Nowhere else can you gain this much knowledge that you can promote into the next role within one year.

My job is focused on generating demand for Oracle products and finding new business opportunities over the phone. I have established a close relationship with Sales People all over Europe, but in particular, those based in Germany and Switzerland. Within a few short months I have acquired a professional knowledge of the whole IT Sector. At Oracle, I constantly receive relevant training on a weekly basis to enhance my skill-set. I am constantly supported by management and my personal mentor. I attend regular on-to-one sessions with my manager to review my career development plan.

The most amazing thing I am experiencing is my growing self-confidence and professionalism when speaking with customers. From having CEO’s on the phone, to having meetings with 15 different nationalities, to familiarizing with living in Ireland… it’s something that you will never experience in Germany.

Dublin

Dublin as a place to life is also important to mention: Dublin has its own character. A city with most of the inhabitants between 20 and 40 offers a lot of activities for young professionals. The city is modern, vibrant and has a whole lot of contrasts.

You can decide between anything from water sports, chill at the beach, go cycling, or indoor sports, or hang out with some friends in Temple Bar and still I haven´t mentioned all of activities Dublin has to offer. Also there is a big cultural and musical scene here in Dublin.

If I am speaking for myself: I am a member of around 10 people from Oracle who plan to go on trips once a month or go to pubs and movies all together. Just last month we have been to Northern Ireland for a weekend.

Those groups emerge during every foundation training all New Starters get here. It is a training course for getting the start up knowledge for Oracle.

All in all working here in Dublin for Oracle with all the different possibilities for personal career development is an added value to a career path for business graduates and a perfect opportunity to get to know an international global player and its cultures.

I am looking forward to seeing you here on board.
