World Class Work Environment at Oracle !!! By Manognya reddy

Why choose Oracle India as your first employer?

As a student pursuing engineering from a college of repute in India – you would sooner or later decide on which company you would like to work for. While there are Lakhs of students graduating each year and would love to work with Oracle, only a couple of thousands actually make it to the corridors of this awesome company in India!!

The environment that is uniquely Oracle by Phillip Yi

In the past month, I have been given the exclusive opportunity to hire a Legal graduate/intern for Oracle’s in-house Legal Counsel based here in North Ryde, Sydney.

Whilst talking to various applicants, I am asked the same, broad question – what are we looking for?

Time and time I have spoken about targeting the best, or targeting the best fit. I am an advocate of the latter, hence when approaching this question I answer very simply – ‘we are looking for the individual, that will fit into the culture and environment that is uniquely Oracle’.

So, what is the environment/culture like here at Oracle? What makes Oracle so unique and a great place to work, especially as a graduate?...

My first Career fair: Tips from a student to the students

My name is Audrey. I am studying at IPAG Business School – Paris – and joined Oracle UK in February 2011 – more specifically, I joined the EMEA Graduate's Recruitment Team (EMEA stands for Europe, Middle East and Africa). Our team is responsible for graduates and interns recruitment in EMEA - being more visible and more attractive to students and on campus - handling the recruitment process (sourcing, selection, offer, hire) for all students', graduates' and junior profiles. Our Oracle Recruitment EMEA team recruits the most motivated people in the industry for jobs in Oracle that offer a challenging and rewarding environment.

Our recruiting team in EMEA are part of the Oracle Business, working in partnership not just to fill jobs but also to find the most successful people who want to establish a long term career in a strong and successful enterprise.

My main objective is to find candidates for the French market; our main tools of searching are social media websites and the top Schools in France: “Grandes Ecoles”.  I am also in charge of organizing events and career fairs in France. My role is a wonderful way to understand how we recruit candidates in a multinational company. I am also learning how answer to managers’ needs and how to be efficient in order to facilitate the recruitment procedures.

One of the events I organized was in the Business School of EM Grenoble, one of the Top Business Schools in France (6th place in the ranking); with which Oracle Recruitment and Oracle Academy (https://academy.oracle.com/) have cooperated with for a long time.

Below, I explain the key points from the career fair that I attended in Grenoble:

How do I feel informing students about roles instead of being “a student looking for a job”? Just before arriving in the School it is quite stressing, as I am a student I had to be well prepared in order to look professional and keep the control of the presentation to have an impact on the candidates. When the students arrived I felt like having the responsibility to inform them about our role's offers, our company and finally I forgot to be stressed because I had knowledge about our activity that the students didn’t have. The interesting and “funny” point is that I am used to going into career fairs to find more information about companies and opportunities. This time I was in the “opposite role”: I could see the students’ shyness when they arrived to the career fair, and they remember me in the same situation just a few months ago!

What is the most important tip for a student attending a career fair? Probably to be more aware about the companies presenting during the career fair; looking at the company website they are going to talk with and at the job descriptions they want to apply. Of course it is much more profitable to bring a resume to give to the recruiters.

My feedback of the journey: It is really interesting for a student like me, who will look for internships or their first job in the next years, to participate as a company representative during a career fair. I learned an important aspect of a student’s behaviour: we used to search an internship only because we have to do it in order to validate our diploma; but company representatives can feel when students are presenting their resume because they are interested in the company, they have passion for that business… and not only because they have to do it for the school… 

The contact with the recruiters starts in the first moment you meet them to ask questions… so be more motivated!

We are looking for you!

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.
