"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...

Oracle & I - Graduate Recruitment Intern Diary

Our Love Story

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 Recruitment.

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...

Be Hungry ,Be foolish by Phillip Yi

April 3rd, 2013, 7.30am - I walk into Oracle’s Sydney Australia offices to prepare for what will be my first time running the Australia Oracle Graduate Program interview day. I wonder to myself what this day would hold and how it would pan out – would it be a success? Or would we have to go back to the drawing board.

There is more to a Graduate Role at Oracle Than Just Work by Lu Guo

Hello all. I’m Lu. As a fresh graduate I joined in Oracle in April 2013 in our Oracle China offices. To be honest, I was not sure whether I made the right choice for me to work for Oracle at the beginning. But after three months, I realize that this is really a huge lucky choice and definitely the right choice. :P Let me explain.

At first and as a fresh graduate, I want to introduce the best thing so far for recent Oracle Graduates – The Oracle College Hire Program (All the graduates are divide into classes to attend this program). In official words, this program helps us understand Oracle’s culture and value; it helps get new college hires quickly acclimated and productive on new and innovative work; it provides meaningful events that engage new college hires and contributes to their retention; it gets college hires so motivated about Oracle that they act as ambassadors of Oracle to their alma mater.

Actually, these sentences are too official that I cannot quite understand what they mean. But in the past two months, what this program means to us is Play, Play and Play :D. Also the program gives us a lot help on our work, but this is ‘Top Secret’, so I cannot talk more. Only one, it makes us happy working here. OK, let’s focus on the Play’ part.

In the first activity, Class Kick Off, we went to the Great Wall in ChengDe and we got a courtyard house as our base at the foot of the hill. In the daytime of first day, we climbed the Great Wall...

Inspiration

Once again, I find myself back in Seoul – ASEM Tower, 16th Floor in a mobile room. I’m busy preparing for the interview process that is about to take place for Oracle Korea’s GIP 7th (Graduate Intake Program): scheduling the first round interviews, organizing interview guidelines, educating interviewers on the process and framework and  getting all the logistics ready for the 1st round interview.

Seoul or Korea rather is a fascinating place. Highly efficient, the utmost respect for seniors and results orientated. When students come in for an interview at first it was hard to tell them apart – there seems to be accepted interview attire that must be worn when attending an interview. Males and Females, all dress in black suits, with white shirts underneath – with males to wear simple and dark colored ties.

During the interview, they would all sit very upright, all would bow when entering the room, place their hands on the laps and very often they would hold minimal eye contact. They would project their voice loud to portray confidence, they would talk in the Korean formal dialect at all times and will treat every question, every moment with extreme clarity and the utmost professionalism.

When the interview concludes, they will all stand hands by their sides, bow 90 degrees and thank all the interviewers for their precious time and opportunity. As soon as they leave the interview room, I could hear all their sighs of relief and commended each other on their efforts.

More and more I learn about the Korean culture it inspires me. Their patriotism, their respect for each, their values, their appreciation, their motivation, their desires and passion – it truly was an experience for me (even as a recruiter) and can’t help but feel truly impressed and motivated to live for every moment.

Growing up together in Oracle

We really appreciate that we can join in Oracle and pass through an Asia-Pacific-wide Graduate Program. In this program, we do not only participate in structured training, but also have chances to work on real business challenges across our lines of business.

 What do we learn and achieved in this program?

 There are three critical stages in this program: foundation, rotation and placement. Foundation gives us an orientation to understand the Oracle policy, the responsibilities of different LOB and the culture of Self-Service. After that a detailed and useful training are provided during our rotation, which also include the product knowledge, the professional industry analysis and the introduction of call skills. When we back to the placement, the hiring manager was really patient and kindly to provide variety kinds of opportunities on putting us into real calls.

What is more, in our daily work, we mostly focused on following up market events, BDC program and profiling. As a lead generation representative, what we need to know was how to attract and to communicate with customers via telephone, and also, highly controlled that how to grasp the requisite product knowledge quickly and how to cooperate with colleagues, both business development consults and sales...

Should you accept the first job after graduating?

When we graduate we are usually very eager to get our first job, earn our own money and live the life we’ve dreamed of. We want to be on our own, be independent and make the first step towards a successful career in the business we choose. We start applying for the jobs we would like to have, hoping we will receive a call. It might happen that we don’t only apply for the jobs we dreamed of, but also for some other jobs that aren’t so appealing to us. We are motivated to work, so we might be tempted to apply even for jobs that don’t fit our personality or who aren’t exactly what we want. What if we receive an offer for one of these jobs? Should we say yes just because of our willingness to work and be employed?

We would say that the answer is neither yes, nor no. There are several aspects that you should take into consideration before accepting the first job offer and even before applying for jobs.
