Lesi, from Graduate Trainee to Territory Manager

It’s the final year, University is now coming to an end. A new chapter now awaits my arrival. This part of my life is called “Looking for a Job”. With no form of experience whatsoever, getting a job at a well renowned IT company is something that every IT student dreams about.

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.

How to build a great relationship with your colleagues

When you start new job, you worry about your performance, about being able to do what the manager asks you to do, but you also worry about the relations with your colleagues. How will you get along with them? What if they don’t like you? Have you ever felt you’re „the new guy” and your colleagues have already their own way of talking one to each other, their own jokes? It’s a common feeling and can actually become stressful.

I am Norbert, Middleware Presales Intern in Hungary and I’ve been working within Oracle for only 1 month. Joining such a big company has been a challenge from many perspectives. One of them was adapting with the environment and getting to know all my colleagues. You know it’s quite difficult to introduce yourself, to try to liaise with them and find some common topics, so I felt very lucky and comfortable when my manager introduced me to all of my colleagues...[Read More]

How important is your body language at a job interview?

Candidates usually think that Recruiters are focused on their words and their replies to questions, but actually what interviewers are trying to do is to understand the person in front of them better, through their answers, but also through their body language. Your gestures, your posture and your eye contact can emphasize what you are saying, convincing the interviewer with your truthfulness, but can also contradict your statements. Imagine an introverted person trying to convince you that he/she enjoys speaking in public and interacting with many people. Would she or he be convincing? Furthermore, your body language expresses different sides of your personality. Let’s take as an example of a person who is fluent and whose voice is not trembling when answering even the most difficult questions. Would you say that person isn’t nervous? It might be, but we could also think that person has a good control of his/ her emotions. What should you take into consideration when attending a job interview?
