My name is Cristina and I am an Intern in the Graduate Recruitment Team in Spain. I am part of The High Potential Students Program, the Internship program we have here in Spain. I would like to share with you the opening that took place a few weeks ago. First of all I would like to explain what the High Potential Students Program is.
We are approximately 50 interns across Spain who have the opportunity to develop our skills: we present to the rest of the interns to share our roles with them, we receive training about Oracle products, and we have the chance of having breakfast with important managers of Oracle, that tell us about their experiences in the company and give us some useful advice to develop our professional career. Another important point of this program is that managers are aware about the responsibilities of having an intern, so they give us objectives to follow up and also help us to develop our skills.
Like last Christmas, we have been making a calendar and all the profits we raise will go to charity . Apart from the social side, this activity has allowed us to become a more cohesive group of interns and we had a great time together taking the pictures for the calendar. The results show how successful this program is. From a total of 54 interns in FY12, 11 of them have been hired and 7 have been sub-contracted. These results motivate us much more, and give us strength to work harder.[Read More]
