What do the participants say about the #Gradstalk in Germany?

On the 5th of November this year, Oracle Graduate Recruitment invited students from the Berlin/Potsdam area to our Customer Visit Centre in the city centre of Berlin.

We discussed current IT trends – Globalization, Data Explosion, Rise of Mobility, Social is Business, – to show students and graduates what kind of challenges and big opportunities we’re facing at the moment and at the same time what they would face when joining Oracle.

We also gave them an insight into our Sales organization. We showed them negotiation techniques and the different personality types you might be in contact with when working in Sales – or any other line of business within Oracle.

We then opened the floor to questions about current job openings, how #lifeatOracle works and their career planning in general.

And what did the attendees think?

Lutz Welpelo: ‘It was a really good event – taking place in a perfect location. I liked the relaxed atmosphere, not the typical reserved one I’ve been expecting. Altogether, it was well structured, interactive and entertaining.’

Benjamin Hoffmann: ‘I really liked the event – the topics mentioned were interesting and made a positive impact on my impression of Oracle. I got the chance to speak to two members of the Sales organization which confirmed my intention to apply for a job at Oracle. For me, it has been a successful event – no questions remained unanswered.’

Meet Oracle Interns: Robert, Sales Intern in Poland

Hi, my name is Robert! I recently joined the Sales Consulting team at Oracle Poland to be their new consultant on Big Data and Oracle Big Data Appliance. I’m still an undergraduate student at Warsaw School of Economics where I study Quantitative Methods in Economics and Information Systems but my young age wasn’t a problem for Oracle to give me a chance to work on one of its most promising innovations.

It’s especially fascinating for me as the subject of Big Data is amazingly thrilling. Processing Big Data (vast amounts of unstructured data such as blog entries, sensor information, tweets or pictures from the Internet) opens many new ways for enterprises to derive great value and make better decisions. As a technology enthusiast and a business school student it has always been my dream to be apart of such innovations, and that’s why I applied for the internship program here at Oracle. I’m sure it was a perfect decision.

During my first few days at Oracle...

Spotlight on a technical centre: Product Development IT

Hi! My name is Ionuț and I am the Manager of the Product Development IT team based in Romania. As is introduction time, I will also tell you something about me: I have always liked good stories, with passionate people chasing their goals and fulfilling their passions.

 So I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a story

It is about a handful of people who started a new team, with it’s own culture and a new friendship. Each came with the best skills they had and strived to learn the ones they needed. Some came with database skills and learned programming in scripting languages (Perl, KSH), others came with Java Enterprise skills and made those flourish by developing new JavaEE applications, but also stepped up to help others do scripting and operating system administration and learnt new languages.

Others joined with all sorts of qualities, like scripting, database administration, sql programming, user-interface programming skills like PHP and JQuery and others came with Linux knowledge. Some knew more, others less. But they all found that they could learn from each other and from the experience they had...

The Student Life In Russia

Throughout time, Russian students’ life has gone through many different changes. We spend our time in a totally different way than our parents used to and also focus on different aspects of our lives. Nowadays, more and more students are trying to study and work in the same time as it is highly valued from employers’ perspective. This aspect has had a significant impact on students’ life as their activities and interests have changed. We have recently face another change that has been a challenge, going from the classical 5years System of Education to the Bologna System. My name is Valeria and I am a Sales Intern in Oracle Russia. I will tell you more about the challenges that a Russian student is facing and also about what employers are looking for in my country.

Russia has recently replaced the classical national 5-years system of education with the Bologna Process Model, 4 years plus 2 years. After five years of study, students received a specialist certificate, but nowadays, they receive only a diploma of general higher education. There are both advantages and disadvantages for this change. For instance, after graduating 5-years, students realized that the knowledge they gained was out of date and that foreign universities did not accept their certificate. The Bologna Process Model of Bachelor and Master Degrees give students the chance to use their diploma in many universities around the world.
