"...This is my future" by Shaikha Al Shehhi

My name is Shaikha and I am an Oracle intern. I am based in United Arab Emirate in the Abu Dhabi Office. I work with the Technology team and my focus will be in Database.

When I was presented with the opportunity to join Oracle, I told myself this is my future. It is my dream to join one of the biggest companies over the world. Although 6 months may be a short period of time, I will utilize this period in the best of my ability and gain as much knowledge as I can from fellow oracle employees.

Before I began my internship in Oracle I worried about many things. One thing is how I will treat many people from different countries there? And will they be cooperative with me or not?

"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...

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.’
