Hi, Moin Moin
Name is Neele, originally German and now living in Ireland. I have been working
as a Business Development Representative
for Oracle in Dublin since November 2010. After graduating from my Business
School in Southern Germany (DHBW Ravensburg) I was working at Lidl for about a
year until Oracle came into my life. Oracle contacted me and offered me an
amazing start to my career. As I studied International Business, my dream was
to work abroad. The opportunity with Oracle included the chance to work abroad
in an international surrounding with getting to know people from all different
countries of Europe. – My Dream!
multicultural environment is unique in Europe. I am working directly with
colleagues from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Great Britain,
Portugal and many other European countries in ONE single team.

environment. It´s a multicultural organization and offers you the ability to
learn global business processes. Nowhere else can you gain this much knowledge
that you can promote into the next role within one year.
My job is focused on generating demand for
Oracle products and finding new business opportunities over the phone. I have established
a close relationship with Sales People all over Europe, but in particular,
those based in Germany and Switzerland. Within a few short months I have
acquired a professional knowledge of the whole IT Sector. At Oracle, I constantly
receive relevant training on a weekly basis to enhance my skill-set. I am
constantly supported by management and my personal mentor. I attend regular
on-to-one sessions with my manager to review my career development plan.
amazing thing I am experiencing is my growing self-confidence and
professionalism when speaking with customers. From having CEO’s on the phone,
to having meetings with 15 different nationalities, to familiarizing with
living in Ireland… it’s something that you will never experience in Germany.
Dublin as a place to life is also important to mention: Dublin has its own character. A city
with most of the inhabitants between 20 and 40 offers a lot of activities for
young professionals. The city is modern, vibrant and has a whole lot of
You can decide between anything from water sports, chill at the
beach, go cycling, or indoor sports, or hang out with some friends in Temple Bar
and still I haven´t mentioned all of activities Dublin has to offer. Also there
is a big cultural and musical scene here in Dublin.
If I am speaking for myself: I am a
member of around 10 people from Oracle who plan to go on trips once a month or
go to pubs and movies all together. Just last month we have been to Northern
Ireland for a weekend.
groups emerge during every foundation training all New Starters get here. It is
a training course for getting the start up knowledge for Oracle.
in all working here in Dublin for Oracle with all the different possibilities
for personal career development is an added value to a career path for business
graduates and a perfect opportunity to get to know an international global
player and its cultures.
