Meet our Interns: Essam and Noel

Essam, Saudi Arabia

 Hi! My name is Essam and I am an intern in the Middleware Tech Pre-sales team. I graduated from the King Saud University in Saudi Arabia, Software Engineering Department. The first few weeks at Oracle were really good, I met a lot of new people and this helped me see that life as an employee is different from the university. I wasn’t expecting all employees and managers to be as helpful as they were. Even though they have their own work, responsibilities and deadlines to meet, they always stop to listen and help.

For students to maximize their chances of being accepted to an Oracle program, I think they should know more about the products and the core business of the company...

Meet our Interns: Dudu, Presales Intern in South Africa

1. Please introduce yourself and your current role at Oracle.

My name is Duduzile, I’m a young South African woman fresh out of varsity and I studied Bcom Finance at the University of Johannesburg. I am currently an intern at Oracle in the Pre-Sales Applications Business Unit.

2. How were the first few weeks @Oracle?

My first week at Oracle was exciting and nerve nerve wracking at the same time. Exciting because it was great to be part of such a prestigious company and nerve wracking because it was a new experience and a new environment with new people. Fortunately Oracle did not make us feel like new interns who knew nothing, but instead they made us feel like family and welcomed us with open arms so the nervousness didn’t last for long...

A Graduate’s Words of Advice from Beijing, China

Hi! My name is Jing, a FY13 trainee from Beijing China.

Since your major in university is probably not computing or technology, you might hesitate that if you can adapt to the atmosphere and have a great career development in Oracle before you apply for the graduate trainee program. My response to this doubt is to: Go ahead!

For myself: I am a postgraduate student of Media and Communications from University of Leicester. So you can hardly imagine how surprised and excited I was when received a job offer from Oracle. It was also a bit vacillating in my opinion at first but finally I decided to have a try, and then I found it was a smart choice!

As one of the largest international companies, Oracle is obviously an expert on exploring the potential and possibility of inexperienced new hires....[Read More]

Meet our Interns: Ahmad, Sales Intern in Kuwait

Please introduce yourself and your current role at Oracle.

My name is Ahmad. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science and I graduated from the Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) in Fall 2010. I was lucky to be selected for the Oracle inter program and I started my career here in March 2013 as a Sales Intern looking after Oracle Technologies.

How were the first few weeks @Oracle?

Oracle was always an company I aspired to work for. During the first few days I was introduced to the amazing professionals working here and got an insight into the company’s valuable products. This made me more and more keen to learn about the company and products, this is on top of the extremely high level of support that have from the teams and managers. Honestly, I am very grateful for this opportunity and I know I will learn so much from the time I have here.

Is anything different from what you expected to find at Oracle?

New beginnings with Oracle Campus Recruiter Phillip Yi

As I sit here on level 7, Tower B at Oracle’s Australian headquarters in North Ryde, I reflect on the journey that has been the past 10 months since joining Oracle. To me Oracle did have its familiarity – coming from an IT Recruitment background I would meet candidates that specialised in technologies like Primavera, Hyperion, Java, MYSQL, JD Edwards, Sun, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Taleo.. Little did I know that I would one day work for the IT conglomerate that would own them all.

 Who is Oracle? ‘A database company’ – as I’ve heard it many times before. But Oracle is so much more than just a Database company. Oracle is truly a leader in IT innovation  – hardware and software, engineered to work together. Reducing the complexity, simplifying IT. Over 9,000 products, with over 2,000 patents. 32,000 developers, running over 300,000+ test scripts nightly. 6,500 customer-driven enhancements yearly. 1 million+ students supported and over 20,000 implementation consultants. Not to mention being ranked #1 in 40 product or product and industry categories with over 380,000 customers in 145 countries and over 100,000+ employees...

Meet our Interns: Sabra, Sales Intern in Oman

1. Please introduce yourself and your current role at Oracle!

Hi! I’m Sabra from the Sultanate of Oman. I have a Bachelor Degree in Internet and E-Security from the Higher College of Technology which is considered one of the most beautiful colleges in the world. I graduated from this course on December 25th 2012 and a couple of months later I started my internship at Oracle! I’m a Sales Intern and I’m part of the Technology Sales team. It’s been a great feeling to finish my Degree and be onboard already finding myself learning about Oracle technologies!

2. How were the first weeks @Oracle?

I enjoyed every minute of my first few days as my new colleagues made me feel very welcomed. It is highly important to have your peers’ support as you’re in the early phase of your career and don’t have much experience with the business environment.

From the very first day at Oracle I came to the conclusion that the corporate life is very different from what we think of it when we are students...

Why working in Pre-Sales matches having a Computer Science background

Hello! My name is Roy and I have been working as a Technology Presales Consultant for almost a year now in the Oracle EMEA Presales Centre (EPC) in Málaga. In this article I will briefly outline my background and how I found my way to Oracle. I will also attempt to explain exactly what the EPC is and what makes working for the EPC so exciting.

Working in the EPC gives me the opportunity to work in a truly international environment. Whilst I am assigned to the German market, so far I have spent time working for the Spanish, UK, German, Swiss, Belgian and Dutch field teams. I liaise with my Romanian and Indian colleagues on a daily basis and I work with the engineering and product management teams in the US, providing feedback on the latest product releases. I (try to) speak Spanish on the way into work and use English in the office with my colleagues who are French, German, Polish, Russian, English, Dutch, Italian, Romanian, Swedish and Spanish, I then speak either Dutch, German or English with the field teams...

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...

Spotlight on an office - Nairobi, Kenya

Hi everyone, my name is Joash Mitei. I am a graduate Intern at Oracle Systems Kenya and I will briefly take you through our offices and the working environment here in Nairobi, Kenya. I’ve been with Oracle since February 2012 and I’m responsible for Applications Pre-sales focusing on Oracle EPM and E-Business Suite. My background is Finance and Accounting therefore joining Oracle was almost a totally a different ball game but the transition has been smooth.

The Oracle offices here are located on the second floor of Mebank Towers. We moved to the 2nd floor just three months ago from the 5th floor mainly because of the growing workforce. We are covering the whole Eastern Africa region hence diversity in culture is evident. This is a plus since you get to interact with people of very different backgrounds, cultures and ways of thinking...[Read More]

Spotlight on an office - Moscow

Probably the most famous place in Moscow, after Red Square, is the centre of Moscow. Here you can find beautiful buildings that seem to touch the sky, located on the banks of the river. In one of these high towers you can find the Oracle offices, friendly and modern. The stunning view will keep capture your attention for a couple of minutes and then you can enjoy a delicious coffee and take a seat at your desk, starting a new day.

My name is Dmitry and I can tell you that we’re enjoying every minute spent in the office and that’s because of the pleasant atmosphere. As soon as you enter the offices, the friendly environment will make you feel more relaxed. Even though the space is split between the different departments, we interact and communicate a lot. We take our cup of coffee or tea together and discuss our achievements and all sort of subjects in the kitchen or in the open space...

Spotlight on an Office – Reading TVP offices

This month we’re in the UK at the Reading offices, for ‘Spotlight on an office’, written by Hannah Down. The Reading Office, which is Oracle’s UK Headquarters, is based in Thames Valley Park (TVP), which is a bustling hive of activity that houses many different companies, a gym, and even a nursery. Overlooking the Thames and some of England’s beautiful countryside, this office, just a short free bus ride from Reading Town Centre is in a fantastic location.

The offices themselves are made up of 5 different buildings, each with their own car park, restaurant, and design.

The main building or TVP 510 as it is referred to, sits resplendent next to an extremely blue (for the UK) pond, filled with large koi-carp that on a sunny day like to come to the surface of the lake and bask. As the main hub of activity ...
