Confessions of an Oracle CX Technical Consultant

Hi! My Name is Maria and I am a Customer Experience (CX) Sales Consultant at Oracle UK based in London, one of the most vibrant, energetic and coolest cities in Europe. My journey here has been fun, interesting and full of new experiences.

It’s not unusual to have a recent University grad not know what they want to do right after college and of course that is exactly what happened to me. But let me tell you a secret: you don’t have to! It’s your attitude that really matters. What do you do when have new opportunities in front of you? Do you ignore and walk away from them or do you accept them and welcome change? Like Paulo Coelho would say “The boat is safer anchored at the port; but that’s not the aim of boats” (The Pilgrimage).

I will let you know a bit about myself and my background, so you can understand how I’ve come to be where I am at today. I was born in the US from Spanish parents and grew up between Spain and the US...

My first weeks at Oracle by Keneiloe

Hi  everyone,

My name is Keneiloe a Graduate Recruitment Intern based in South Africa. My first weeks at Oracle have been mind blowing and exceptionally interesting. The first day was slow and really all about getting a feel for everything and getting to know everybody. The days following that I can really say I enjoyed as I am an individual that likes to get involved, learn new things and really immerse myself into something. I know my mentor saw this in me from the beginning and she really did nurture the urge I had to get involved.

I found that the environment was nothing close to what I expected. People were really friendly and yet very much focused on their own tasks and I established very quickly that this is how people worked in Oracle. You work interdependently and you can always ask and receive help when you need it. What fascinated me the most was discovering that the person your most likely getting help from wasn’t just down the hall or even in another province but from a different country and assisted you as though they were sitting right next to you.

In my second week at Oracle unfortunately my mentor was called out of office to attend to some personal matters. This was both a blessing and curse for me as we really did establish a solid working relationship she was able to trust me in handle matters while she was away, while also teaching me things I wouldn’t have learnt otherwise...[Read More]

How to ace Skype Interviews

Many companies these days opt to include a Skype interview in the recruitment process, as it comes close to a face-to-face interview without the time and costs involved for both the company and the candidate. In some cases during the recruitment process at Oracle you also might be asked to conduct a Skype interview. To help you get started with this, we researched some websites to give you several tips and tricks. What most of the bloggers say about this topic is collected in this article to help you prepare.

It is all about Technology

The bit that can make a Skype interview more complicated than a face-to-face or phone interview is the fact you are using additional technology. Always check the video and audio capabilities of your computer to make sure they work properly. Be prepared for connections to be limited during the interview. Using a webcam can also be confusing, if you do not have a lot of experience using it. Make sure you look at the camera and not the monitor to avoid the impression you are looking away...

Should you accept the first job after graduating?

When we graduate we are usually very eager to get our first job, earn our own money and live the life we’ve dreamed of. We want to be on our own, be independent and make the first step towards a successful career in the business we choose. We start applying for the jobs we would like to have, hoping we will receive a call. It might happen that we don’t only apply for the jobs we dreamed of, but also for some other jobs that aren’t so appealing to us. We are motivated to work, so we might be tempted to apply even for jobs that don’t fit our personality or who aren’t exactly what we want. What if we receive an offer for one of these jobs? Should we say yes just because of our willingness to work and be employed?

We would say that the answer is neither yes, nor no. There are several aspects that you should take into consideration before accepting the first job offer and even before applying for jobs.

How to get the most from an Oracle internship?

Do you know how many people work within Oracle? More than 100.000! It’s quite a huge company and being an Intern among all these people might seem a small thing. I would say that it’s a great opportunity to learn, experience new and important things for your development. When you are part of a corporation you want to give your best and let them see you want to stay even after your internship ends. Do you agree with me?

My name is Andreea and I am an Intern within the Oracle SSC Admin Team. When I joined the company, the corporate environment had a great impact on me as I didn’t know what to expect of this experience. I was suddenly part of a professional team, learning, working and willing to prove they made the right choice. There are 6 other  interns that started at the same time as I did, which made the situation more comfortable for me. If you think of yourself, what would you do if you were an Intern? You would probably do the same as us. We’ve tried to do our best in learning and assimilating as much as we could from this new experience.

How important is the work environment for you?

What criteria do you consider when you receive a job offer? Responsibilities? The salary or the manager? What about the work environment and all those things that can make you motivated in the work place?

My name is Marie and I am a Partner Intelligence Support Intern. I’ve realised how important this last aspect is when I joined Oracle. I am in the final year at the Charles University in Prague, studying Social Geography and Regional Development. If you’re thinking that my studies are actually quite different from what I do at my job, so it is. Fortunately, the faculty helped improve some of the skills required in this position and this is how I got to Oracle. I first thought that I would have a career in Social Geography, but eventually I prospected the job market and realised there are other jobs I would like to have. Joining the Partner Intelligence Support team has definitely been a good decision, especially because of my colleagues and the environment I am working in.

A Day in the Life a Social Media and Branding Coordinator

As I arrive in the morning, I turn my computer on and grab a cup of coffee while I’m waiting for it to start up. Then it’s straight to the emails.I usually list whatever tasks are required from my colleagues in a notebook and set about prioritising them to be done during the day, unless of course there are any urgent requirements. Then its’ onto social media.

Twitter and Facebook

I have installed the Tweetdeck application on Chrome, which is an indispensable tool. I can view pretty much anything anyone is saying to us on Twitter via this one location. Usually, I go to our Facebook pages first and check the updates since the previous day. I’ll respond to these comments and messages and then move to publishing our daily post on each Facebook page.
