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...

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...

The secret of my success – by Cais, UK Cloud Solution Consultant

After completing my Masters in Management (specialised in Innovation), I came across an Oracle job advert for a presales position (Malaga, Spain). The advert was located on the Imperial College Business School Facebook page. I was hired in under two weeks! Now that’s an efficient hiring process!

My journey with Oracle began on the 15th of November 2010 two weeks after the EMEA Presales Centre (EPC) Academy launched in Malaga. The EPC academy goal is to nurture the company’s future field presales. My responsibility was to provide primary support to field presales in the UK and EMEA.

Over time I developed the relationship with field presales and their managers at every opportunity. At the EPC I was involved in the following activities, responded to customer tenders, customized demos, and prepared product/solution presentations and demonstrations. 

A year after joining Oracle, we launched a home grown solution called Oracle Sales Cloud...[Read More]

Spotlight on a Career Path: Former German-speaking Business Development Representatives about their career with Oracle

As a recruiter for German-speaking graduates I am often faced with this question as career progression plays a pivotal part in choosing the right employer. And luckily, I can tell each of my candidates that career progression is THE Unique Selling Proposition (USP) when joining our Business Development Group in Dublin. Why?

Well, we hire graduates in order to qualify them quickly for the next career step in Dublin or Potsdam or Malaga or other key locations across EMEA. The choice is yours and we are happy to provide you with the right skill set in order to achieve your goals. But paper doesn´t blush – let´s have a look at the career progression of some former German Business Development colleagues. It´s time to get a picture of our USP and to see what´s really in it for you.
