Meet our Interns: Darlington, Technology Sales Intern

For this week, we have interviewed one of our interns in Nigeria about his first number of weeks at Oracle and how students can maximize their chances of being hired into a position in our company.

Hi everybody! My name is Darlington, I’m an intern here in Oracle Nigeria and my current role is as a Sales Intern in the Technology General Business sector. I went to St. Murumba College School and I completed my CCNA in 2005. I was then admitted into the University of Jos where I studied Computer Science and graduated in 2010.

My first week in Oracle was really awesome; it wasn’t what I really expected because the staff here were so friendly and open to always offer assistance to someone who needed help...

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...

Sales Event in Deauville

I had the opportunity to attend this Concours de Negociation in Deauville in 2013 and have to say that this event was a great experience.

We had the chance to present ORACLE to a large group of graduates from prestigious schools motivated to work for ORACLE and we realize that a large group of students were interested in pursuing a career in sales in IT.

The second day was dedicated to the sales simulations where 22 candidates demonstrated their sales skills and we finally found 7 outstanding candidates.

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...

Meet Oracle Interns: Robert, Sales Intern in Poland

Hi, my name is Robert! I recently joined the Sales Consulting team at Oracle Poland to be their new consultant on Big Data and Oracle Big Data Appliance. I’m still an undergraduate student at Warsaw School of Economics where I study Quantitative Methods in Economics and Information Systems but my young age wasn’t a problem for Oracle to give me a chance to work on one of its most promising innovations.

It’s especially fascinating for me as the subject of Big Data is amazingly thrilling. Processing Big Data (vast amounts of unstructured data such as blog entries, sensor information, tweets or pictures from the Internet) opens many new ways for enterprises to derive great value and make better decisions. As a technology enthusiast and a business school student it has always been my dream to be apart of such innovations, and that’s why I applied for the internship program here at Oracle. I’m sure it was a perfect decision.

During my first few days at Oracle...

Spotlight on a Technical Centre: North America Presales Center in Romania

This month, Cristian, North America Presales Manager will give you an insight into what his team does and how you can become part of it.

It is important to mention from the start that in Oracle the Presales term is an umbrella that covers more different specialisations. It starts with Enterprise Architects that know both Oracle products and client business needs and are able to recommend the best overall solutions. It continues with Product Specialists that knows in detail a couple of related products and are able to present their capabilities to the client. It ends with Pre-Sales Support teams that don’t interact with external clients but goes even deeper on a technical path.

There are several different Oracle Presales Centers spread across Europe, Middle East and Africathat provide support to the Sales Representatives from different parts of the world. The North America Shared Services department is based in Romania and we may say that it is a technical support department, responsible for the more difficult questions and configurations that appear during the sales process.
