Having special interest in database
management and data integrations, ORACLE was the core company that I had always
dreamt of. When I got to know that ORACLE was visiting our campus for
recruitment I knew this was my chance.

The first round was an online aptitude test
and I was eagerly waiting for the results which
were out after four days. I was thrilled to see my name in the top 66.
The competition now was going to be tough and I started preparing earnestly.
The next day morning along with the selected students I attended the
pre placement talk which was motivating and we were given a brief insight about

All of us were then divided into batches
and called for interviews accordingly. Handling nervousness and pressure, I was
anxiously waiting for my turn. My interview was at 6 in the evening. I managed
to keep a smile and give my best. The questions were mostly based on cloud
computing which is my favorite subject and elective. I was asked a puzzle,
based on logical reasoning for which I was able give a good answer. At the end
of the first technical round all I wanted was to see my name in the the 30
short listed names. I was on my way home when I got a call from my best friend
saying I had made it to the second technical round. It was indeed a step closer
to my dream.

The interviews were scheduled at 9 the next
morning and all of us were ready in the waiting room.Tension
and anxiety clearly reflected in everyone’s
face. I was asked questions based on my major project and I answered well. More puzzles based on clocks and
logical reasoning followed. I was asked about my dreams and ambitions. I knew
that I had given my best. I was called to the HR round next which turned out to be a friendly interview. I was
asked about my family, my hobbies and my interest in

It was 3 in the afternoon when the
interviews were done and I was sitting with the other candidates. With fingers
crossed I prayed that my name be called. “Juanita Mendonca!”. And there it was!
I was finally an ORACLEite!!!

I was still trying to sink in the feeling
that my dream had indeed come true!!!
joy knew no bounds. Truly it was an
amazing experience.

My parents were proud, loads of happiness
and well wishes from family and friends flowed in.

Proud to be an ORACLEite!!!
