In the past
month, I have been given the exclusive opportunity to hire a Legal
graduate/intern for Oracle’s in-house Legal Counsel based here in North Ryde,
talking to various applicants, I am asked the same, broad question – what are
we looking for?
time I have spoken about targeting the best, or targeting the best fit. I am an
advocate of the latter, hence when approaching this question I answer very
simply – ‘we are looking for the individual, that will fit into the culture and
environment that is uniquely Oracle’.
So, what is
the environment/culture like here at Oracle? What makes Oracle so unique and a
great place to work, especially as a graduate?
our business model, we are forward and innovative thinkers – we are not afraid
to try new things, whether it is a success or failure. We are all highly
driven, motivated and successful individuals – Oracle is a firm believer that
in order to be driven, motivated and successful, you need to be surrounded by
like minded people. And last, we are all autonomous and independent, self
starters – at Oracle you are treated as an adult. We are not in the business of
continually micro managing, nor constantly spoon feeding or holding your hand.
Oracle has an amazing support, resource and training network – if you need
support, extra training or resources it is there for your taking. And of
course, if you do it on your own accord, you will learn it much quicker.
reasons, Oracle is unique in its environment – we ensure and set up everyone
With such a great working
environment/culture, why wouldn’t you choose Oracle?
