What do the participants say about the Open Day in South Africa?

Guest Author
On the 26th of September, a group of students who were
specifically selected to attend an Open day at Oracle South Africa, joined us
at our offices in Woodmead, Johannesburg. The Conference room was filled with
inquisitive minds. What we had in store for them was a detailed presentation
about Oracle which was delivered by Zuko - Cluster Leader: Tech GB South

The student’s many questions were all answered especially
when we started addressing the opportunities we have and detailed information
on our Graduate Programme. Our employees then came to talk about their
experience. This allowed all the students to have an integrated learning

By inviting the students to walk around our Oracle Offices
allowed them to see, talk, experience a bit of the culture and ask more

Here is some of the feedback from the attendees:

Maxwell Moloi: “The open day truly served its purpose and
exceeded expectations in the sense that I got to find out more about Oracle and
all the different opportunities it has to offer. The fact that Oracle supplies
a full solution to a customer and not just part of it and how the company
manages to setup professional development for their employees is what entices
me to want to join the rapidly growing team of Oracle.”

Nqobile Mabaso: “I found the open day to be quite
informative and enlightening because coming from a marketing background I could
apply the knowledge I got from varsity to the Company I was able to point out
what they do as part of their corporate social responsibility (Oracle recently
partnered with the department of education to build a school), how Oracle
emphasizes on relationship building because they know they sell to people and
not companies and how they offer the full stack of solutions which gives them a
competitive advantage over their competitors.”

Nondumiso Mvelase: “The Open Day was a wonderful experience
for me especially because I have never been part of an Open Day before, so it
was absolutely amazing for me. It gave me a good idea of how it is to be part
of Oracle. We were served with lovely breakfast and lunch which I enjoyed. I
wish the Open Day went on for a whole week. Seeing and hearing from 2013
Graduates, telling us about their experience within Oracle was very inspiring
to me. They were encouraging us to work hard if we ever got the opportunity
they had. After hearing this from them I will definitely not take it for

Itumeleng Moraka: “Before I walked into the Oracle offices
all that was in my mind was databases and cloud storage. I was then surrounded
by passionate, enthusiastic and welcoming employees. I came across a positive
energy within the multinational company. I realized that Oracle is not a
company that operates in survival mode. This may sound idealistic, but they operate
in a non-traditional way investing more into innovation, they stay focused on
what matters most about where technology is going and at the same time they are
not losing sight of how their products make a difference in the world.”
