The initial process of getting into Oracle
was answering an online test for which 450 people had registered. So, the hope
of clearing the exam was obviously less. When I got to know that I had cleared
it and I was one of those 66 people who were eligible for the next process,
again a faint hope arose in my mind. Finally commenced the Oracle day,that was Sept.
18th which began with the pre placement talk which I would say was
very informative. It made me feel like if I had desired for something, it was
Oracle. Later, once the talk was done, Technical Interview process started. Initially
I was extremely scared and nervous as it was my first interview ever. Later
when my turn came, somehow tried to build up my confidence level and entered
the cubicle. I was welcomed with a very warm smile by the interviewer. There
was a very good rapport built between the interviewer and me as both of us had
one common matter to discuss apart from the technical stuffs, it was astrology.
The interview went on for nearly half an hour. I was very happy at the end of
the day because I felt my interview really went well.
After I reached home at around 8’o clock I
got to know that I made up to the next round. I was very delighted and at that
point of time I felt that I must not come back bare handed. I prepared something
on some subjects. Next day, on september 19th was the 2nd
technical interview. I was called in the morning itself to the interview
cubicle. It was a very long interview. The interviewer explored the very
technical knowledge in me. But yes, I would not forget to say that the
interviewer was very kind, warm hearted and he made me feel comfortable. Finally,
soon after my 2nd interview was over, I was sent to the HR round. It
was perhaps a very stress free kind of interview. I was even asked to sing. I
was asked many questions with regard to my notion about the company and what it
really meant to me. I was asked to ask questions as well. Finally I was given
some details about the company.
At last at around 4:30 pm, official
declaration of the results were made, and fortunately, I was one amongst the
list of students who just made it. It was a complete amazing feeling then. I
was so so glad for having achieved the dream in my eyes.
It was nothing but an awesome journey
