5 Principles for Success in Oracle Sales Careers

"Being a lifelong learner has helped me tremendously in my career and in overcoming adversities." -Yolanda V., Regional Sales Manager, Midmarket Cloud SalesYolanda is a regional sales manager for Midmarket Cloud Sales based out of Oracle's Austin hub. Throughout her five years at Oracle, she has grown professionally and made tremendous strides in her sales and leadership skills.

A graduate of the University of Texas, Austin, she says, “As an Oracle Class Of program alum, I started my career journey as a sales development rep in the Small-to-Medium Business organization and then continued my passion for sales as an Oracle Digital sales rep when joining Oracle’s National Tech Sales organization.” Yolanda proudly adds. “More recently, I was promoted into management, where I can make a difference in developing our next generation of sales professionals.”

Throughout her career journey, Yolanda offers five principles for achieving success.

  1. Positivity
  2. Persistence
  3. Focus
  4. Gratitude
  5. Surrounding yourself with people you want to be like

As far as offering professional advice, Yolanda recommends, “Pave your own path and learn something new every day. Being a lifelong learner has helped me tremendously in my career and in overcoming adversities.”

Celebrating diversity at Oracle

For many Hispanic Americans, family is core. As a Latina, Yolanda’s family and leading by example for her two younger brothers are very important. She is also passionate about diversity issues—especially gender equality and helping other Hispanic women be successful—and is able to nurture this through our Oracle Latinos Alliance employee resources group.

As for her diversity-and-inclusion philosophy, Yolanda says, “Lead by example and be the change you want to see. Encouraging cultural diversity helps us to not only recognize but have respect for the way people live when they are different from us. It encourages us to interact with other people and groups of people in such a way that we are able to build trust, develop respect, and understand people from all backgrounds.”
