For Oracle, Veterans represent a source of invaluable experience, skills, and leadership. Having them as part of the company adds a unique edge, no matter in what task, project, or operation they participate. Joel Q. is one of such Veterans in the organization, currently a part of Oracle NetSuite’s SuiteVet training program—once he finishes, he’ll move into the consulting practice within the company. Even though his journey is only just beginning, he thinks more Veterans should know about the program and the opportunities it offers.
“I wanted to join Oracle NetSuite because they’re willing to invest in me personally and in my career; Oracle understands the value that a Veteran’s experience can bring to the table,” Joel says. “The development program seemed like it would provide a good foundation to be successful once I finished and moved on towards working on live projects. I also liked that here at Oracle NetSuite I’m not limited to future career opportunities within the company, as Oracle encourages me to pursue what’s best for me and my career.”
Even though it’s only been less than a couple of months since Joel joined the organization, he already sees how he can contribute to its success. “As an Army Officer, my day-to-day consisted of building and maintaining relationships,” he mentions. “At Oracle NetSuite I enjoy being around its different personalities; I feel like I can take those interpersonal soft skills I developed in my military career and apply them to consulting. I’ve only been here for about 5 weeks, but I look forward to hopefully being able to contribute to the team’s overall success.”
If you’re a fellow Veteran interested in participating in Oracle NetSuite’s SuiteVet training program, consider Joel’s advice: “I had a pretty smooth, comfortable transition from the Army. I was able to do so because I started preparing well in advance, and I gave myself time to actually transition and move on from my military career. My advice is to stay calm and not get too overwhelmed.”
