From Division 1 Football to Oracle Digital: Why Team Spirt Goes a Long Way

"Oracle's training and development went way beyond my expectations." -Jonathan T., Sales and Business Development Consultant, Oracle Digital

As a former Division 1 football player at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Jonathan is used to being part of a high-performing team. It’s that same team spirit, dedication, and work ethic that serve him so well in his current role as a Business Development Consultant for Oracle Digital.

“Playing football, you really rely on your teammates. You learn from them and you grow with them. It’s the same here at Oracle. We work together as a team to set goals and achieve them as a unit. The skills that I’ve picked up on and off the field have really served me here.”

Jonathan started his career at Oracle through the Class Of program. He credits this professional stepping stone with preparing him for his current position. “Class Of was a great opportunity for me straight out of college. Not only did I get to network with my future co-workers, I also got first-hand experience and on-the-job training that set me up for the actual work I’m doing now.

“The training and development went way beyond my expectations. It meant that when I started as a Business Development Consultant, I felt like I was already armed with the skills I needed. As a new hire, I feel very lucky to have such a great experience under my belt already.”

Jonathan’s focus as a Business Development Consultant is on proactively building a pipeline of opportunities for Oracle HCM—a suite of HR applications that empower businesses to make smarter and faster HR decisions than ever before.

"I target enterprise level which means I go after big companies. Oracle HCM has an AI first approach that can help them optimize everything from recruiting to payroll.”

What Jonathan prizes most about life at Oracle Digital is the sense of community. “Everyone is so willing to help you learn and grow. Everyone you meet has the same mind-set: Keep moving forward, keep getting better, and always look for ways to innovate. It creates a really positive atmosphere.

“While there’s always someone on hand to teach you new skills, my team are also not afraid to let me figure out things for myself. They encourage me to learn from my experiences and see what I can improve. I can really notice the difference this mentality makes. It’s helped me to become a better version of myself—professionally and personally.”
