Actively recruiting America's Heroes.
At Oracle, we are actively recruiting the best and brightest and we respect the unique skill set our American heroes bring to the workplace. Leadership, loyalty and commitment to excellence are instilled in military participants and valued at Oracle.
Every day at Oracle there are new challenges, new problems to solve and YOU can make a difference.
Oracle has a long history serving our veterans, especially those injured during their service to find employment. Our efforts include:
Oracle is proud to sponsor a job-training program designed to enhance professional and personal development for qualified veterans injured in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This program is designed to: (1) Increase employee productivity by providing guidance in areas where the two cultures differ; (2) Minimize the confusion and uncertainty associated with transitioning from the military to the corporate environment during the early days of employment; (3) Increase recruiting and retention among veterans by fostering an inclusive culture.
The mission of the Workforce Development Program (WDF) is to offer affordable, flexible, industry recognized Oracle training to US Veterans, supporting Oracle certifications resulting in employment and an increase in earning potential.
As a Veteran, you already know the skills you possess, so – what can a career at Oracle mean for you?
My day to day job involves managing technical support renewal contracts for Oracle Partners. I manage 10 Partners and over 600 contracts. It's my responsibility to read and understand the agreements the Partners have with Oracle to ensure compliance and on-time renewal throughout our Fiscal Year." Organizational skills, juggling multiple Partners and contracts and taking initiative to assist Partners with any issues that arise and renew technical support on-time helps ensure Oracle's commitment to its customers.
My advice to other Vets is to network and talk to other Vets. There are programs and organizations out there like Hirepurpose that you may not know exist. These organizations will help you connect with companies who want to capitalize on the experience Vets have. The Transition Assistance Classes are important when you transition out of the military but it cannot give you all the connections and lessons learned other Vets can. But pay attention to resume writing classes, get your degree and be persistent.
As the leader of the Americas Operations teams for Network Services, I'm responsible for the daily operations of a very large globally distributed network infrastructure, that covers multiple data centers around the world. It's my daily goal to make the team successful in all areas of network support. My main priority is to ensure my team has the tools it needs to provide the best service possible to our Oracle customer base. I act as liaison between Networks and other Lines of Business, to negotiate how we interface, set expectations, and define key processes to ensure success. When there is a major issue to resolve, I act as the Resolution Commander representing the organization and reporting to Executive Staff.
Seize opportunities to help others and build relationships along the way. In the field of technology you will quickly learn that no one can know it all. Building strong relationships are the key to success and longevity. If you build meaningful relationships, your journey in the rapidly changing field of technology will be fun and enjoyable. In my career I've learned the value of going the extra mile to help others, even when it's not my area of expertise. Spending a little extra time researching new technology, staying late to help out, or giving a listening ear can make the biggest difference to the person facing a short deadline.
