The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

It has been a fanatastic year! I have learnt something new every day and there hasn’t been a day where I have no wanted to go in.


2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

I felt valued from day one! The HR team as well as everyone else in Oracle made me welcomed and I knew they valued my opinions as they allowed me to get involved in so much.


3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

My manger was fantastic! He knew exactly what a placement year should look like and supported me whenever I waned to get involved in projects etc. The wider team was also amazing.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

You start off quieter, but as you learn more and the year goes on you get busier. I also made sure I reached out to the team if I ever felt I didn’t have enough to do.

Within my first month I was running a cross lob oracle project. I think that shows how much responsibility they gave me.
