We were given responsibilities in terms of developing tools to aid the teams in weekly tasks as well as were responsible for completing tasks set by our line manager
I received wide range of support and guidance from many different aspects of Oracle, our line manager supported us and guided us through the internship as well as aiding in helping find other people that would help us to complete our tasks. We were given a wide range of support access and guidance to problems with a caring attitude and a sense of genuine helpfulness from the manager and team
Due to the covid pandemic there were little face to face activities and events, however, the team did participate in many virtual activities such as a baking challenge as well as a weekly office zoom meeting which was a weekly catch up. Oracle Belfast created a really good atmosphere and sense of togetherness even through the pandemic
I really enjoyed my time at oracle, the work has really developed my programming skills and have allowed me to complete tasks I thought I never could. The team was also very friendly and welcoming and were always there to provide support and to help if I had a problem. Oracle met and exceeded my expectations and I would definitely go back if I had the chance.
