    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • On a day to day basis I have team calls, fascinating training and creative tasks involving email and post writing. Interviews with sales reps and employees at Oracle and also creative asset creation for communications posts.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Since starting at Oracle I have had many opportunities to work on and develop skills. Some of these include my communication, written and technological skills. When I began my placement I explained how my written skills were my weakest area, and my team and have been really great at pushing me to work on this and now I feel much more confident. I have also participated in many toastmaster sessions which have been a huge help with my public speaking.

    Responsibilities

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • Although we were given a lot of freedom we were also provided with many support systems. Our internship coordinator Maisy was a huge help throughout our time with the company. She arranged zoom calls with all the interns twice a week and development sessions. Also my manager was an incredible help and I always knew I could come to her, and the same with my team.
