I am glad to share this with you all that after a long series of interviews over a period of a month, I finally got the offer from Oracle(India pvt. Ltd.). It was always my dream to work with Oracle, and finally the dream has come true. I would be joining somewhere around early November.

It's just been a short time since I have joined Orafaq forum, but it has given me a wonderful opportunity of learning and sharing. I would like to take the opportunity to thank few people who have greatly motivated me with their expertise on the subject and have had a healthy technical discussion with me a couple of times.

Thank you Michel, Cookiemonster, Barbara, Littlefoot, Kevin, pablolee, Solomon. I hope to learn more and more from you folks.

Thank you Barbara!

It is a P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management project(P6 Analytics). I will be working as a Developer for the upcoming releases, as well as, as an Analyst to find the root cause of the current issues faced by customers using the product and provide the best solution.

I also learnt recently that, few customers use the product with SQL server, and Oracle would stop providing support to them, so the next big thing is DB migration from SQL server to Oracle for such customers.

Everything sounds quite interesting, I am new to analytics. Pretty excited!

Congratulations, man. I know nothing about the bit of Oracle you are joining, but if it is like the bits I worked with for few years, I can say that Oracle likes people who show initiative, work hard, can work in teams, and are in love with the technology (which describes me). Find something interests you, work on it in your own time and spread the knowledge to others, and you can push your career in a direction that you will enjoy. Larry knows that people like me (and, I guess, you) want to work for Oracle - and he exploits this shamelessly. But working for him can be a wonderful opportunity to learn and to teach.
I hope you keep contributing here.

Just wanted to share this good news to all my well wishers and Orafaq folks who have had been in personal touch with me.

As few of you know that I couldn't join Oracle last time due to some unexpected reasons, however, finally Oracle has given me the green flag to join by July '14 as a product developer for their Primavera P6 Analytics product.

I must say that Oracle is not an easy going organization when it comes to salary and compensation, LoL. I didn't know that a full time employment needs several levels of approvals, finally goes to Larry's office for final approval. It's been 8 months that I kept waiting patiently to get this offer. Now I feel ecstatic, a huge relief indeed. It was my passion to work with Oracle. This being a golden opportunity and a turning point in my career. Just need to wait till July mid and I would be an official full time Oracle employee.

Special thanks to Kevin, Barbara and Joy(not mentioning real name Razz ). Thanks folks.

Well done, man. I hope you find (as I always did) that working with Oracle tech staff is really enjoyable. Somehow, Larry manages to recruit people who have a passion for Oracle technology and if you are one of them, there is no better place to be. Over the last three months, I've been running a series of 12c New Features courses, internal for Oracle EMEA Support staff. It has been great fun working with these people, about fifty of them so far (I hope I helped them learn something; they'll be supporting you right now Smile ) If the work ethic is the same where you are, you can look forward to a non-stop love affair with Oracle technology (good luck to your family Confused )
