Oracle has the distinction of being the world’s largest business software company. For over a quarter of a century, Oracle has been producing the software that has shaped the technology of businesses around the world. Oracle has reported steady growth despite the economic downturn: in summer 2008, it created a global business unit to develop software applications for the health care industry.
Oracle prides itself on providing a livable work style for its employees. A casual dress code and an extensive “campus” replete with cafés, state-of-theart exercise facilities and a club room are some of the perks, as well as social activities arranged for interns.
When it comes to internships, Oracle provides opportunities to assist people from all backgrounds in exploring careers at a technology company, even those careers not often associated with technology. The internships help with the development of up-to-date skills that are needed in today's workplace. Interns work on real projects, including:
