Oracle Corporation is hiring


Oracle Corporation has announced that they are now hiring the "best and the brightest" college seniors:

“We [Oracle] specialize in recruiting the best and brightest to power the Internet and Grid Technology.”

“Graduates and prospects around the world use this snapshot of the Oracle development organization to guide their interest in future employment with the world's largest enterprise software company.”

Before you rush out and tell your friends at the local community college, be aware that Oracle places a high regard for a good education from a competitive university. 

Oracle, being a top-notch company, is quite selective about hiring, preferring to choose employees who have distinguished themselves by graduating from a challenging university:

"unless you're coming out of MIT, Stanford or another of a handful of brand-name tech universities, you're very likely out of luck.

Better go try MySQL or IBM instead. . .

According to the e-mail, Oracle recruits "top candidates" for product development from MIT, Stanford, CMU (likely Carnegie Mellon University), Princeton, Wisconsin, Yale, Dartmouth, Brown, Caltech, Berkeley, Harvard and Cornell.

In addition, the e-mail continues, Oracle will consider "top candidates" from the University of Texas Austin, Duke, Penn, Georgia Institute of Technology (grad students) and "any top international schools,"

Graduating from a good college seems to be the most important factor for Oracle professionals getting a great first job at Oracle Corporation:

“We see that advanced masters and professional degrees are a great investment, and those who pursue post Bachelors degrees can earn millions of dollars more than those with a BA or BS degree”

This US government article notes that Engineers earn the most while Educations majors earn the least:

"Those working full time in engineering earned the highest average monthly pay ($4,680), while those with education degrees earned the lowest ($2,802) in 1996."

This MSN study notes that those who complete professional degrees can expect to earn more than a million dollars over those without a college degree. 

  • Education and Social Science lag behind in earnings - Those with Education degrees earn $200 thousand dollars less than the average for bachelors degree.  Social science majors earn $98k less than average, and nearly $400 less than computer scientists and engineers.
