This month, give a big chomp for Oracle in Redwood Shores, Calif., and the 162 Gators who have been hired by the multinational cloud computing corporation since 2016.
If you yell “2 Bits!” at work, do your coworkers know what to yell back? Do your office parties always include orange-and-blue decorations? Is it understood that happy hours must take place at a restaurant that broadcasts Gator games? Gator Nation News celebrates companies that purposely strive to hire UF alumni. Does your workplace fit the bill? Please tell us about it in an email to email@example.com.
What Oracle managers say
“As a senior director … I’ve experienced a lot of college grads from all over the country, and UF alumni continue to be atop that list each year,” said Ben Grant-Roy, a senior director of sales. “We take on a lot students who are consistently going the extra mile during their four years …. It’s not a surprise some of our top talent in an organization of 800+ come from UF.”
