Oracle Corporation hiring from top Universities

This 2006 Lisa Vaas article in eWeek titled "Oracle Aims for Brand Name Schools for Recruits" notes that Oracle perceives a huge difference between the quality of Universities and suggests that Oracle has higher hiring standards than MySQL or IBM.

"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."

The article says that an Oracle e-mail indicates that Oracle's hiring universities reads like a register of the world's finest Colleges and Universities.  As the world's leading database, it appears that Oracle Corporation knows that people with the drive and persistence to graduate from a good school have the "right stuff" that Oracle needs to stay #1:

"According to the e-mail, Oracle recruits "top candidates" for product development from MIT, Stanford, CMU (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,"

Oracle also offers top graduates their “Oracle Multiple Alternatives Program”:

“This was offered to the college graduates whom they considered the top candidates from each class. The idea was that they could come to Oracle, spend a week or two looking around, visiting all the groups with openings, and then choose any opening they wanted to work in.”

Other top Oracle-related service companies also recognize that a employee who shows the skill, intellect and persistence to graduate from a competitive university is likely to be a great value:

"Graduates from Ivy League schools, retired military professionals, graduates of U.S. Military Academies (Air Force Academy, West Point, Annapolis) and those with active security clearances are highly desirable."
