Orange Juice, finally

Orange Juice

This is a follow-up post from Sandwich and Olive Salad and which has been placed in the new category Practical Training 2009.

Well, I nearly had made up my mind to go for Olive Salad for the Practical Training 2009 and was preparing the form to be submitted to our Programme Co-ordinator. All of a sudden, we grabbed the attention of Orange! The latter was the third offer and the pending one.

At the last minute, there was the possibility of setting up an appointment at a very cool location 😀 Damn driving during the night is not fun and especially when there are Police Traffic people everywhere telling you to give priority to the damn VIP people going to Domaine Anna.

Finally we reached our destination (despite the small deviation to Albion Lighthouse , eihhh) and we were on time (pat on the shoulders)!

At the reception, we were welcomed by the Manager and we had a seat to start the meeting. Well, there was description of what is the role and function of the backoffice services and the intention to implant the corporate service in Mauritius. The key terms were: Corporate services, KPI, Business Intelligence, Availability, Best Practice, date warehouse, reporting, supply chain, inventory control, Nokia, Wal-Mart, competence, global company, Romania, Germany, France Telecom, Orange Business Services

There was a high level of business jargon being used (in French). The theory from Operations Management, which we learnt at University was applicable. Below are some videos related to the main topic of the meeting:

RFID in Supply Chain

Service Performance Mgt

The main stuff that impressed me was that the profile of the Manager was something that I am -> Business acumen complemented with knowledge in the IT industry. Having a look at my CV, he told me that for the setting up of the team, candidates with such profiles are required. Then my question: Are we expected to work with the technicalities of networking (CCNA stuff)? Happily the answer was No.

The decision

Now that I have all three very good Practical Training opportunities, I have to choose one. Its a choice difficult to make since each one would provide a different career path. I asked my ‘chauffeur’ : If you get three love letters from girlfriends which each one possess the required qualities that you desire, which one would you choose? 😀

    Lol…Don’t mix love and work…take decisions base on your intuition and what you want to achieve at end result? What you want to learn,experience?

    And if it happened to have proposal from 3 different girls, you can’t be sure all three have same qualities as law of variation; nothing is identical even in love. And if three guys propose me,Id reject all three as I may not love them even if they have my perfect man profile where there are only 3 criteria(honesty,openness,loyalty).To be able to accept someone you should love him first or at least interested not in his butt or pocket but personality. That’s first condition.

    And for your practicum, to choose your first condition is your level of interest in both. The one that triggers the most interest is the one you’ll be more keen to learn and you’re sure to experience good things.
