With the summertime approaching, students find relief knowing their stress level will decline. Students will be able to enjoy the sunshine, unwind and rather then being consumed by homework, enjoy that novel that has been sitting on the bookshelf for months. Even though summertime takes away college anxiety there is still something that lurks around the corner: next semester. Along with the approaching classes students still have to be financially conscience and help their parents save money. How can students do this? By getting a job at the university.
Students can find jobs being offered at OU by simply going to the website jobs.ou.edu. There, click on search listings and find a job that appears interesting. There is an online OU job application students can fill out and use for several different positions.
There are a variety of jobs offered at OU that can go a long with any major. Not only are the parents being helped out financially, but it great experience and something that can be put onto a resume after graduation.
By having a job during college, students will get the satisfaction and fulfillment by earning a little extra spending money and not emptying out their parent’s wallets.
