What positions run during the summer months and which are during the school year?

How many position openings are available for each?

What is the interview process?
Interested students must first attend an info share to learn about the various positions, pay rates and the application process. Second, students may then fill out the online application. One application will be used to apply for multiple positions. Once the applications have been reviewed, a limited number of students will be called back for a large group interview. From there, the applicants will participate in individual interviews and further group sessions with either the Center for Multicultural Initiatives and/or Orientation and New Student Programs.
Can I take classes and work at the same time? (How many credits do I need to take to be eligible?)
Since the Orientation Group Leader position is a full-time position between May and August, students cannot take classes during Summer Session 1 but are allowed to take one class during Summer Session 2. CMI require students to be a full-time OU student while employed.
What if I cannot attend an info share?
If you cannot attend an info share please contact the appropriate office that presides over the position you wish to apply to. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
What should I wear to the Group Process?
Showcase your OU Spirit by wearing OU gear. Please dress comfortably and in casual attire. You will be moving around.
What should I wear to the interview?
