So I emailed my friend who works in Housing at OU about possible employment. Here is her reply:
Does she have a Master's? Does she WANT a Master's?
full-time staff is Master's preferred. HOWEVER, we have some pretty
sweet gigs for someone who wants to go back to school. It is a
considered a graduate position, but it is room and board, tuition
waiver, and stipend.
Outside of Housing Dept. I would say it is
still pretty fierce competition without a graduate degree. They're
really turning up the heat on that...
Check jobs.ou.edu for more info.
This might be a way for you to get a job, get a master's, AND get free housing!
