A very late happy new year to you, friends! This is Ken from OakTree Staffing & Training to present a new version of the same podcast you know — only slightly modified. Yes, Weekend Plans in Tulsa & OKC is now Weekend Plans in Tulsa. In the new year, we decided to drill down on our home city and bring you more great Tulsa events in less time. If you’re an Oklahoma City native, this is your invitation to pick up that torch and we’d to hear it. As for us, we’re sticking with what we know and that’s Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Before we shove off, I just want to let you know who’s to blame for this podcast and that would be OakTree Staffing & Training right here in the 918. If you’re on the lookout for a new job or your current gig is starting to make you itch, the friendly career professionals at OakTree provide the foot-in-the-door you need to find a career that’s more up your alley. On the other side of the coin and the office, OakTree is also a Microsoft Certified Learning Partner, which is just fancy talk for “if your company is a Microsoft customer, there’s a good chance we can provide Microsoft training for your team on Microsoft’s dime.” To find out more about how OakTree Staffing & Training can help you thrive, head on over to https://www.oaktreestaffing.com/
