Welcome everyone once again to Weekend Plans in Tulsa — your commute-length podcast about some great events happening every weekend in Tulsa, OK. This episode is for February 1st through the 4th.

Before we get started, I just have to feed the meter to let you know that this podcast is only in existence because of the good folks at OakTree Staffing & Training. Job hunting is totally the pits, so why not let someone else do it for you? Reach out to the friendly career professionals at OakTree and they can help you put your best foot forward straight through that interview door in no time. In addition to helping you land a sweet new gig, OakTree can also help teams all over the country receive top-tier employee training. Microsoft products, development, programming, you name it. If your organization is a Microsoft customer, there’s actually a very good chance that your team can receive Microsoft Certified training at no additional cost. I’d love to tell you more about it, but we have a podcast to get to, so if you’d like to learn more, chat with OakTree online or drop them a message at www.oaktreestaffing.com. Ok, let’s start this show.
