The Chickasaw Nation employs thousands of people in its many tribal facilities and diverse businesses. From life skills training to career counseling and transportation programs, the Nation supports its citizens in reaching their full potential.
Chickasaw citizen Jeff Burger has experienced some major changes in his life. After switching careers several times, this husband and father moved his family from California to Oklahoma to seek further job opportunities. However, the stress of his various commitments started to weigh on him, and that’s when Jeff joined the Chickasaw Nation's School-to-Work program, a unique opportunity that allows Chickasaws to be full-time tribal employees with benefits while also attending college. Now, Jeff is a public relations major and is greatly enjoying working with the marketing team at Remington Park.
