School-to-Work Program

This program provides eligible student employees the opportunity to pursue higher educational goals while receiving full-time pay/benefits. During the program, student employees also fulfill all requirements and responsibilities of their on-the-job training. Student employees must actively pursue an educational or vocational degree while employed. Eligible applicants may apply at Chickasaw.net/Careers once an advertisement for vacancies has been posted.

On-the-job training provides student employees with specific types of employment opportunities related to their course of study. While working in these positions, student employees receive superior instruction and invaluable work experience. This creates a better prepared Chickasaw to enter the corporate world upon graduation.

Partnering with other departments and businesses within the Chickasaw Nation, the school-to-work program allows the Chickasaw Nation to “grow our own” by providing student employees with real world work experience while attending school.
