If it’s Labor Day Weekend, then you KNOW it’s time for college football! Fans across the country will be donning their team colors this weekend and in Oklahoma, that means a sea of Crimson & Cream will be crashing into a wall of Black & Orange… and Chesapeake Energy is right in the middle of this mayhem.
“Chesapeake is proud to provide generous support to both OU and OSU in the form of scholarships, professorships, capital gifts and athletic support,” says Amanda Horvath, Community Relations Specialist. “We are very active recruiters at both schools. This fall we will be attending career fairs, holding information sessions about Chesapeake and conducting on-campus interviews for both internships and full-time opportunities.”
OU – the week of September 10th
OSU – the week of September 17th
Chesapeake has a history of encouraging their employees to support these two Oklahoma schools (especially during Bedlam!), and last spring they took it up another notch by inviting each school to their Oklahoma City campus for special events. “The coaches each talked about their athletic programs and introduced us to some of their star players,” said Briana Steelman, Retail Buyer at Chesapeake. “They really got us fired up for this season… and it was only April!”
To kick the season off right, Chesapeake worked with ROBYN to create a slew of products that feature the school logos co-branded with the Chesapeake logo. Coolers, tumblers, jackets and shirts… custom designs on the coolest products… with officially licensed collegiate branding. Now, that’s a winning combination!
These items are being added exclusively to the Chesapeake Energy company store website for employees to purchase for themselves (or for their close friends… hint, hint). “By the time Bedlam rolls around, the store will be crazy busy,” said Briana.
Regardless of who you support… Here’s to the return of College Football!
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
