Office of the State Treasurer

Jordan Albert spent his break from the University of Tulsa in a windowless room on the second floor of the state Capitol. It’s a summer job, but it’s more suit-and-tie than swimsuit-and-suncreen.

Albert is triple-majoring in finance, accounting and economics, but he says spending his summer in state government might have changed his career path.
