An OU graduate, he wants a job in business account management, interacting with customers and making sure they're happy.

His quest for a better job landed him on the pages of SI.com and several national sports blogs as well.

"I wasn't looking for the spotlight," he said. "I just thought I could meet some interesting people, make a few contacts and maybe get some opportunities I wouldn't have had otherwise. I didn't think I'd find my dream job."

Not that parting with the tickets will be too difficult. He paid face value and said he'd pay more than that for another pair, should he find a job from his ad.

"It's disappointing to lose tickets, but I'll probably just head down to the Cotton Bowl and try to find another pair if I give these away," he said.
