Employer coffee chats (or office hours) allow for employers and students to connect informally for one-on-one or small group conversations. Coffee chats are open sign-up interviews that allow any students that are interested in learning more about your organization to sign up for an interview on a first come, first served basis. During coffee chats, students reserve a 15 or 20-minute timeslot to meet with your organization’s representatives. Separate from interviews, these conversations are intentionally informal and allow students to learn more about your organization, receive feedback on their resume, ask about your application process, and practice for interviews.
To advertise your Coffee Chats to our students on Handshake, you may submit them as an interview schedule (if you would like students to select time slots through Handshake) or an information session (if you are using your own scheduling platform). You may schedule your coffee chats in the On-campus recruiting suite or at a local coffee house found here.
