Employer Coffee Chats

Employer Coffee Chats are 15 to 20-minute one-to-one or mini group sessions with students run by employers at the Careers Service over tea/coffee and biscuits. These sessions, which talk place over a half day, offer you the opportunity to meet with students at the Oxford Careers Service in a familiar and informal environment. 

The content of these sessions is left entirely up to the hosting organisation. You may use the time to see students on a one-to-one basis to review and provide advice on their CVs and applications. Or, you may choose to run a more generic session, where students can approach you with application or interview queries, and any other questions about working at your organisation or within your sector.

Coffee Chats can provide a great opportunity to raise your profile amongst the student body, provide your expert advice, and share information.
