Coffee & Careers Program


The Coffee & Careers Program yields a high return on a small investment: just an hour of conversation can shape a student's life path. 


Through the Coffee & Careers Program, a student meets informally with an employee or retired professional working in the student's fields of interest. The jobholder shares their background, work experience, and career choices while illuminating their field and its pros and cons. The student can ask questions and explore how the career fits with their areas of interest and aptitude.
