Callback with coffee invitiation

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 30, 2011 8:58 pm

I received a callback interview and I'm scheduled to go out to coffee with two associates. Should I bring materials (i.e. resume, transcript, etc.) for those associates in addition to the other people I'm interviewing with in the office? Also, does any one have any quick do's or don't regarding the sit down over coffee? Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about it. Just bring a few of each. In my experience, very few people ask for either so you should be fine even if you don't technically have enough for everyone.

I stopped bringing them. And no, you're really just having coffee, it will be weird if you offer them your resume. This is the informal part where you get to interview them. (I think I know which firm this is and they do it instead of post-interview lunch for the afternoon callbacks.)

Agreed. I liked it even better than the meal because you can just talk, and not worry about food/eating logistics. Very informal.
