On Campus Recruiting

Information Sessions & Coffee Chats

Host an Information Session

Information sessions are a great way to promote your company’s opportunities and interact with potential candidates before your interviews. These sessions allow students to get to know your organization beyond the job description. You may also create a specialized session unique to your organization (i.e. alumni panel, interview preparation, simulation, competition, industry-specific panel or presentation).

Recruiting events coordinated through the Center for Career Development are open to Rice students and alumni only. We cannot facilitate the participation or attendance of unaffiliated community members.

Your registration fee includes support from CCD representatives to help you with event set-up, inclusion on the CCD marketing schedule, technology support, and optimized scheduling. Fees are invoiced to employers after event completion.

Host Coffee Chats

Connect one-on-one with Rice talent over a cup of coffee! Coffee chats are an informal recruiting event that take place in the Brochstein Pavilion at the heart of campus and can be hosted with or without a schedule depending on your preferences. Our team is also happy to facilitate virtual coffee chats. We recommend this event to new employers at Rice and to any employers who wish to talk to Rice students individually without the formality of an interview. There is no cost to host.

Coffee chats may be scheduled Mondays through Fridays anytime during business hours (8:30am to 5:00pm). Please review the dates listed above when campus recruiting event requests will not be accepted.


Please contact Shelby Flavin-Rosales ( Recruiting Coordinator & Alumni Liaison, if you have any questions regarding information sessions.
