Educator Coffee Chat Series

In an attempt to create a regularly occurring opportunity for Career Services professionals to meet, connect and collaborate, we’re pleased to introduce ‘Coffee Chats’, an hour-long conference call series.  Each Coffee Chat will have a hot topic that will be moderated by a member of the CACEE Canada West Regional Advisory Board but will also have an open forum to ask questions on any topic.

This Coffee Chat series is intended to be an interactive, collaborative session and we want to ensure all participants are able to ask lots of questions to get the most out of Coffee Chats. While you are welcome to ask questions during the call, you can also tweet questions to @followcacee using the hashtag #learnwithCACEE both prior and during these sessions.
