Fellow student monkeys,
For those of you who have gone through the recruiting process or are currently going through it - what is your coffee chat conversion rate? How many people that you meet end up pushing your resume or being a referral for you?
I've seen numbers for cold emails vary from 1/10 to 1/5 as far as getting an initial response; sometimes even 1/50 or so, pretty crazy. Do you find most coffee chats to end up successful? My assumption is that once you've finally got them in front of you, it should be relatively "easy" to get to know someone and see if you could get some help or reference about recruiting with their firm.
Maybe your experiences can help others, comment below!
