How can we help you?

  • What does a company lunch look like?

    Although it varies from company to company a typical lunch starts with a brief introduction of the company by the lunch host and ofcourse yourself! and getting to know the lunch attendees. You may also be offered a tour of the office, given the chance to discuss the company’s mission, product and challenges, eat lunch and meet with the team. Lunch is casual so its up to you how much you want to get out of it and make sure to share contact information with people you click with.

    company mission, products, solutions, challenges, milestones, job orientation and then networking with potential coworkers over lunch. Lasting from 45-90 minutes.

  • Who pays for lunch:

    Again, this may differ depending on the company. We are making every effort for companies to provide lunch for free but in some cases employees may not be able to offer lunch, the attendees will pay for themselves. In that case, there are many options for food delivery and LetsLunch can help to find a deal or coupon for your meal. Of course, the most important part of lunch is getting a chance to connect with your host and their company, a free lunch is just the cherry on top.

    We are making every effort to have every company lunch paid by employers but in some instances attendees will pay for it and in that case letslunch will find a great deal/coupon for it.

  • How is LetsLunch different to traditional job search methods?

    Traditional job search methods involve a standard procedure or application through referral or job boarding postings, then phone screens, then project challenges and onsite interviews. LetsLunch involves a more proactive method of job seeking where you are provided a glimpse of the company’s mission, work and team dynamics during an in-office lunch. Before you apply or do any work, you can see for yourself whether the chemistry is there.

    Its all about the introduction over a casual social lunch and not an interview to see if there’s any chemistry. If not, there is no point in moving to the next level which is more technical and time/energy consuming (for both sides) before even knowing if you like company’s mission, work, and team’s general vibe.
