These sessions are an increasingly essential component of the job search and interview process, particularly if the job requires a certain standard of conduct with clients and supervisors. Feeling comfortable interacting with people at a business luncheon can make or break an opportunity and leave a lasting impression.

The three-hour dining etiquette workshop aims to inform participants of the essential social skills and manners required in a formal dining setting. The event is hosted by a Memorial alumnus and a three-course meal is served while students learn about etiquette and networking.

Participants are asked to dress as though they were invited to an interview and seating will be assigned. Each table will represent a mix of employers, alumni, students, and representatives from Career Development & Experiential Learning.

Tickets are $30 for students. To get more information about the event please contact:
