I know what you are thinking. Why do I need to learn dinner table etiquette? But learning table etiquette can help you excel in business and also in landing the job of your dreams. Many of today’s business meetings, sales meetings, and job interviews take place over the dinner table. Sometimes these meetings are at a restaurant, and other times they are in a corporate dining hall. But, when the big deal or job is on the line that is not the time to realize you do not know which fork to eat your salad with. Join us for this fun and informative evening where you will learn the details of flatware and so much more!
The cost for this 4-course formal meal will be $12.00 payable with credit card or you can stop by the Career Center to pay by cash or check. To pay online visit https://secure.truman.edu/career-s/etiquette Payment is due by September 26, 2014. Limited space is available!
