Employers want to observe candidates in social situations to see how you conduct yourself. Lots of positions require a certain standard of conduct with clients, coworkers and superiors. You could be critically scrutinized on your table manners and conduct. One specific instance in which candidates are under the microscope is interviews. In many cases, interviews can last for several hours and extend through mealtimes. The employer often hosts you for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The meal is a time to visit and interact. The Etiquette Dinner is a great way for you to make your first professional contacts while getting familiar with dining in a formal setting. Professional attire is required.
Steps to register for the ETIQUETTE DINNER:
First establish your account or login using the Careers for Mountaineers database. After you have successfully logged in or created your account for the first time, click on the link at the top of the entire program that says "Career Events". Select "Career Fair" and hit "Search". Click on "Etiquette Dinner" and proceed with registration. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mariah Green at 970-943-7122, firstname.lastname@example.org.
