How is your dining etiquette? Do you think you have what it takes to make a good first impression on a prospective employee? There is no better, or possibly worse, place to make an impression than the dinner table. Most of us can get through a meal with a friend without even thinking twice about it, but once you’re sitting with a potential employer, the pressure is on.

The Center for Career Management is offering a “crash course” highlighting the basic elements of a full-course meal. Our program this year is being sponsored by the Suarez Corporation and dining tips will be facilitated by a consultant specializing in etiquette and interviewing, as you enjoy a lunch of soup, salad, your choice of entrée, and dessert. Reservations for this event must be made by Monday, February 2, 2009 by 5:00pm through the Center for Career Management, Simmons 301. Seating is limited.

For more information and reservation details contact the Center for Career Management at 330-972-7747 or uaccm@uakron.edu. A $20 deposit (cash or Zip Card meal plan) is required when you register and will be refunded after you attend the event. Those who reserve a meal, but do not attend, will forfeit their $20.
Note: seating is open to new attendees
