There is no better, or possibly worse, place to make an impression on a prospective employer than the dinner table. Most students 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. Dining tips will be facilitated by a consultant specializing in etiquette, as you enjoy a lunch of soup, salad, your choice of entrée, and dessert. Reservations for this event must be made by March 30 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 $10 deposit (cash or Zip Card meal plan) is required.
