DINING ETIQUETTE WORKSHOP HELPS K-STATE STUDENTS BRUSH UP ON TABLE MANNERS FOR KEY JOB INTERVIEWS
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University students are invited to don their professional business attire for K-State's fall Dining Etiquette Workshop.
The workshop, 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, in Derby Dining Center's Gold Room, is an opportunity for students to brush up on their table manners as a way to prepare for possible job interviews that may be conducted over a meal or in a social setting. It is co-sponsored by K-State's career and employment services and department of hospitality management and dietetics.
Pat Pesci, director of K-State's hotel and restaurant management program, will lead the workshop. Conducted over an actual meal, Pesci will point out some of the possible pitfalls that await when trying to interview and dine at the same time.
The cost of the workshop is $9, or $5 for students with a K-State meal plan. Reservations and payment are due Friday, Oct. 30, and can be made by dropping by career and employment services in 100 Holtz Hall or calling 785-532-6506.
