Professionalism skills on the menu at dining etiquette workshop

MANHATTAN -- Brushing up on your p's and q's before that big job interview may be a good way to make a first impression, especially if the interview will take place over a meal.

That's where Kansas State University's fall dining etiquette workshop can help. Students are invited to learn some of the pitfalls to avoid at the dining table during a job interview meal. The workshop, sponsored by career and employment services, will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, in the Derby Dining Center's Gold Room.

On the menu will be ways to make a positive impression when dining with employers. Participants will engage in a variety of exercises to learn communication, interpersonal and dining skills to use when meeting with a potential employer or other business professionals.

The workshop is open to all Kansas State University students. The deadline to register is by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, at career and employment services, 100 Holtz Hall. The cost, which includes a full-course meal, is $11, or $7 for students on a K-State meal plan.
