Outclass the Competition Dining Skills
The pressure of knowing that a hiring decision could rest partially on your dinner performance is anxiety-producing! A keen mind, good appearance, and nice personality will not outweigh poor table manners. An invitation to a meal means that you are under strong consideration, and, by extension, intense scrutiny. Your social graces and general demeanor at the table can tell as much about you as your answer to a question. Whether you are at a dinner party, conducting an interview, or exploring a new culture, being familiar with the rules of dining etiquette can help to increase your professionalism in unfamiliar situations. Most interviewees think that the meal is a time to relax and chat it up with your interviewer, however, this could not be further from the point. When an organization hosts a meal during an interview, they are assessing how you conduct yourself, your knowledge of etiquette and standard dining practices, and they are also looking to see how you will conduct yourself when meeting with clients and higher-ups in the company. By reviewing the dining etiquette basics, you’ll be able to breeze through an interview meal and increase your desirability to the company.
Who should attend?
Development officers; any level of employee, from those in career-fast track programs to upper-level managers; anyone who hosts business meals or attends business meals and fundraiser events with clients, customers, and prospects.
