Continuing an interview over lunch or dining with your new boss can be quite a daunting experience. Not knowing what to
order from the menu or how to eat certain foods may leave you feeling uncomfortable and insecure. With good table manners and an knowledge of dining etiquette you will be seen as an educated and confident member of the team. Our college dining program teaches students about their individual place setting, the correct placement and use of the flatware and glasses and of course, modern table manners. There are five main styles of dining but we concentrate on the subtle differences between US and European dining. Your table manners, appropriate behavior and good conversational skills will be noticed and remembered.
After students master the appropriate dining and communication skills, they will be comfortable attending
any business meal, not to mention boosting their social status with friends and family!
