The Interview Meal

Continuing an interview over lunch, dining with your boss or attending a first business meal can be quite daunting. Bad dining habits will make a lasting impression but good table manners and an understanding of proper dining etiquette will prepare students to navigate future business meals as well as boosting their status in social settings. Our college dining program introduces students to the protocols of table etiquette, an understanding of their place setting and the correct use of flatware. There are five main

styles of dining but we will concentrate on the subtle differences between US and European dining. Conducting oneself appropriately at the table will be noticed!  



  • Client or Host?

  • Ordering from a Menu

  • US and European Dining Styles

  • Your "BMW" Table Map

  • Understanding Your Place Setting

  • Handling Your Flatware Correctly

  • Napkin & Passing Etiquette

  • Posture at the Table

  • "Working" at Business/Social Events




                                           DINE WITH CONFIDENCE



Business cocktail events and Meet & Greet evenings held "after hours"are still part of the working day and should be treated as such. They are wonderful ways to connect with peers and forge professional friendships but can be a disaster if handled the wrong way. Discover how to make these events work for you and not be a night you wish to forget.
