Sponsored by the Office of Career Services and the Office of Alumni Relations, join some UMW alumni along with President and Rose Hurley to learn all you need to know about presenting yourself well to prospective employers and co-workers while enjoying a six course meal. Don’t know which fork to use? Don’t know where to place your napkin? Who orders first? How do you make small talk? We will discuss these topics and more at this fun, interactive session on dining and professional etiquette.

Registering for this event constitutes your commitment to attend. The purpose of this event is to help you learn to conduct yourself professionally in the workplace and elsewhere. We would be remiss in our duties to you as students if we did not let you know that failing to attend any meal or other business (or social) appointment to which you commit, without calling to cancel, is considered extremely discourteous to other individuals. Please recall that for this event, significant expense is funded by our generous sponsors. Tables are set, seating assignments made, and dinner is prepared. When individuals no-show, this impacts and is a discourtesy to hosts, planners, sponsors, and the other students assigned to be seated at the same table. True emergencies, which are rare, with prompt contacts to explain, are understood. Changing ones mind about attendance at the last minute does not constitute an emergency.
