"Keep your elbows off the table" and more

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

At the fall Dining Etiquette Workshop, Pat Pesci will point out some of the  pitfalls possible when dining and being interviewed at the same time.

Pesci is director of K-State's hotel and restaurant management program.

Students are invited to don their professional business attire for the workshop, 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, in Derby Dining Center's Gold Room. It is an opportunity for students to brush up on their table manners as a way to prepare for  job interviews that may be conducted over a meal or in a social setting.

Co-sponsors are K-State's career and employment services and Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics.

The cost of the workshop is $9, or $5 for students with a K-State meal plan. Reservations and payment are due Friday, Oct. 30, and are available at career and employment services in 100 Holtz Hall or by calling 785-532-6506.
