Career Services Fall Etiquette Dinner is Wednesday, Oct. 28

Marshall University Career Services will have its bi-annual Etiquette Dinner, featuring etiquette consultant Terri Thompson, Wednesday, Oct. 28.

During the four-course meal, Thompson will offer business etiquette tips for handling dinner-time interviews and networking events, along with answering any questions students might have.

“This is an important event for students,” said Debby Stoler, assistant director for development and outreach at Career Services. “They leave with more confidence to handle those sometimes stressful social situations or interviews that include a formal meal.”

All current Marshall students may attend. However, juniors and seniors and grad students are especially encouraged to attend. The dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. in room BE5 located on the lower level of the Memorial Student Center.  Doors open at 6 p.m. Professional dress is required.

Tickets must be picked up in advance at the Career Services’ Center by Monday, Oct. 26. A $5 reservation fee is required but will be refunded at the dinner.

This fall’s Etiquette Dinner is sponsored by a grant from Target.  Up to four representatives from the retailer will attend the dinner and interact with students, as well as share information on Target.

Terri Thompson is an etiquette coach and reinvention expert who started the companies, Etiquette in Action and Swizzle Stick Speaking. Throughout her career, she has helped thousands develop professional poise, confident communication skills and personal polish.
