Back by popular student demand, professional development and etiquette expert Sharon Abrahams will teach students the important, yet often unspoken skills of workplace professionalisms. The evening will sharpen your networking and business etiquette skills, help you identify and understand work place expectations, and offer concrete tips to help ensure successful summer evaluations. Students will have the unique opportunity to put these skills into practice with employers from across the country. The evening will conclude with additional instructions over a three-course meal concerning how to successfully navigate the often tricky “dining room interview.”
