SIGN UP NOW!: Professional Etiquette Dinner for Seniors

TODAY! Tuesday, May 20, 5:30–7:00pm, Oberlin Inn

It’s NOT too late to register! SIGN UP BY NOON at http://oberlin-senior-etiquette.eventbrite.com!!!

Why are meals part of interviews?
What is an appropriate way to explain a food allergy?
How do I eat and answer questions at the same time?
What if I get something stuck in my teeth?

Come get answers to these and other burning questions about dining etiquette at the Professional Etiquette Dinner for Seniors.

The dinner will be led by Robert A. Shutt, a recognized expert on business and dining etiquette who presents on a national level. He has been featured on the CBS Evening News and is the author of Shine While You Dine, a concise guide to business dining etiquette.

Granted, you’re probably not lying awake at night wondering which fork to use to eat your salad, but would you know how to tell your new boss that she has spinach in her teeth without causing undue embarrassment? Or what if you’re out after work with your new colleagues, and everyone’s standing a round of drinks, but you can’t afford to reciprocate? These are just a few of the business-etiquette scenarios that have come up in the past.

Take a short break from finals to share your own burning etiquette questions here. We’ll compile everyone’s questions and pass them along to Robert Shutt at the end of the day Friday, so that he can be sure to cover them during his presentation Tuesday evening.


Questions? Contact the Career Center at 440.775.8140, or career.center@oberlin.edu

Weekly Working Session TODAY

How to Actually Enjoy Networking

Wednesday, April 30th from 4:30-5:30 in the Career Center Conference Room

Do you keep hearing about the importance of networking, but feel awkward about approaching people you don’t know? Come to this session to learn how to initiate and develop effective networking relationships, whether it’s by phone, email, or in person. This session will also help you to prepare for upcoming opportunities to connect with alumni/ae and parents on campus this spring.

__________
Weekly Working Sessions at the Career Center are a rotating series of working sessions covering the fundamentals of your career preparation. These sessions are designed to address the preliminary questions most Oberlin students ask in their first consultations with advisors. Attending these sessions helps you jump-start progress on important topics and tasks, so you can focus your one-to-one time with advisors on the more personalized work related to your strategies and documents.

Weekly Working Sessions will take place in the Career Center Conference Room every Tuesday at 12:30pm and every Wednesday at 4:30pm. Check our calendar [oberlin.edu/career/calendar.html) for the specific topics covered each week.

Each session will consist of a half-hour presentation followed by an (optional) half hour of guided hands-on work. Bring your laptop and a friend - we’ll supply the snacks!
