Career Preparation Etiquette Dinner

Gain important skills for your future career!

As our international students look toward graduation, the Center for International Affairs wants to help them prepare for job search and career success! Job interviews often include a meal with potential colleagues, and many companies ask employees to take clients out for nice dinners. Employers want to know their employees can be professional, even in social situations, as dining with others can be very challenging. Learning Western expectations of politeness can help you feel more comfortable eating unfamiliar foods, and mastering dining rules can help you make a great impression on others!

During the Career Preparation Etiquette Dinner, an etiquette consultant leads Case Western Reserve international students through a three-course meal, sharing information to help them feel confident in a formal dinner setting while also providing useful tips for starting conversations in social business situations, navigating networking events where food and drinks are served, and a variety of other topics! 

The event is held annually during the spring semester.
