Etiquette Dinner Offers Professional Advice

SOCORRO, N.M. March 20, 2013 – Which fork to use? What is appropriate attire for a company barbecue? What’s the appropriate manner to eat spaghetti?

The Career Services Office will answer all those questions and many more at the Etiquette Dinner and Fashion Show on Tuesday, March 26.

“Students can expect to learn how to handle themselves and how to present themselves in the best manner,” Director of Student Services Lillian Armijo said. “If you have a great cover letter and resume, but you don’t make a successful first impression at a dinner or in a meeting, that’s a real detriment.”

Techies are invited to attend the event in the third floor ballroom of the Fidel Center. The event starts at 6 p.m. and students must register beforehand. Call 5060, email larmijo@admin.nmt.edu or stop by the Student Affairs Office in Fidel Center to register.

Members of various campus clubs will be modeling attire for business casual, business professional, office barbecue and professional evening gala.

“The interview is more than just the interview,” Armijo said. “Students need to recognize that the interview starts when they enter the parking lot and doesn’t end until they drive away. This is some thing they should know because they are being watched by potential employers. This is a must for students who will be doing on-site interviews, which usually includes lunch or dinner.”

In addition to instructions on how to navigate a place setting and how to approach difficult-to-eat food, Armijo will also discuss what foods to avoid and which dishes to consider. There will be door prizes as well as great food and fun.

“Students at one time or another will be faced with these situations,” Armijo said. “They need to know how to handle themselves.”

The cost is one meal plan swipe or $9. The meal will begin with a Mediterranean salad and bread. The main course will be roasted chicken with dried plums and honey, served with lemon saffron rice and dill glazed baby carrots. Dessert will be the delicious tres leches cake.
