Dining For Success

Do you know which fork is for your salad? Where do you place your napkin when leaving the table? Knowing proper social hour and table manners can be extremely important to your success in the business world. You may be called upon to use your dining skills at job interviews, meetings with your supervisor or clients, or in a networking session such as “Business After Hours” sponsored by a civic or service club. You may be surprised at just how many times you will be put into a situation where you will need to display your dining etiquette. Being knowledgeable and practiced, you will feel confident and at ease in any setting.

Learn how to professionally handle dining situations at the 2011 Dining for Success event. This tutorial dinner teaches students proper etiquette and manners needed to succeed. The event begins with a pre-dinner social with appetizers and beverage. The dinner is a multi-coursed meal followed with dessert and beverage. This event is open to UMD students only and you must register in advance in GoldPASS. Cost per student is $20. Sponsored by UMD Career Services.

UMD LaBounty Entrepreneur Competition
Two for one!  While at UMD, I am sure you have had to come up with new ideas as part of your life here.  Capture just one of them, and give yourself the chance to win $100!  Submit something you are working on for a class, an idea you have had with your student club, or just thought of while you were daydreaming.  This does not need to be something you are committing to pursue - we just want to encourage lots of ideas! All it takes is a one page description - with example summaries on our website!

So, now, take a breath, write it down, and then submit it to LSBE Student Affairs by 3:30 Monday afternoon (Oct.31!).  Also, either download and fill out a registration form to hand in with your idea, or fill out a registration form in Student Affairs (they have plenty of them).

Easy, risk-free, a chance to get professional feedback, and maybe win $100 cash!

If you want more details, please visit our website.
