Some 100 George Mason University students and alumni got valuable etiquette and networking tips last Friday, and a chance to apply them in real time, with real potential employers.
Not only did the students learn which fork to use first and when to begin eating, they also learned to put the nametag on the right side (not the left) and how to read body language when engaged in conversation.
The sold-out, three-course meal with 18 “networking hosts” took place at George Mason’s Arlington Campus during a Graduate and Professional Student Networking and Etiquette Dinner. The networking dinner was coordinated byUniversity Life Arlington.
The hosts represented a range of industries and organizations, including nonprofits, government agencies, associations, investment companies, real estate brokerages and law firms.
