Job Search – Brush Up Your Interview Dining Etiquette
Interview dining etiquette -I came across this subject and at first I laughed. Then I realised it makes a valuable point. Your table manners and your dining etiquette skills really do matter. They are one reason why employers interview job candidates during lunch or dinner – to evaluate their social skills and to see if they can handle themselves gracefully under pressure. It’s especially true when you’re interviewing for a job where you’ll have a lot of social interaction with clients.
The post on interview dining etiquette at this link gives you some great advice, although it doesn’t tell you how to eat a pear. My mother used to say knowing how to eat a pear was the real test of a gentleman.
