The evening began with passed appetizers, drinks, and a demonstration of proper networking reception etiquette. Students learned some tricks of the trade such as how to balance a plate of appetizers while holding a drink.

|Holding a plate of appetizers as well as a beverage can be tricky, unless you know the proper way to hold them.|
Students were then guided through a delicious seven-course dinner by Kathryn, who directed the students on everything from which (of the 3 - yikes!) forks to use for which course, to what topics are taboo during a lunch or dinner interview.
|The amount of silverware pictured here was a bit daunting, but by the end of the evening, students knew exactly which utensils to use for which course, and what to do with them after they were finished eating.|
|Eating foods like pasta can be tricky, but students learned the proper way to eat without making a mess!|
|Lemon sorbet was served in between the salad and main entree to clear the palette.|

"Good manners never go out of style, so whether you are preparing for the job interview, cultivating client relationships, or developing your networking base as part of a dining experience; proper etiquette is essential." - Kathryn Marshall, Associate Director of Career Services, The Catholic University of America.
