Dining Skills – Young Adults
Do you believe that your table manners could stand between you and your dream job or between you and your dream date? It may seem unfair, but many people have missed out on jobs and dates because when sharing a meal they demonstrated horrible manners.

Description: Why would an employer care whether or not you know how to hold a fork? The competition for good jobs can be fierce and employers look for the entire package when hiring. Not only do they seek people who can do the job, they look for people who are poised, self-assured and capable of representing the company in the best light possible. Someone with dismal table manners simply can’t be sent out with a client. And that is a deal breaker. Good table manners show respect for others.
