There are times nearly every day when we have to make a choice of whether to use good etiquette or possibly risk embarrassment. Good manners can mean the difference between success and failure in many aspects of life. This interactive presentation will equip you with essential skills to help you put your best foot forward and avoid making a faux pas. The session focuses on professional etiquette as it relates to dining, dress/appearance (for job interviews, receptions, etc.), behavior, and communications in the professional world.

We will provide an extensive tutorial on etiquette skills needed when meeting potential employers, colleagues, or others in professional and social networking settings. Whether you are a student, a new graduate, or a professional who has been working for years, the information provided in this session will be useful as an introduction or refresher. Register early, as seating is limited. To register for this event, use the ALA Midwinter registration form. If you have already registered, you may add it to your registration. Use event code: HRD1.
