The HBA of St. Louis & Eastern Missouri's Professional Women in Building Council sponsors an annual dining class for students at an area career and technical education (CTE) high school to provide young employees with etiquette skills that will be helpful in job interviews and in the workplace, the National Association of Home Builders reports.
The course not only teaches students good table manners but also helps them prepare for professional conversations and networking scenarios.
The short course has been well-received by the students, who realize that proper etiquette will be helpful in job interviews and the workplace. "I am glad for the instruction," said one of the participants. "It will make me more comfortable when I have to meet with someone over a meal."
