Guest Speaker: Susan Timko
Career Consultant, Carnegie Mellon University

The Business Club at Penn State New Kensington is providing the keys to unlock the doors to a career. A professional etiquette dinner is set from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30, in the campus Conference Center.

The event is designed as a workshop on proper business dinner etiquette and on best practices for networking and handling of awkward social situations. The guest speaker is etiquette expert Susan Timko, career consultant at Carnegie Mellon University, who will present dining and business etiquette tips for the interactive dinner. The focus is how to handle an interview that includes a meal.

"The dinner is a useful experience for students who are interested in learning etiquette in a fun and no risk situation," said Grant Schoenfelder, president of the Business Club. "I encourage the students to take advantage of this opportunity to help their chances during the job-finding process."

Co-hosted by the Career Services Office and organized by Schoenfelder, the annual show is the club’s signature event. The dinner is sponsored by the Alle-Kiski Society of the Penn State Alumni Association.

The etiquette dinner is open to the public. Tickets are $15 for Penn State students and $20 for the general public and can be obtained in advance in Career Services, located in the Student Union, on the lower level of the Activities Building or outside the student government office in Café 780.
