SOLD OUT! The Etiquette Dinner is full. We hope you can participate in next year's event.



Ticket: $10 for 3 course meal, actual plate cost is about $28 but the Career Center covers the rest!

 The Etiquette Dinner provides employers and students the opportunity to network over a 3-course meal while learning dining and professional etiquette.

All UNC Charlotte students (from all majors) are invited to attend. We hope to have up to 260 students in attendance. We are inviting 1 employer to sit at each table to mingle and network with students. There will be a brief networking event at 5:00pm where you network with employers and fellow students. Then, from 6-7:30 the meal will be served and the Career Center Director, Patrick Madsen, will be conducting the dining etiquette presentation while you enjoy a delicious 3-course meal
