Etiquette Dinner

Join us at the Etiquette Dinner on Tuesday, February 27, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Student Union (Africa Room, 3rd Floor).

You finally have an interview with your dream company and you can’t wait to dazzle them with your polished resume, new suit and impressive portfolio.

But wait, you’re meeting over lunch. No problem, right? You’ve eaten lunch before so you’re all set…as long as you know

  • which way to pass the rolls
  • what to do with your knife when not in use
  • the correct way to place your napkin in your lap
  • which water glass is yours

Believe it or not, knowing the answers to these questions could be the difference between a job offer and a polite, thanks, but no thanks. In today’s competitive job market, more and more employers are taking candidates out for a meal to see how they do in a social situation and being familiar with basic table etiquette can give you the advantage.

Faculty and members of the Duquesne Law Alumni Association Board of Governors will be invited to attend and network with students during dinner.

Registration is required by Wednesday, February 14, at 12:00 noonA registration deposit of $10 (cash or check)* is due at the time of registration.  You may register in the Career Service Office – Room 209.  Registrations may be cancelled until Wednesday, February 11, at 12:00 noon.  (*Upon arrival at the dinner, the $10 deposit will be returned to students.  Students who do not attend the dinner will forfeit their deposit.)  Questions may be directed to Maria Comas at comas@duq.edu.

2018 Mock Interview Program

*Sign-up for mock interviews!  The program will take place from January 17 – February 2, 2018.

*Meet with attorneys and recruiters who volunteer to conduct mock interviews with you at their law firms or at the law school. Each mock interview is approximately 30 minutes: 15-20 minutes for the mock interview and 10-15 minutes for feedback on the student’s resume and interview techniques.

*The schedule will be emailed to students, and mock interview appointments will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by sending an email to comas@duq.edu.

*You may sign up for as many interviews as your schedule permits.

*This is a great way to practice your interview skills, receive feedback about your resume before it counts later this semester or next fall during the On-Campus Recruitment Program, and build your network.   No matter what type of law you’re interested in, this practice will help you!

If you have any questions, please contact Maria Comas at comas@duq.edu.
