Professional Etiquette

“You never get a second chance to make a first impression”

The two years of the MBA Program are filled with alumni visits, company information sessions, interviews, career fairs, and many other events that involve networking and, consequently, making a good first impression.   Your increased awareness of professional etiquette is an absolutely essential component in managing the impressions you make on employers.

Professional etiquette involves dressing appropriately for business functions, preparing sufficiently for corporate presentations and discussions, asking thoughtful questions, listening effectively, maintaining eye contact when engaging in conversation, and a host of other interpersonal behaviors.

To this end, this section is dedicated to addressing those behaviors that can profoundly impact an employer’s initial impression of you.  For a better understanding, the Dress for Success brochure is going to answer some of your questions in a more visual manner.
