Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.

-Arthur Ashe


The Milgard School of Business is proud to announce the opening of our dedicated career management Success Center. The Center is located in Dougan 290. Career management services will be offered to all Milgard students and alumni. Please sign up with the job-finding web platform Handshake.

2018 Business Etiquette Dinner

The Milgard Success Center is excited to announce the 2018 Business Etiquette Dinner, preparing students for successful work relationships and proper business etiquette!

Which fork, plate, and glass are yours?  What are appropriate dinner conversations? Is drinking alcohol OK during a company dinner? What do you do with a skewer from an appetizer? What if you drop your knife? Can you send a quick text during the meal?

Cybrina Cooper, Talent Acquisition Specialist for Enterprise Holdings, Inc., will guide participants through a fun (yes, fun!) evening of dining etiquette.  You'll get useful tips, tricks to remember table setting placements, and first-hand experience eating difficult foods with grace. 

The event will take place on November 1st, 6:00-8:00 p.m.,
Courtyard by Marriot Tacoma Downtown, 1515 Commerce St.
*$20 fee and registration required (vegan & gluten free options available)
