In an effort to help prepare its students for the job market and life after school, Stonehill College in Massachusetts held a Business Etiquette Dinner. The event, which was sponsored by W.B. Mason, an office supply company, was designed to teach students how to make a good first impression in the professional world.
Participants learned from Darinda Ryan-McCann, a professional coach from the Etiquette South of Boston School. Attendees also had the chance to network with W.B. Mason staff.
Lessons addressed topics such as eye contact, handshakes, proper introductions and appropriate behavior as well as dining etiquette tips such as napkin, silverware and cutting positions.
Ryan-McCann, who is the president of the etiquette school, was the founder and chief officer of two financial corporations prior to her current venture.
Stonehill offers business degree programs in accounting, finance, management and marketing. Graduates of these programs could launch lucrative careers in financial management. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that median salaries for professionals in this field range between $77,280 and $134,940 per year.
