CareerFest 2014

Located in Columbus, this is a large career fair that is a fantastic opportunity for students. A great networking chance, students can meet potential employers and learn more about who is hiring.

Attend CareerFest 2014 on Friday, February 7th, 2014 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

Also, if you are interested in transportation to the event, stop into the CE&D Offices to sign up for a seat on a Denison van. There will be two vans going to CareerFest - one leaving at 11am (returning at 1:30) and the second van leaving at 12:30pm (returning at 3:00).

Etiquette Tip of the Week

"What do I do with my other hand?" College and graduate students and people in business often ask me that in a dining tutorial. If you are having soup, what happens to that hand not holding the spoon?


You may put the other hand in your lap or rest your wrist or even your forearm on the edge of the table.


What about elbows? If you grew up being told, "Keep your elbows off the table," there is an exception to that rule. (Sorry, Grandmas!)

When you are between courses and there is no food on the table, you may put your elbows on the table. Usually, you do that in those big banquet meals where there is a lot of background noise in the room and you lean forward on your elbows so you can converse with a person on the other side of the round 8-top or 10-top table.

You may not put your elbow on the table if the purpose is to prop up your tired head.

Fun App of the Week

Ipad User? Download "Prezi," for free on the apple app store. This app allows you to jazz up presentations and make them more interactive than a regular PowerPoint. Easy to use and learn, Prezi is worth a download so that you can create and present your presentations outside of your computer.
