Etiquette Tip of the Week: Sit Anywhere
When meeting or eating, wait for the host to tell you where to sit.
What happens when the host says, "Sit anywhere?" Some scenarios:
Long conference room table
The ends of the table are reserved for the leaders — the highest ranked person sits at the end opposite the door to the room. Select a seat somewhere in the middle. If you are the highest ranked person, it shows humility. If you are not the highest ranked, you won't have to worry about being told to move for someone else.
Dinner party in someone's home
The ends of the table are reserved for the host and hostess. The seat to the right of the host is reserved for a female guest of honor. The seat to the right of the hostess is reserved for a male guest of honor. If you are not any of those, sit somewhere in the middle.
Don't grab the front tables and tip the chairs to save them for your friends, who may or may not be showing up. Find a seat somewhere in the middle of the room. (Never tip chairs, regardless. There's no "I called it" in adult life.)
If an interviewer says, "Sit anywhere," let your interviewer have the best seat — the one facing out into the meeting room or the restaurant, the seat with the best window view, the most comfortable chair, or the one at the end of the conference room table.
In meetings and interviews, sit on the edge of your chair and lean forward to show you are listening. At a dinner party or banquet, sit up straight and bring the food up to you, not your face down to the food.
Let the purpose of etiquette be your guide: make the people around you more comfortable.
