It is organized by Career and Student Employment Services for WMU undergraduate and graduate students. Registration is required.

The seminar portion of this career-preparation event allows students to pick up pointers for avoiding social gaffes during such common business situations as mealtime meetings and interviews. The dinner portion of the evening gives participants a chance to practice their newly learned skills.

While dining, the students will network with representatives from employers who are sponsoring this year's event.
