Career Services presents the 9th Annual Professional Etiquette Dinner. This event provides attendees an entertaining and engaging professional and social development opportunity. A four-course meal and professional dining seminar will be presented by Merrily Bjerkestrand. Ms. Bjerkestrand is a CWU graduate and the owner of the Northwest School of Protocol located in Spokane, Washington.  She has presented seminars and developed programs for corporations, universities, and independent firms in both the public and private sectors.  Her programs build strong foundations of civility, professional and personal polish, and leadership skills.

New this year, pre-dinner networking event! Ms. Bjerkestrand will teach you how to give your “elevator speech” while balancing your plate and drink in one hand and verbal resume in the other. Local employers will be there to give feedback.
