Dining Etiquette can be critical to career and job search success. Employers want to see you in social situations to observe how you conduct yourself, particularly if the job you want requires a certain standard of conduct with clients and superiors. You could be critically scrutinized on your table manners and conduct. On a practical level, interviews that last for several hours extend through mealtimes, and the employer is gracious to host you for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The meal is a time to visit and interact; this is always more important than the function of eating.
