Manners matter. And good manners not only matter, they can be essential in landing that new job. Small things – like a hand-written thank you note following an interview – can leave a positive impression with a potential employer. That was the lesson for graduating seniors at an etiquette seminar designed to give Malone University graduates the edge as they enter the job market and launch post-college careers. Seminar speakers were Sue Grabowski and Bob Pacanovsky.
