Dine | Dress | Interview
Corporate Sponsorship

February 21, 2018

Event Background
Wichita State University’s Career Development Center combines tradition with innovation and takes learning out of the classroom and into the real world. Our mission is to empower, educate and serve the many diverse students on campus. This population includes students from right here in Wichita to those who attend WSU from across the state, nation and world! These great students come from different upbringings and socioeconomic backgrounds.

While working with our diverse student population, our center realized that every student, no matter what their background, needed guidance on how to act, what to say and how to dress in a professional dinner setting. Students wanted to know the answers to these questions:
• What do you do when introduced to a group of professionals?
• When is it appropriate to use a cell phone during a business social event?
• How are you expected to dress when interviewing?
• What fork are you supposed to use, anyway?

Our desire to educate and empower WSU students on how to act, what to say and how to dress in a professional business setting led to the creation of Dine | Dress | Interview.

About the Event
Over a four-course meal at the Wichita Country Club students learn the essentials of professional dress and how to shop for professional dress on a college students budget, how to dine with refinement in a business professional setting, and how to interview with confidence and knowledge.

The dining ambience at the Wichita Country Club gives WSU students a business/corporate dining experience that will help them succeed in their future professional settings.

The event will host a total of 110 WSU students.
