Etiquette matters, whether you’re in a business or a social context. It’s not necessarily what you do or say (or don’t do or say) that makes a lasting impression, but rather how you conduct yourself. Holiday parties are no exception. Do you know what actions and behavior can help you further the image you want to uphold as a professional at this year’s holiday business and social events?

Attend in order to navigate holiday parties and business social events with ease and confidence.

Holiday Etiquette Can Make – or Break – Careers
Whether the event you are attending is hosted by your employer, a client of your firm, an industry association or a prospective employer or client, the way you act matters. You need to know how to properly respond to an invitation and how to conduct yourself during the event. You also need to know the proper way to follow up afterwards. All of these aspects can help you make a positive impression, which may have a career-boosting effect.
