Today I asked some people what is wrong with Latinos today and some of their responses were typical. Latinos generally don't like other Latinos...it's just a culture. We are threatened at other events and when we see another professional, we stay away. However, when we find Latinos who are welcoming, we don't really know what to do. I say act as if you were being interviewed, you never know who is connected to who.
I'm glad organizations like the Philadelphia Public Relations Association can provide programming for students. On Tuesday, December 8th they are hosting a "Business Etiquette 101" program with Gail Madison. The program will feature a presentation by the renowned etiquette consultant, as well as an interactive session for students to test their business etiquette skills, plus a networking opportunity with local PR professionals. Simple things like eye contact, web-to-web hand shakes, etc. are important when it comes to business etiquette.
