Question: anyone been to a reception after they accepted. I have one with a dinner and cocktail party thing. Any general advice on what to expect would be appreciated. I know the basics (dont get drunk, dont order the most expensive thing, dont hug the partner, etc.) but as far as what actually goes on at these things, I am kind of clueless. Ive done plenty of cocktail receptions, but no dinners especially none when I already had accepted and didnt need to know anything about the firm. There will be unaccepted people there, which I am assuming is a big part of the reason behind it, I just dont know my role.
What is my role/goal (besides not messing up) in this thing?
