Skip meal or no

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Sep 10, 2009 3:07 pm

I tend to peter out by the time it gets to lunch for cbs. Now I have some firms with options to not have meals, only interviews during cbs. Should I opt for no-meals, or continue to go to cbs + meal? My risk-averse side is saying that the fewer people I meet, the fewer opportunities I'll have to say something stupid. My other side is saying that I should meet with everyone I can and suck it up.

thoughts?

Take the lunch. You can't really mess them up as long as you don't do something ridiculous. Just be yourself and enjoy being treated to a delicious meal that you could never otherwise afford.

In my opinion, I think you should take every single opportunity you can to meet and talk with as many people as possible. I would think that going to these lunches shows that you are pretty interested in the people and the firm which could only be a good thing. If you're worried about energy levels, just choose a lighter option or eat less at lunch.
