Consultants say it is OK to have one drink if interviewers do


March 18, 2016

Question: Should I drink during a dinner meeting if my interviewers are drinking?


David Martin, Sterling Martin Associates
This one is a little tricky. If the server asks you first (before the other guests) if you would like something to drink, tell them you haven’t decided yet and see what the others order.

If no one orders alcohol, I definitely would not either. If everyone orders something to drink, it is probably fine to have one drink. But I would limit it to one so you don’t get tipsy and act inappropriately.
