Good morning. It’s Wednesday December 6, 2017 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!
Clarice McClung from TV One offers Cyn3 holiday party “Don’ts”!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – holiday party season! Here’s what NOT to do at a company holiday party: 
  1. Do not wear inappropriate attire – Cocktail attire is sometimes required for corporate holiday parties but you should keep in mind that you are still amongst your work colleagues. Holiday parties give you the option to be a bit more festive in your outfit selection, but make sure your outfit meets the dress code without being too revealing. 
  2. Do not over indulge in alcoholic beverages –It’s not uncommon for some organizations to offer alcohol at holiday events. If you must drink, set a limit that allows you to enjoy the party but still be in control of your actions. Not being in control of your actions could potentially affect your employment with the company. 
  3. Do not discuss job specific/work related topics – Corporate holiday parties give you the opportunity to have fun and get to know your colleagues outside of the normal work day. Save work matters for the next business day. Have fun and enjoy yourself!
