It's that time of the year again: endless baked goods, weird coworker gift exchanges, client outings and...company holiday parties. Company holiday parties can be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing? The open bar and appetizers that you can't/won't make at home. The curse? The open bar and having to mingle with the coworkers that you don't actually like.
While I can't really help you deal with the person in your department that you hate because they heat up fish in the microwave, I can tell you how to act at these company holiday parties. Hey, maybe I can help you look good enough for a potential promotion. Or maybe I am just creating this list to have something to reference in a few weeks.
Anyway, I've compiled a list of do's and don'ts for you to follow as you ring in the holiday season with a cocktail in hand.
1. Sip, don't chug.
2. Drink two drinks less than your boss.
3. Keep attire professional. The networking game doesn't stop.
4. Don't double fist. This isn't a college frat party.
5. If you have work the next day, make sure you show up.
