Choose the right wine for dining during your interview.

Have you ever been at dinner at which the potential hiring parties ordered wine or another alcoholic beverage? What is the right choice to make to make a good impression?

A non-alcoholic beverage. Unless you are going to work for a vintner, brewery or like business, its safer to not risk losing “your mental edge”.  A study entitled “The Imbibing Idiot Bias: Consuming Alcohol Can be Hazardous to Your (Perceived) Intelligence”  found that employers are using a legal dinner beverage as tool to attempt to trip you up or by which to suggest that your choice to have a drink (along with them) is an unwise personal choice that might portend potential adverse decisions in the future; talk about entrapment.

One response to “Choose the right wine for dining during your interview.

In one of their experiments, they found that 26 percent of participants ordered an alcoholic beverage even when the boss’ drink choice was unknown, while 72 percent ordered a glass of wine or beer if the boss ordered one first.
