Did you know that July is cell phone etiquette month? Of course you
already know that cell phone etiquette is an important consideration in
the work place; you shouldn't text while talking to your boss or have
your phone ring loudly in a meeting. What about taking the last donut
at the meeting? What should you order to eat at business lunch? How do
you deal with "cube invaders" who won't let you get any work done? Not
to worry, we have plenty of books at the Career Resource Library that will keep you in the workplace etiquette know.
Barbara Pachter is a leading expert in business etiquette and
communications. In this book, Pachter covers such varied topics as
overseas global gaffes, office dating, contemporary guidelines for
