Hello, I am a chemist working in Basel. My official start date is 1st November.
Last Friday, my future boss emailed me to ask if my relocation thing is alright (I am from Hong Kong, got PhD in Scotland then worked in Canada for 2 years). Then he suggested to have a dinner, which is confirmed this Friday evening.
My background is that this is my first industry chemist job (The company is US one, pretty big). I have been working for like 6 years in university labs. Therefore, I do not want to screw it up. And I have been doing a lot of preparation during this "vacation" October..
Real questions here, about the dinner:
1. What to expect?
2. In this case, does my boss pay for the dinner? or AA?
3. What should I do/How I should behave in general?
4. What must not be done?
