Business Cards

Intern Queen recently wrote about making savvy student business cards. I think this post readily applies to the unemployed looking for work right now especially if you are putting yourself out there and doing some professional development.

She talks about business card basics. What to include, what to exclude, how to title yourself if you aren’t currently employed.

Something I LOVED was the recommendation for the QR-code. How frickin’ tech savvy. She says:


QR codes are everywhere these days, from magazines to advertisements in public venues. All it takes is a quick scan with your smart phone, and the QR code leads you instantly to a designated URL. Want to show you’re in the know when it comes to technology? Since most college students don’t have a professional logo, use that space on a business card to include a QR code that directs users to your LinkedIn profile or personal website.  Professionals will be quite impressed by your technology know-how, and it will make it much easier for them to check out your full profile, which would otherwise require them to head to a computer or smart phone and type in a long URL. You can create and download a QR code online for free, and it takes seconds! Check out http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ to generate your QR code
