When I moved to New York two years ago, I quickly realized that there is one factor that determines your success more than anything else: your network. That said, gaining a network takes action, lot’s of action. You have to attend events, lectures, and industry gatherings. Meet people that can mentor and help you along the way. But what’s the point of meeting all these people if they forget who you are as soon as you leave the room? Enter, Business card.
No matter what you do, who you are, or what business you are in, you should always have a business card available. It’s a quick, professional, and easy way to exchange contact information and make a lasting impression.
Since I quit my last internship, I had to get some new, updated business cards. This time I order them from MOO.Com, and I’m very happy with the outcome: they’re clean, simple, and to the point.
And the QR-code? That’s for my professional website, where you’ll find everything from my resume to portfolio.
