Got biz cards?
Do you have business cards? You absolutely, positively should. Even in a time when everything is digital, business cards are still thriving. Business cards allow you to showcase your personality in the design and delivery of your card, and allow you to leave new contacts with a physical reminder of who you are and a few, pithy bits of information about what you do. When you exchange business cards you transfer more than just contact data. You transfer impressions and stories that leave a lasting impact.
Surprisingly, companies like Staples and Office Depot have reported a surge in demand for business cards over the past 3 years. This is in spite of the apps and online tools that promise to “replace the business card”.
With the fierce competition for professional opportunities these days, you want to leave a lasting impression. You also want to leave a physical reminder of who you are and what you’re looking for. Whether you’re going to an internship fair, networking event, or are just out and about. You never know when you might meet that contact who is going to be instrumental to helping you find your dream internship.
