I received some brand new business cards in the mail today to make it easier for me to exchange contact information when I am talking to other business people, professionals, employers, or potential customers. I can’t stress enough how important it is to have business cards in order to make yourself standout and look professional in this rough economy. It surprises me when I meet other young business people such as myself who are looking for employment and/or call themselves professionals, yet they do not have a simple business card. How do you expect to compete among the countless other Business School graduates in this country and around the world without this simple and easy to make tool. In fact, it doesn’t matter what you studied in college or what professional field you are working in, YOU NEED BUSINESS CARDS…PERIOD! So I am suggesting that if you do not have business cards, make some!
