Job Seekers Using Business Cards to Get Noticed
With over 7 million Americans losing their jobs over the past 2 years, job seekers are getting creative to get noticed by employers. Many people hunting for jobs have utilized services initially created for small business for marketing. Services like those offered by VistaPrint for printing business cards, post cards, stationary, and t shirts.
At networking events, job seekers network and pass out unique cards that leave an impression. There’s no business name on the cards, just the name of the individual, their skills, maybe a desired job description, and contact information. And when these aggressive job seekers do get an interview, they provide business cards to all employees that are a part of the process in addition to a unique resume and brochures detailing their business accomplishments.
Professionally looking material is very important in this process and mailing the materials might not be as useful as hand delivering. Getting your best impression in the minds of the employer is your main goal.
