Market Your Brand Through Networking/Business Cards
Even in the age of social media, business and/or networking cards continue to be the most common way to place your name in front of people who can potentially lead you to job opportunities. Business cards – first used in China in the 15th century – continue to this day as a primary means of connection. Whatever the circumstances, having a card that establishes your identity while supporting your career efforts is an important job search tool. This session will identify (1) the essential elements of networking/business cards; (2) how to make them both creative and memorable; and (3) the reasons and benefits to have them!
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
