Should a job seekers have their own personal business cards?
My answer is yes! Yes! YES!!!
Business cards are your most versatile marketing tool! Let’s assume that you can get some cards for $50. Actually, you can get 250 business cards for FREE from http://www.vistaprint.com/ They provide many different templates and customizations features. Try to make your cards make your cards look “business like”. No bizarre colors. Create a separate email name specifically for your job search. i.e. YourName@yahoo.com. White cards are fine. No strange fonts like ComicMS. Don’t do them yourself on the cheap. People will know the quality difference. Include your name, category/expertise/title, address, cell phone, home phone, and email.
