March Interview Tips

Create your own business cards
It may seem strange to create business cards if you’re thinking of changing roles, but if you have an online portfolio, electronic resume or even an up-to-date LinkedIn page, they can help interviewers remember your name and find your work. Design a simple business card with your contact information, applicable social media links and the path to your online samples to hand out to everyone you speak with during the interview process. They’ll serve as an easy reference if they want to follow up with you prior to another meeting or making an offer. Your resume may end up in a stack with others, but a personal business card will be sure to set you apart.
