How to Impress Employers with Creative Business Cards
Just like a resume, your business cards are a representation of you. However, unlike traditional resumes, business cards offer you a chance to be a little more creative. A business card that's an unusual size or made from an unusual type of paper or other material doesn't easily get lost in a wallet or on a desk. Three-dimensional cards are also clever and hard to miss. A folded card gives you extra space to add additional information. And if you're in a creative field, a card that's eye-catching, unique, and reflective of your style is a must. An interesting, creative business card can make a great impression, and can help make sure you're not easily forgotten.
In fact, you might even consider creating two different types of business cards ' conservative business cards and creative business cards. Not all companies and employers are going to have the same culture. For example, you're going to have some companies where employees must adhere to a strict dress code and other companies are going to be a bit more relaxed. Determine the culture of the company you will be applying for and decide whether or not your creative business cards would be the best way to go.
