My friend showed me her collections of business cards from people she has met ever since she entered the corporate world. Because it’s already a common practice for her to exchange business card every time she meet a new person be it work related or not. She said a business card is an essential tool for anyone looking to take a leap up the career ladder. Whether you’re self-employed or searching for a job, you should create your very own business card. Business cards are not just for businessperson, lawyer types or those with already established careers.

Also a business card is helpful for any networking opportunity. If you often find yourself chatting to people at parties, at the bus stop, even in line at groceries chances are those people could turn out to be a potential employer or client. So if you are that type of person, why not be prepared?
