Vcf.contact business cards are completely germ-free—no physical contact is required to send or receive a virtual card. Digital business cards can be shared with anyone, anywhere—simply show your QR code, or send the link over email, text, or social media.
Going digital is better for both networking and the environment. Virtual cards are always available when you need them and never run out, so you’ll never need to order more.
First and Last Name
It’s best to use whichever name you go by professionally. I recently got married, and because I went by my maiden name for so long I have my first name and my (new) last name on my card, and then have my maiden name in parentheses.
You have a few options when it comes to your job title. You can either put your exact current or most recent title (like, Sales Manager), the title you want (Senior Sales Manager), or a general title (Sales).
When you’re looking for a job, always put your email on your business card and resume. If you’re currently employed and are looking to leave said job, it’s best to put your personal email on your digital business card, not your work email.
Some people don’t like sharing their phone number, and that’s understandable. However, when you’re applying for jobs, you want to make it as easy as possible for a recruiter or potential employer to reach out to you. Most likely you’ll receive an email before someone contacts you by phone, but from a recruiter’s standpoint, a phone number is a nice-to-have.
One thing I would often see on resumes was the candidate’s home addresses. A full address isn’t necessary, especially these days when more and more companies are moving to a remote-based workplace. Put your general location on your card, like, San Francisco, or SF Bay Area, and that'll suffice. You can even add “or remote” at the end of it too, if you’re open to remote work post-COVID19.
