Did you know networking is the most successful way to find your next position, find career building opportunities, start building a client base, and more?
The place to start networking is with people you already know. But one of the keys to successful networking is expanding that circle. Social media can be a great networking tool to help you meet new people. Even so, you’ll also need to get away from your computer so you can meet and connect with new people at live, in-person events. Some people—including lawyers!—find these events intimidating.
And that’s where networking cards can help.
Whether you call them “networking business cards,” “resume cards,” “student business cards,” or just “business cards,” these are powerful tools to help attorneys and law school students self-market, identify their unique value proposition, and network in-person.
