Good morning and Happy Thursday!
It’s been a minute since the last time I posted! Things have been crazy and busy and exciting at my (still kind of new) gig and I am loving and soaking up every minute of it. I have been interviewing so many potential new employees and talking about my organization to people outside of the business that I thought it was time to force myself to request a business card. Yes… I am that HR person that forgets to order business cards.
This got me thinking about trends in networking/recruiting/business development/etc. I have seen a new trend in business cards over the past year or so. People are adding QR tags to their cards that either link them directly to their LinkedIn profile or send the crashing into that person’s company website. I am thinking about adding a QR tag that goes directly to my LI profile to encourage people I meet outside the organization and outside of industry events to connect with me in a faster, more efficient manner and find out more insight into the amazing things are company has done and will be doing in the future.
What are your thoughts on QR tags? Tacky? Too techy? Or the professional and technologically advanced way to connect and network at the speed of light
