Put QR codes on your business cards
Ask the Recruiter
Poynter's Joe Grimm suggests using "bleeding edge" mobile quick response codes on business cards and resumes to help applicants stand out in a crowded field of job seekers. "They can be printed on everything from ads to hotel key cards to scarves, even geeky neckties ... A two-dimensional bar code on a resume or business card can brand you as someone who is on top of technology and take prospective employers to your portfolio, resume or a video. They can jump-start conversations." The codes are basically printed bookmarks that are captured with a cell phone camera and automatically direct the viewer to a preselected Web site or online presentation.
