Get noticed, be remembered
Standing out in a job hunt is like successfully getting a clearance priced TV during Black Friday at Walmart: exasperating, yet rewarding if you can pull it off. The loads of different advice on how to get noticed is just as frustrating, and typically requires a ton of time, preparation, and energy: to simply say “Hire Me”. Well Moo, a beacon of light for job seekers, embraces that simplicity and provides several ways to get noticed without all of the unnecessary fluff and stress.
Keeping it classy
Moo’s standard sized card is an ideal replacement for the typical business card eliminating all of the frills and including only the necessities. The front of the card includes your name along with your education, contact information and skills. The back tells exactly what your goal is, reading “Hello my name is Your Name, I would like to work for you”.
So simple it’s almost deceptive. This card, with its retro color palette and concise information, is sure to catch the eye of everyone who receives one and waste little time getting to the point.
Super cute, tiny minis
The mini-moo is probably the quickest, and easiest way for someone to keep up with your contact info. Packed in a card half the size of the standard, this little card will definitely stop an otherwise busy hiring manager in their tracks. It’s also easy to throw in your pocket to pull out later without getting damaged or being in the way. Proof that sometimes the smallest things do indeed pack a big punch.
Everyone loves stickers, right?
Moo Stickers are a great way to make your point stick in a memorable, and create a personal brand. Place a sticker at the top of your job application, or paperwork. In a pile of the same information, yours will pop out like a sore thumb. It will also match the design on your business card, and show your attention to detail and how much you care about your personal brand. Other places these can be used include: Thank you cards after a meeting, next to your name at on the sign-in sheet pre-interview, existing business cards and any other paperwork they ask you to fill out and return.
Leave an impression
Moo cards for students are a great way to answer all of the same questions you get asked at every interview: “What’s your major?” “When do you graduate?” etc. All of that information is available to students with premium formatting; and trust me premium goes a far way in a room full of free-trial business cards that are popular amongst broke college kids. And while they aren’t free Moo understands the struggle, and offers 20% off for accounts registered with a college-issued email address.
You’ve got this!
Imagine these Moo cards and stickers are like a skip the line pass at Walmart, it doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the TV (or job) but you have a bigger chance than you did before. Proper care towards your personal brand will lend itself in proving to your hiring manager that you typically go above and beyond and will use the same care on the job. Head to Moo, or create your own so long as you leave a lasting impression. Happy job hunting!
