How Likeable Are You?
Face it — in today’s vicious corporate jungle, making a good first impression is crucial. There are no second chances. Instant assumptions are made and you’ve sealed the deal one way or another.
The reception of business cards are just one of the many areas where many people take the inconsiderate route:
Act as though you have received a gift. Upon accepting a card, you have the opportunity to repeat the name and be corrected on pronunciation. You should also ask any questions that the card itself may bring to mind and comment on the design if practical.
The idea is to show interest in any contact’s card, which will make them more likely to be interested in yours. Then respectively tuck it away in a safe place like a $100 bill. Your actions won’t be forgotten.
