Story by Dr Felicia Zhang
On the day of my departure from Hanoi, I shared a bus trip of one hour in length with a professor from Hong Kong’s Institute of Education and found that we shared the same academic interests and were both passionate about what we do. I then produced my high tech QR business card (see below) and told him that behind my QR code is my CV on Mahara.
I came back to Australia a day later and the following day, the same Professor sent me a conference announcement in Suzhou, China and within 3 hours, I got invited to a key note address in China for that conference. I can only say QR code and my CV on Mahara have been the best advertising tool for my career this year. You can try out the QR code on this page to see my CV or do the old fashion way by clicking on this link:
Here is a picture of the business card from the story, download a QR reader for your mobile device, and then scan the QR code with your QR reader.
