Just got a company credit card: how will it affect my score?
I work for a nonprofit and they just got me a company credit card in my name for business expenses. Looks like my credit score already took a hit just for opening the account—how long will it take to recover?

Also, I honestly don't have a lot of business expenses to charge to the card. If I only end up using this card a couple of times a year, will that affect my score?

(My personal credit is otherwise very good, so this only concerns my work card.)
