Whether you’re an undergrad, a law student, a graduate student, or even a culinary student, it’s a great look to have a business card handy whenever you’re networking. As a student, you work hard, so give yourself the representation you deserve with an impressive business card complete with all your contact details and titles. Explore professionally designed templates to get you inspired, then choose one to remix with your own branding and contact details. Print out your business card design at home, or send it to a professional printer. Reuse your design for your online brand presence and social platforms. It’s as easy as choosing a template, customizing, and sharing!
Start with basic contact details: your name, phone number, and your school email. Then, add your school’s name, logo, your degree titles, and if relevant, the name of the specific department you study in. Now, business cards should reflect your personality and be fitting for the specific job or industry you’re interested in. That being said, there are other additions you can include on your business card, but choose the ones that feel true to you and helpful to others when networking. Ideas to think about include your LinkedIn profile or portfolio website link, a headshot, your social media handles, a scannable QR code, and maybe even your favorite quote! Less is more when working with the small format of a business card, so make sure to only include what feels the most essential.
Think about your path of study, and the type of people you connect with when you network as a student. What should they know about you? And how can your business card capture who you are? If you’re in undergrad, don’t be afraid to use your school’s branding as the foundation for your design, as your life is heavily focused on being a fulltime student. For graduate, medical, or law students, take a more formal foundation to your design, then add a little twist that shows off your personality or communicates your specific goals. For instance, if you want to work in entertainment law, add an icon or imagery that makes people think of entertainment. Find the perfect balance of being concise, creative, and captivating all at once.
