Stand Out at Your Career Fair with Student Business Cards

Career Fairs are a challenge as there are so many people to meet and so little time! Make the most of your college career fair by presenting business cards to recruiters and hiring managers in addition to your resumes, as you will reap the benefits.

The benefits are many:

  • Recruiters know you planned ahead
  • More likely to get a business card in return
  • Easier to follow-up with since you have accurate contact information

Information to include:

  • University and college within it (if applicable)
  • Formal name
  • Major
  • Graduation month & year (great news- underclassmen can use them again)
  • Email address (use .edu email address as it identifies you as a student
  • Phone number

Where to purchase:

  • Check your career center first as many universities are providing this service
  • Vistaprint for inexpensive, yet professional cards
  • Moo for rounded corners and more template choice

Remember, this shouldn’t be a wild and crazy exercise unless you’re pursuing an internship or job in a creative field. Even then, adhere to best design principles, as you want to be remembered for the right reasons!
