I'm going to assume you're NOT trolling, and say No don't do it, your shop will give you business cards and students with their own custom cards look like epic tools. There are threads on the latter (students), but I'm telling you right now, nobody gets custom business cards.

Busiess cards are for people in business. If you are not working then you should be asking for the cards, not giving them out. Lets get real here, if you are a student you are looking for help. What kind of value add will there be for someone who takes your business card.

Student business cards are not as bad as you make them sound Anthony, they are actually "contact" cards that students can use to connect with people in the industry.

Listen, I understand the concept of a business card for students, but I want you to think for one second. When you ask someone for a business card it is because you want to contact them because they are important or interesting. Do you really think you will be talking to an MD at BAML and he will say "oh shit, this UG is the bomb, I NEED to talk to him in the future". Yeah, I doubt it.

We make fun of bank teller who have business cards, why would you think a student would be any better.

Business cards = JOB

LOL ok champ

I think the OP was referring to custom cards as a professionals though, which is just a waste of time. I don't think most firms would even allow that.

I think student business cards aren't necessarily bad...They can be fairly useful in recruitment sessions.
It's awful when students give other students their business cards.

my school give business cards if you hold certain leadership positions etc. when i took business cards at interviews and such i offered mine, but 99% of hte time professionals would rather just have your resume. (which makes a lot more sense and will have all your contact info on it anyway.)

so to other ugrads thinking about getting business cards i'd just keep resumes...that way your contact info is attached to your qualifications
