Creating Your Own Student Networking Card

You're a student. You want to build connections with other librarians. You want a job! One thing you can do is create your own personal networking card. It looks like a business card but conveys who you are and your contact info. Thanks to ALASC member Joan, we have some tips for creating and printing your card. Your card may include:
  • At a minimum, your name, email address, and that you're a library student at St. Kate's. Use your school email address.
  • Brief information on the type of librarianship that interests you.
  • An easy-to-read font.
  • White space in the design, for notes and a professional appearance.
  • If you have them: blog address, efolio address, and/or LinkedIn address (you may want to pick just one, so your info is clean and not overwhelming).
Some sites Joan found that have free printing offers include:
If you have your own tips & tricks, please feel free to include them in the comments. We recommend you make some before our panel on Monday, 11/14, to network and enter a drawing.
