I'm a Ph.D. student considering getting business cards printed to facilitate follow-ups after conferences, etc. I am barely in touch with industry but I'm in a field where business cards are common.
My university has a set layout, but we have quite some freedom on what to include. There are some questions on whether we actually need a business card as a graduate student, but here I'm more interested on what to include on them.
I'm thinking at least:
- E-mail (as it is the primary form of communication for academics)
- Post address of university
- Personal page
I'm hesitant to include:
- Room number (we occasionally switch; updated room number is found on personal page)
- Telephone (same as above; could include cell number)
Not including telephone may be a bit harsh, but I'm curious whether you have some input in these matters. What should be included and what is less important?
