Making a lasting first impression requires both a firm handshake and a business card.

A business card helps you to build your network by providing new connections with your contact information and the opportunity for them to make a quick note to help them remember you.
Business Card Etiquette
As a general rule, when networking you want to give your card at the end of the conversation. You could say, “It was great speaking with you. Here is my card; let’s stay in touch.” This should encourage the other person to give you his/her card too, but if not, kindly ask for it. Avoid casually handing out business cards; this can make a negative impression. After receiving your cards, we encourage you stop by Career Services to talk with a member of the Career Services staff to discuss the proper use of business cards in networking, informational interviews, job fairs, etc.
