It’s no surprise that you have to network to get work, but how do you avoid that awkward moment when someone offers you their business card and you have nothing (or a really crappy card) to offer in return. I’ve run into this situation so many times, the “broke student” excuse can only last for so long. Here are some cheap options for business cards
