DCBA launches student business card service

By Aleem Jinnah, Douglas College Business Association

As part of our goal to aid business students in their career paths, the Douglas College Business Association is pleased to be launching a business card service this fall.

Why should I purchase business cards?
Business cards will give you the opportunity to provide brief career and contact information in professional and social situations where handing out resumes would not feasible. They are an essential job-searching, self-marketing and networking tool.

What will the cards look like?
The finalized cards will look very similar to this:



Will they be personalized?
Yes! The business cards will have your first and last name, program, major (if applicable), phone contact, and email contact.



What if I need them for the CA recruit at the end of September?
A rush order can be placed for students taking part in the CA recruit for no extra charge. Please email HR@dcba-online.ca

How much do the cards cost?
By leveraging a volume discount the DCBA is able to offer cards at two price points, significantly cheaper than if you purchased them on your own:

250 cards – Only $15
500 cards – Only $20 (BEST VALUE)

How do I order and pay?
Payments and information will be taken at the following times in the DCBA office (Room 4321, New Westminster Campus):

Wednesday September 15 (12:30 - 2:15pm)

Wednesday September 22 (4:00 - 5:15pm)

Wednesday September 29 (12:30 - 2:15pm)

Thursday September 30 (4:30 - 6:00pm)

Wednesday October 6 (12:30 - 2:15pm)

Thursday October 7 (4:30 - 6:00pm) *Last day!*

At this time we will only be accepting cash and cheque payments.

*** If you are unable to make any of the times listed above, please email HR@dcba-online.ca to work out a private appointment

How do I pick them up?
The DCBA will be setting up additional times when students can pickup their business cards at the DCBA office. We will be contacting students with this information as soon as they are ready.
