What should go on my business card?


Dear Jancy,
I am currently a creative advertising student, and recently I have been attending many advertising related events. I quickly realized that having a business card handy to give out is almost mandatory.
The problem I am having is that I have no idea what to put as a ‘job title’ on a business card. I thought that since I do freelance graphic design, it would be a good place to start, however I do not want people thinking that graphic design is as far as I wish to go.
Overall, my question is: Will placing my job title as ‘Graphic Designer’ have any negative effect on me getting a job as an Art Director in the future?
Thanks a lot!

intro What should go on my business card?Why not be enigmatic and carry a card with only your name and contact information on it? And do design it well.
