Are you PhD, MD, CCIE, MCSE ????

I know there are PhD's and MD's on here.

I've been a MCNE, MCNI, and MCI back in the 90's.  Am currently a CCDA, CCNA, CCNP, and CCVP.

That said, my business cards only have my name on them.  I hate it when people put all their certificates and other crap up in their offices or cubes or put a string of acronyms after their names.  

In the future I may just put ID10T on my cards..

My company requires I put A+ and Net+ certified on my business cards. I know, those are pretty much the special ed of computer certs, but it is what I have.

From what I am told, the PE is the real exam, along with the interview.  The EIT just weeds out some of the boys.

I think that is dependant on each state.  Here there was no interview.  Also, you had to take the EIT exam, work in your field for at least 4 years and then you could take the PE exam.  At that point you would have the credential.  It's been a long time, though so things may have changed here.

I'd have to go look at a business card.  I don't think it even says Ph.D. - people probably jsut figure that out.

Now I'm curious - hold on while I go look.




ETA:  Nope - it just says my name with my title (associate professor of blah blah) underneath it.  (no "Dr." in front of my name either).

I can put all sorts of things behind my name.

Alot of them would be lies.

Yeah, but you aren't a real Ph.D, like a Math, Physics, or Engineering professor.

You'd willfully list the A+ ????  

Back when I was an MCSE and a CCNA, I didn't list it, but if I had ever gotten that magical CCIE, I would have worn it like a badge.

He's not a doctor of philosophy, like a math/enginerd guy would be?  I think in his line of work the Ph.D is more than appropriate as a post graduate title.

I know at some upper level universities, it is simply assumed that everyone has a doctorate, so no one uses the address or post nominals.  Probably feels awkward if you're one of the few MS holders teaching there.

Besides, "Professor" is the higher honorific, although I've never been clear on what honorific to use with assistant and associate professors.  Instructors and post-docs get "Doctor" (if they are Ph.D/Sc.D./etc.) since it is their highest honorific.

Wow, I didn't realize they were being so truthful in their titles these days.
