Should I put PMP after my name?

Once one obtains their PMP, also known as Project Management Professional status, the question is how do I let others know I now have this status? The 4 main places are:

1. Your business card. Once you obtain your PMP status order up some new business cards

2. The signature line in your email address. I would also recommend including an embedded hyperlink to your LinkedIn page.

3. The signature line or username on various websites you visit (message boards, LinkedIn, Face book, Twitter)

4. In your resume after your name, and within the education section.

PMP certification status not only means you passed a test, it means you have been managing (or working as a team member) projects for several years and that you are willing to continue with continuing education to keep that status. This is also part of branding yourself.
