Question about how I can 'show off' my new credentials in my email signature.

    Question

  • I have been working hard on getting my MCITP Enterprise admistrator for Windows 2008, before I started I did the required Windows 7 exam, at the time I Decided I may as well do a second Windows 7 test and I completed the windows 7 enterprise certificaiton.  In mid january I will be writing my final exam and hopefully I will complete the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.

    How am I allowed to 'show' this off in my email signature?  Seems as though people just use the MCITP credentials, but that is very vague, so I am trying to figure out what I am allowed to us

    I deal a lot of potential clients and potential future coworkers via email and I would like show off the credentials in hope of attracting new clients and potential employees.  The logo builder allows me to do so, however I would like to stay away from using pictures in my email.

    MCITP: Enterprise Administrator
    MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7

  • Hi Dan,

    I understand your point. I don't use the logos in my email signature either. I mean which one(s) would you use if you have so many credentials. I also made a VBC to show of and use a link in my email to that vbc.

    I see a lot of options where people just describe their credentials so in your case i'd describe it as follows:

    MCITP: Enterprise Administrator
    MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7

    Nothing wrong with that and it's good descriptive because it tells people where you are certified in. It's not as spectacular as a vbc but it tells people what they should know.

  • Hi Dan,

     

    You can download the MCITP logo from https://mcp.microsoft.com/mcp/default.mspx

     

    Select program benefits and Official MCP logo and Logo Builder tool

    Create customized logos that display your unique expertise in Microsoft technologies. Store them in your own logo library, choose a format that works for you, and download to use in Web or print materials, such as your resume, business cards, and Web site. You may be prompted to sign in again to access Logo Builder.

     

    In addition to it Microsoft  VBCs have been launched, lets show them off.

    Log into the Virtual Business Card builder site and create your card.

  • thanks Sashin,

    I realize i can use the logo builder, which is very nice, however I would rather stay away from using logos in my email signature.  The logo builder is fine for just showing MS credentials, but I also want to include other examples like security+ / Cisco certifications.

    I need to use plain text, I can use your forum signature to better explain what I am getting it.  you are displaying MCITP as a credential, but that doesnt really tell me much.  I have no way of knowing if your simply certified for windows 7, or if your certified for SQL Server, Exchange and Server 2008...   I just dont understand, its not a huge deal to me, I was just wondering why MS didnt provide some better way to give more information about certification without using logos, it could be that.  I am guessing its because they have too many certifications that.
