Letters after name
« on: Mar 15, 2012, 07:07 »
Final tuneup on resume is ongoing.  I am lucky enough to claim a couple sets of letters after my name.  I'm not sure using both is best move.   I can be Grantime,CHP RRPT or more simply Grantime, CHP.  Is more less in this case?  The resumes will stay within Health Physics but not necessarily in Nuclear power.  I rarely use either normally.

For a professional resume stick to the overriding - Grantime, CHP.

Three out of three ancient HPs agree - CHP is the way to go.

BTW Chimera -- I don't think it is possible that you are older than OldHP.

Edited to correct for space-happy thumb.

   [hijack] Some ancient HPs are having problems... eyesight, name recognition, cranial flatulence... I didn't see Old HP in this discussion.  OldHP was.  I'm not sure who is older, as I don't know Chimera (at least I don't think I do), however if I were a betting man, I'd put money on OldHP.
 [rulez] I now return this thread to it's topic... IMHO, CHP trumps NRRPT and so should be the only letters after the name.

(laughing to myself)  The "old(er)" comment wasn't meant to imply more years.  It was more along the lines of, "I may be getting older but I refuse to get old."  Besides, I'm only 63.  I wasn't there when they pulled the rods on the sun but I did read the Incident Report.

I may be one of the older active folks, but I too refuse to be old!   8)
