I don't put anything in my signature but I honestly don't mind if others do. To me if that's something they're proud of more power to them. My counselor added PhD at the persistence of the partner in our practice, and she is the most humble person I know. In other words I don't think it's worth judging someone on it.

OW-1, I'm a licensed attorney too - not relevant to my practice and I can't put Esq because I'm not providing legal advice. My client had JD in his sig, which triggered this for me. And he's in-house. Just thinking of all my colleagues who put "MBA." One even has the name of his school. Don't do this people.

At BCG for PhDs and MDs, it's automatically generated in our signatures if you have them, though people don't write it in their own sigs...

For PhDs and MDs, Dr. is fine. For lawyers, JD. For MBAs, those who put it down got an MBA not worth getting or have huge egos.

Hi Fishes,
I've got a very off the track question but I would really love your inputs. So I've got an offer from a company and I've accepted it as well. I've also added that I'm serving notice period on job portals. Coincidentally enough, HR from the company I'm holding offer with saw the profile and called me to ask why I'm updating my profile on portals and weather I'll join or not. So is it something I should be tensed about ? Is there any chance they will revoke the offer or something?
