USING THE PO
Your credential creates a positive image and increases awareness of your professionalism and expertise. When discussing what you do for a living, be sure to mention that you are a credentialed professional. Include your credential on your résumé and professional biography, and include a brief description about its value.
Use the acronym of your credential after your name whenever possible, including:
- Business Cards*
- Name Badges
- Photo IDs
- Email Signatures
- Website Listings
- Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn
Use the sample press release available in the PO Toolbox to customize a press release to media contacts in your area. Also, it is important that you keep C2EP informed on your accomplishments so we can assist in recognizing you.
Your PO pin is a symbol for your dedication to the public health and environment. Always wear your PO pin to industry events.
