mechengr2000 Posted July 18, 2011 Share Posted July 18, 2011 (edited) When I send out very formal emails and letters, if its the first time I am in contact with someone, I include a signature that stays my title e.g. phd student researcher the name of the university e.g. university of X my office "address" e.g. Smith Hall Room 555 email and phone number e.g. John Smith PhD Student Researcher University of X Smith Hall, Room 555 555-555-5555 email@example.com -- I have extensive research experience (5 years) and have completed an MS with Research Thesis at a different school. (I recently started my PhD here). I have noticed if I dont mention this to people, I am treated like someone who does not have this experience. For this reason, I was thinking of mentioning it in my signature as follows: John Smith PhD Student Researcher University of X Smith Hall, Room 555 MS Thesis, University of Y 555-555-5555 firstname.lastname@example.org -------- What are your thoughts? Is this the right way to approach the problem? If not, what is a better way to approach the problem stated above? Thank you!
