Sounds like we’re arguing two different points here.Do you provide engineering work through LinkedIn? LinkedIn is a live resume that sometimes reminds you about a work anniversary. If you're a P.E. in all 50 states or in one, putting P.E. at the end of your name and leaving it at that isn't wrong, illegal, or worth reading the LinkedIn user agreement.
You are correct, it isn’t “actually” wrong or misrepresentation to post the PE suffix on LinkedIn if you are licensed in any state. My point was that avoiding misleading information is important.
Yeah, I may be a PE in WA, but if I go do work in OR, for example, i can’t legally claim to be a PE there without a license in that state. By clarifying my state of licensure on LinkedIn, I do better to avoid immediate misrepresentation to potential customers/colleagues.
