Wjousts - I've been battling the same issue for years; titles created by previous employees that seem to have stuck to the corporate position title list. Confused | :confused:

To resolve this issue, my resume states the normal segments (e.g. position title, date range, accomplishments, & bullet points) but also includes the job description for each position held. The job description can be laid out similarly to the descriptions you find on the salary research sites.

Recruiters and HR personnel understand the typical corporate position title issues, so as long as you state what it is you do at the current position and highlight the important aspects, you should be get the point across to anyone reading your resume. Truthfully, all the resume is good for is to get your foot in the door, so create it to attract potential employers. Once you're at the table, you can explain what you did at your previous position regardless of the title they bestowed upon you.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Mark
