Problem with current job title [#permalink]
09 Oct 2006, 10:34
I am currently in a job where my title does not reflect what my job responsibilities are. Although I have a Swedish M.S in Business Management and Engineering, I was hired on as an Assistant Account Executive at a marketing agency (due to my lack of agency experience) but after 7 months, my duties are that of an Account Executive. I am the project manager on several projects and I'm the lead on some accounts where I manage teams.
I actually took a paycut and a step down for this job, because I really wanted some solid marketing agency experience. Unfortunately I was one of those people who was overqualified for entry-level positions and didn't have enough marketing experience for higher level positions. Catch 22 in a way.
Anyway, my worry is that adcomms will disregard my leadership and work experience due to my entry-level title. What can I do? (Btw, I fully expect to get officially promoted well before the fall of 2007, but of course I can't put that on the resume now.)
I dont think the title matters as much as what you have really done and learned from it. Use the job description/duties section to notify adcoms what work you do - but I think you should keep the current job title as schools will verify that with your HR dept later. I know it sucks but nothing you can do about it...i do CIO's job but im just a manager
