Who else is tired of people who post on here with vague AF titles that don’t give any indication of job role or department?

Senior Manager, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Manager, I’m looking at you. These are levels of seniority, not job titles.

And they always seem to be the most opinionated.

Anyone have any thoughts on including a short description of your position on your resume underneath your title? Then listing your bullet points or accomplishments after.

I think typically you would try to do describe your role and accomplishments in the same bullet point but maybe adding a description would help the recruiter or hiring manager understand your previous experience better?

Advice needed: I was hired into my company right after MBA, but not as a part of the official MBA rotational program. My role has a lot of additional responsibilities than those in the program: I manage one person, publish monthly reports, etc. People in the rotational program have much fewer responsibilities (1 big project/6m). I feel like because of the timing of my hire, I’m pegged to a lower title than my job responsibilities. How can I effectively make a case for promotion?

I've been with my agency for over 3+ years. This is the first agency I'm at and I've been without a mentor or an exact career path this whole time. It's been a lot of waiting and promises that things will get better. I've been approached by another agency recently by my previous manager, but working with that person is difficult. Old manager is putting lots on pressure to join them. My gut says no, but I don't see my current agency building my career paths anytime soon.
