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.

Attempting to get out. Based on my current job title alone, I am getting reached out to for positions I’m not remotely interested in. My job title hasn’t matched my day-to-day work in years. Even when I apply to positions I like, recruiters recommend a position that better fits my title and not my work experience. How do I manage this? Can I just change my job title on LinkedIn and my resume to more accurately reflect what I actually do?
