If they are flexible on title ask for a manager title! Seems easy enough and that way it doesn’t look like you took a downgrade on your resume

You want the title. Otherwise if you leave with the same title down the line it looks weird on a resume and you have to explain it. It’s so much easier just having it and not having to explain it later.

You’re a manager, and you’ll only accept a Manager title. Easy. I’ve had companies offer me lower titles and I’ve always refused them.
