This is a message to companies that create job titles for their employees:

When you use job titles for your employees that are not representative of their daily tasks and actual role, you're doing them a disservice given they'd like to find another job in the future. I see this a lot in product where an employee may be doing an associate product manager or product owner role but is labeled as a business analyst. If you can't afford to pay what their actual title is, rethink your business

As an employee, I personally started putting what my title SHOULD be on my resume. They aren’t calling my current employer anyway. It helped me get a lot of interviews


Everyone needs to do this!


I constantly see posts here where someone says "I'm technically an x, but I do xyz, will I be able to apply for y role?". And the thing holding them back the most is their incorrect job title. If your employee is doing tasks OUTSIDE of their job title's description, they have the wrong job title and likely aren't being paid adequately for the work you assign them.


I see it a lot in sales as well...why does your employee have a BDR title but they're closing all of their business? Why does your employee have an AE title but they're responsible for mentoring and training new employees?


I haven’t been at a place that really cared what your title was externally represented as so long as it was within the confines of my daily duties.

My .02 is make your title indicative of your actual job, internal titles are irrelevant and more often most don’t care.


I think it doubles as an internal representation as well. If your duties exceed that of the duties of your job title then there’s issues w/ the internal representation of your job. For example, if i’m a product manager that is also responsible for email marketing for my features, other employees may see an email going out and contact marketing about a typo in the email

Hi everyone,

I am running into quite similar issues in almost all of the companies I have worked so far: Most of the senior engineers just exclude me in the important technical meetings whereas I am doing an important part (technical) of a project. They either think I am not knowledgeable enough for a particular task or just that I am good at doing some non-technical/manual task. I am the only female in the technical team and how do I address this issue & to whom? Thanks in advance!
