Career Advisor – Don’t Focus on Job Titles
It’s important not to focus on job titles when you are conducting your job search. There are often many different titles for the exact same job and level of responsibility. Also, don’t be afraid to apply for a job with a new or different title. Some of the fastest growing fields like environmental, green, energy or IT positions have their own set of job titles. Many of these new positions could utilize your past experience, education and talents.
Focus on the description of the job and the credentials required by each position. If a job sounds interesting and you have the credentials listed, apply without hesitation. Many of these growing fields offer quick advancement potential and additional responsibilities once you have proven yourself.
Quite often, if you have the credentials needed, jobs are created around your talents and abilities. That is why it is so important to NOT reject possible interviews because of a job title. Nothing happens until you get yourself in front of hiring authorities. It is not uncommon for hiring authorities to refer job seekers to other hiring authorities or departments within their own company.
Your job as a job seeker is to interview as much and as often as possible. If you get in front of enough hiring authorities, you will eventually find a job and job offer that fits you perfectly!Back
