Is it ok to alter your previous job title in your CV or resumes?

I think it’s okay to alter your previous job title in your CV or resume if the title that you want to use is a more accurate reflection of what you actually did.

As long as you have someone in your previous company that can vouch for the actual work you did whilst you were there you will be absolutely fine!

The only caveat is it’s your responsibility in interview with a company that’s looking at your altered CV to be able to explain why you made this move :slight_smile:

So ultimately if changing your job title gives you a competitive advantage and it’s a more accurate representation of the work you did - I would do it everytime!
