Q: Hi Brooke, My current job title is Junior Systems Integration Analyst, and the department that I work in is called Systems Engineering. However, my job function closely matches that of Applications Engineer. Furthermore, employees from other companies that are in the same industry use the title of Applications Engineer, while some others seem to use Mechanical Systems Engineer. Should I change the title of my current position on my resume to something that will be more easily known to recruiters and other companies? – Arvin
A: Since your official title is Jr. Systems Integration Analyst I would keep that on your resume, but I’d suggest putting Applications Engineer in parentheses after that title since that more accurately reflects your responsibilities. Thank you. – Brooke
