This question already has an answer here:
Job titles have changed three times over the course of my employment. The last title, Programmer Analyst IV, was supposed to be an "industry standard" and while there are other companies that use that title I feel it doesn't accurately conveys my status, responsibilities, nor do I find that it is used that much in the industry. The title Senior Software Engineer is much more appropriate for me and seems to be more prevalent in the industry.
Will I look dishonest if I put Senior Software Engineer on my resume and they call my previous employer to find I was listed as Programmer Analyst IV?
