I work for a very large multinational manufactuting company in a commercial role. My employer uses non-standard job titles for my role and I'm wondering if using the "industry standard" title instead of the company assigned title on resume is acceptable.
If, for example, a supply chain professional is assigned a "sourcing manager" title but elects to use "commodity manager" (or vice versa) on a resume to conform to a potential employer's title convention, is this a red flag to HR? The job descriptions are interchangable for all practical purposes and the typical job duties are identical. There are many other examples I could use from other professional verticals but I think this conveys my point.
