13 Embarrassing Job Titles That Won’t Exist in 10 Years

linked-in

The fine folks over at fullyc.com put together a list of objectionable job titles they found on LinkedIn, and since the guy who is posting this has the job title of “Social Media Dude”, I thought for sure it was worth sharing…

Everybody. You do not need a job title that is anything more descriptive than it needs to be. It does not need to be personalized. It does not need to be flashy or trendy or cute. A fancy job title will not make your boring job seem more satisfying or charm any customers into thinking you’re better than you really are. They’re all resume liabilities, every single one of them, and in five years not only will you be embarrassed at having it on there but you will have no idea what to change it to and it will be as a curse upon your career and family.

So, if you possess any of the following job titles, or yours is in any way similar to these, please immediately use all the white out as well as format everything you own and, if you’re lucky, you may be able to escape your awful decisions.
