However it can be challenging to communicate the true level of responsibilities we have professionally just by offering a business card or introducing ourselves by role. The HR person reading your application may not know that being associate marketing assistant is a bigger deal than the name suggests.

While studies have uncovered that employees who created their own job titles identified as less stressed, it may lead to shortcomings elsewhere.

As a career coach, I see plenty of resumes. One thing I’ve noticed is how many people are inspired by the article on interesting job titles that exist around the world. Trevor, a career coaching client that I was working with brought

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard someone say, “You are what you eat!” at some point in your life. And while there’s definitely some truth to this statement — age-old aphorisms don’t become age-old aphorisms for nothing — what many of us might not have considered is just how deeply its logic applies to some of the more important individual aspects of everyday life.
