That's if you get a reference from the "dim bulbs" in HR. If you point
the hiring manager to your former manager or co-workers AND TELL THEM
WHAT YOU'RE DOING you should be fine with that kind of change. I've done
it, and it never hurt me at all.

Always prep your references after an interview so they know what to

So I would be extremely leery of this... it could make you look like you're claiming to have a job you didn't have at all.
