I don't understand. They're gonna get their attention grabbed by what
you put in your resume. You can call yourself anything you want on
your resume...your previous employer doesn't have to sign off on your

The'll recogmnize what you did by what you do...not because your
title doesn't fit in exactly with their words

Are you concerned that when they are contacted for a reference, they
aren't going to know who you are because you aren't using the same
title as they are?

BTW...just curious..what problem does he have with the title?
