Yes, but you're not trying to get Collin's daughter to

On the last point, in most cases the very first person
to screen your resume will be a recruiter or internal
HR person, so people not remotely concerned with
your role are actually the first who need to be able
to understand what your resume title means, and in
most cases they need to understand it in about 10
seconds or less.
