How Important Is A Job Title Change?

Career expert Oreste "Rusty" D'Aversa says a career title change should be about the duties and skills you are responsible for and the progression of responsibility in the new role.

Question: Is A Change In Title Important?

Dear Rusty,

I am currently the director of IT for a small ($40M) company that is part of a large ($2B) global corporation. I report to the SVP of Finance and Operations and I have been in the position for about eight years, having started with the company as MIS manager about 11 years ago.

Corporate has decided to merge our company with several others and relocate them together.

I have been asked to move to the new location and be the senior IT person at the new location. I have received a copy of the job description and it reads pretty much like my current set of duties.
