"The Different Types of Job Titles"

Every position within an organization is assigned a job title, which is associated with certain tasks and responsibilities. The title itself may give an indication of these responsibilities or simply denote a seniority level.

The job titles employed can vary according to industry, with different terms used to denote positions at each level. The same position may also have a different title depending on
company size and location.

Despite differences, however, job titles sit within a clear hierarchical company structure in both large and smaller businesses.

Each job function will occupy a place in a company’s organizational chart.

Job titles are of use to employers as they aid HR and recruitment processes, indicate compensation levels, create a chain of command (denoting reporting and line
management relationships) and demonstrate a path of career progression.

For employees, job titles help to accurately reflect their work and contribution to the company.

Consistency is important as job titles are used to evaluate an individual’s job history – an inaccurate or obscure job title may lead to an oversight in the application screening

Knowing the importance of a job title can help job seekers research jobs more efficiently, display progression within their careers and write a stronger resume and cover letter to beat ATS software and catch the eye of recruiters.
