Look, we’ve all been there. We’ve all sat staring at our CV, or a job application (or even our LinkedIn profile) and thought the same thing. Your job title doesn’t sound very exciting. It doesn’t capture the amount of hard work and effort that goes in to your day-to-day.

So maybe you take out the word ‘assistant’ and replace it with ‘consultant’ or ‘executive’. Maybe you give yourself a teeny, tiny, virtually unnoticeable promotion. You’re practically a deputy manager anyway, so who’s really going to dispute it?

A few adjustments here and there and before you know it, you’ve become a Direct Mail Demi-God or a Chief of Ideas.
