Ethical to give yourself made up titles on LinkedIn
I have been polishing up my LinkedIn profile for good reasons these days and was looking for examples of how people describe their roles on my and other teams.
I am shocked to see how many made up titles that is nowhere near what the GAL states. One described herself as a national director. She is a PM. Another also gave himself a partner director title. He was a PBE (partner business evangelist) - note that the ‘partner’ refers to our customers not the coveted partner title. One signs off as CTO. I have heard of self promotion but this is something else.
Wouldn’t this be unethical and dishonest?
