Hi all,
I would like to look for a new job. My current job is Test Engineer, but I intend to look for an Engineering Technician or Technician Job. I want to change my job title from Test Engineer to Test Engineering Technician on my resume so I can get me better fit with the new position. Please advise should I do that? I worry about the new company will think I lie on my resume.

Welcome to AAC.

Put whatever title the company you work for has given you. It doesn’t make enough difference to your chances of getting a new position to risk lying on your résumé. You gain almost nothing—if anything at all—and risk making yourself look unreliable.

Depending on where you live, Technician and Engineer are two different qualifications. What diploma or degree did you receive from school?
