abreast of business trends is a goal at Esselte. But one trend worth avoiding
is rampant title inflation which is alive and well across the globe.
leading business magazine The Economist jokingly referring
to Korea's dictator Kim Jon IL as a trendsetter for his over-the-top take on
title inflation: the Korean
dictator boasts a whopping 1,200 titles.
no one is going to confuse the average job-hunter with a megalomaniac dictator,
careful scrutiny of titles is necessary for today's job-hunters and hiring
What's in a Name?
inflation can spring from many wells: job hierarchies have become more complex,
therefore more diverse roles and titles are required to parse differences; when
money is tight, new, fancier titles are often awarded in lieu of cash; and
lastly, cultural shifts have companies assigning titles such as Chief Diversity
Officer, CEO of Sustainability and even, yes its true, Minister
A Rose by Any Other Name
title inflation has taken hold, hiring managers need to carefully suss out a candidate's
true experience, rather than assuming a set of responsibilities based solely on
title. Smart HR pros will match job descriptions against experience, and view titles
as just one set of criterion. Hiring managers will benefit from the insight in Title Inflation Emerges With A Vengeance.
hunters should recognize the dangers of puffery and consider functional resumes
that highlight accomplishments and expertise rather than soley relying on titles
to convey worth. HR pros can sniff out embellishment, so keep it
straightforward and simple.
that simplicity, is well, too simple? Make sure your job descriptions showcase,
rather than show off, with the advice in Does Your Job
Title Get the Job Done?
is the wackiest, most embellished title you've come across? Does title inflation
make it hard to discern an employee's true experience? Share your thoughts here and at
