What job title should I ask for?
I have a job offer in which I would be working 3 main functions, doing financial analysis, marketing database development and maintainence, and working on marketing and operations projects. I currently have an analyst title (marketing research analyst), and would rather have a title that indicates a promotion, as it is a pretty hefty salary increase. The company has indicated they are flexible with they title, which they have named Senior Business Analyst. (the senior part doesn't do it for me in terms of showing what I would like to) I don't know if they would go for an AVP title, but if they would, AVP of what? Marketing and Finance? They do not have an AVP in either role currently, though they have a number of AVP's in other areas. They might be more apt to choose something in between Sr. Analyst and AVP. But what would that be? The position reports to the EVP/CFO and is under the Finance area. This is the banking industry. Thanks in advance!

The key to titles is usually how many people you manage. IN my experience you always get a "senior" analyst or administrator unless you are responsible for other people in which case you could then become a supervisor, a manager, a director etc. you didn't mention your staff in your question...

Just put whatever industry you're in, and then "professional" after it (meaning you're a professinal in that industry).
