How many job titles can one person have?
I was wondering how many job titles one person can have at a job at one time. At my last job of 6 years I was the Program Supervisor and also was the Office Assistant and in charge of Accounts Receivable. My main Title was Program Supervisor but I am trying to get a job in the Administrative field so I want to add Office Assistant and Accounts Receivable to my title on my resume as well.
