How do you accurately list your position on your resume, when your employer has it wrong?
When searching for a new job, how do you accurately list your position when your employer has given you the wrong title? For example: If your employer has given you the title of Accounts Payable Clerk, and you do the job of a CFO. What do you put on your resume?
