Can you give yourself your own job title if it's technically correct on a resume?

As a Forklift driver, it is hard to get ahead in life without proper education.

The problem with that is, as a Forklift driver, I have obviously negated to take life seriously many times.

I propose that I create a "fake" job title and pass it off as a decent job.

I would call myself "Logistics Coordinator" and describe the job in a way that sounds like I do it behind a desk. My plan is brilliant if I can pull it off.

I'm not going to do it.

You might be surprised that there is nothing wrong in what you suggest and it's part of writing a compelling resume (with in reason).

Just say that you are social positive and take initiative. Oh and don't forget extroverted, really fucking extroverted. You will get any job. I hate extrovertism. It's like a movement against deep thinking and the masterminds. It's much more important to get a long with everybody than doing your job with awesome results. For hobbies just put in bicycling and skiing and you'll get the job.

Another strategy is to seize control in the job interview, but for that one has to feel they are intellectually superior - meaning really fucking knowledgable, self-confident and as clay said,being really fucking extroverted helps a lot . Every good resume is exaggerated anyways. Your resume should be just good enough for it to be not thrown to the paper shredder machine right away.

If you can get away with the logistics coordinator then it's all good. Depends on what company you run for - if they want to check your story, you had better have damn good connections.


Although, back ont he extrovertism being bad - mother****** what???

some jobs like engineering or programming, experimental physics, all kinds of writing, requires more introvertism to be able to do a good job, but still they want extroverts, or as i call them "the boss' best friend that he want to invite for dinner" aka cocksucker lol. i yet to meet a person who is both extrovert and introvert. you are either are salesman or technical.

you don't have to be agreeable and a cocksucker if you are an extrovert. Having the skills to do your job got nada to with whether you're an introvert or an extravert.

depends on the job imo. certain jobs require some deep introvertism. mostly technical/logical jobs would benefit from people who are systematic rather than a local rock star.
