My job title is scaring off potential employers and I'm not sure what to do about it. Anywhere else the role I hold would be a executive level position that commands twice the salary I make (which is mid-level), but in my company I'm really more the equivalent a junior or senior contributor (plus some extras). How do I position my well-earned "executive" role so that hiring managers stop nixing me for junior-level positions because they think I'm expensive and/or overqualified? [more inside]

I get to put my job title of choice, within reason, on my business cards and in the company directory and my email signature. Unfortunately, there is no job title for what I do other than "admin assistant," which is fine by me, but my company wants everyone to have a "more important" title. If my company had a sense of humor, I'd have this covered, but they don't. Help me come up with something appropriately corporate sounding for what is essentially a jack-of-all-trades position.

I was laid off last week, and after taking a few days to sleep in and dominate my boyfriend at Minecraft, I'm jumping into the job hunt. I feel like I've done a pretty good job on most of my resume, but writing out my position at my most recent job has me a bit lost. It's my only work experience in Quebec, and was the longest I've ever worked anywhere, so it's important I get it right. [more inside]

I work at a fast-paced, startup non-profit. I have been there for six months and have quickly moved up the ranks from administrative assistant to director of community engagement. This is great news, except that I don't want to accidentally be a community engagement person for my entire career.

Help me figure out what my new title should be and how I should ask for it? [more inside]

The job description boils down to an operations manager, as opposed to the head manager who handles big-picture/strategic/money things. Operations Manager or Associate Manager are perfectly appropriate titles that describe the position well, but the company culture is quirky and very non-corporate, so I was wondering if I might find a less ceremonious alternative. Any suggestions?
