New role, new title


If you’re hiring or looking for a role outside your industry, you may need to forget everything you know about titles.


For example, when you hear the title “CIO” what comes to mind?

- Internal IT? EUC? Infrastructure? Reporting to a CTO who has all tech?

- Or perhaps CIO is the top tech role, and the CTO handles tech strategy and architecture?


When you hear the title “head of operations”, what comes to mind?

- Call center?

- Loan processing?

- Trade settlement and clearance?

- Let’s not forget about ops scattered throughout tech. Helpdesk and IT support? SOC/NOC? Cloud operations? DevOps?


Then don’t get me started on VP here vs VP there!


This is part of the reason I love recruiting. It’s so much more than matching titles.
