While working contracts how do you manage different titles?  The agency calls you X and the physical employer calls you Y.

    I've ran into that before. I'd suggest contacting your agency and have them update your title.

    I go directly off what my contracting role says I am. A lot of my colleagues call me a sysadmin but my contract says I'm a Windows Infrastructure Administrator, which is technically the same thing but it just sounds more professional, especially when applying for new roles.

    @Skyliinez92   Thanks for following up.  I've decided to do the same thing.  The company I work for won't verify anyway they redirect to the contracting agency which in turn is the title I am going with.....  

    In fact where I am working you either a technology worker or developer.  I fall into the technology worker bucket.  My agency actually has my title correct.

    I was going to agree that whatever your contracting agency refers to you as is probably the safest bet as that's who they'd verify employment with anyways. I think this is especially true if you work DOD as the government tends to have broad generic names so they can keep options for the slot flexible. My company considers me an ISSO level II but the air force just calls me a Cybersecurity Analyst.
