If you're getting the feeling that what you're consistently working on has moved beyond your title, it may be time to do some digging.
Start by researching different roles in your industry and field. Take notes:
If you see job titles that look like what you want to do, even if it's not what you do now, you can work backward from there - figure out what the level below that is, or find people in that role and see what their previous title was. That will help you title yourself to be successful in your next career step.
Be careful of "unique" titles. You'll see job posts for things like "Marketing Guru" or "Happiness Maker" or something similar. Just skip those—they're too vague and don't map to anything that will help you down the line.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
