What do I do about industry jargon on my CV?

November 10th, 2009

Question: I worked for ten years for the same technology company, and following redundancy, I put my CV together and sent it to recruiters. They haven’t seemed very impressed, and I haven’t had much interest. One recruiter says that she can’t work out what I’ve done, and that some of the job titles I’ve had are so technical it’s impossible to see my level of responsibility. I don’t want to tell lies on my CV. What should I do?
