THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING
We ask the question to every candidate we interview "What is the position/positions you are interested in pursuing?" Most candidates will check off a position such as Vice President and in addition many candidates experienced only in an entry level or mid-level role will apply for Executive level positions.
So, what is in a title? In construction there is definitely a baseline for qualifications with management titles and the required credentialing is also becoming more and more prevalent.
