IT position title changed? - during recruiting ?

By oiwkaw ·

Please consider situation described below:
- recruiting process, agency is hiring for "Software engineer"
- talked to the company directly - and finally I was offered position "IT consultant"
- just received all the papers (via dhl), and in contract I've found position name "Software Analyst" (I was confused here)

Please note, that now I am on the position of "IT Analyst", and I was heading for "Consultant" as a next step.

Anyway, before, I talk to the company, I'd like to have your opinion about it, -> changing position name ? or maybe the correct paths? (eg. there is nothing to fight for ?).

thanks in advance for any opinions,

Ask them

This smells of a bait and switch tactic where you were asked about one position, and when the offer letter comes it smells like another one. Just see what you walk into on day one without asking.

but, let me tell that I am "very surprised" such an "unprofessional approach" from "professional company" (or maybe I should not be surprised ?! )

of course I'll ask them about it, just wanted to know if somebody seen anything like that (also let me clarify: no other conditions of contract changed: eg salary is the same, ...)

or maybe something changed in the industry and "IT Analyst" position == "IT Consultant" now ?
