    That’s tough. On the one hand, the pd sounds like you actively manage new media. So “manager” seems to fit that one the best. But for events you “assist” in management. And for policy you’re more of an analyst than a manager (and, let’s be honest, policy is a beast that nobody truly manages. lol), but “coordinator” doesn’t fit. If you want to play up the new media and event side, I’d list them first, with policy as an add-on benefit. But if policy is still your main thing, maybe the “specialist” title is the most appropriate.

    @Mrs. Gremmlin:  I know it’s probably too late, but is “New Media” the best way to phrase this? I kept reading it as “News Media”, and even when I caught the error – it just sounded a little awkward. Because “new media” today will be “normal/old media” in 5 years? Maybe you could just say Media? Or, Technical Media? Just a thought!

    I would do something shorter, just bc everyone will end up abreviating it anyway and really, on a resume, you can adjust your title however you want.


    Policy Manager or New Media Manager would be my vote.

    I voted for the “Coordinator” title. It sounds more official than the others.
