How do I publicly communicate a dramatic demotion, e.g. on LinkedIn?
I've been a software development individual contributor for over 15 years, after which I've been leading software teams for a few years, including a fulfilling and successful tenure as Head Of Engineering (managing managers) in a small startup.
After that I joined as a group manager (again managing managers) in a bigger company, and due to several factors, have been demoted to an individual contributor role (the person I managed is my manager now).
As I kept strong relationships and believe I should do anything to support the team, this has not been a major problem.
The new role is actually even a junior role, as we have a career ladder and I lack the mastery in the specific technology. and need support. There is no expectation for a change any time soon.
My colleagues and friends all know about the transition.
Changing the LinkedIn title to "junior engineer" or "engineer", considering my career path until now, my achievements and my interets and aspirations feels wrong. On the other hand, it does not reflect the reality.
What would be your suggestion?
