you sound like a GYPSY or unicorn. read this: Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy | Wait But Why

my advise to you: titles are not everything. even a receptionist is an "office manager" nowadays. just do something that you are happy and fulfilled with and you will get there.

Thanks for the reminder. However, if I had stayed on in my previous job, 5yrs to get the title of PM wouldn't have been a problem. But I chose to get out. It's not that difficult to get a manager title if one doesn't mind working for a small company in Engineering.
