    Normally I would say no, don't do that because there is a chance it'll be perceived as snooty. But a part of me would encourage you to try it regardless. Why don't you send out half your resumes with that title, and the other half don't? That way, all of your eggs aren't on one basket. And if you're noticing that you get more responses from companies when your resume is one way of the other, then you can shift all of your resumes to that format.

    Also, it's been 20 days since you posted this question and I'm very curious what you have experienced so far in your job hunt.
