Writing Tips - Job Titles and Capitalisation

  1. If you are using the name of the position instead of the person’s name, you should use a capital letter. Example: The President will speak after dinner.
  2. If you are writing about the position in general, you should not use a capital letter. Example: He always wanted to become president.
  3. If you are using the person's name after the title, you should use a capital letter. Example: President Obama.
