Senior Everything...

Have you ever noticed that every IT person on LinkedIn is a 'senior' something, VP of something, or "executive" something something? I find this a lot in consulting, that people exaggerate their experiences and job roles, only to find out they don't really know as much as they claimed and end up failing at the new job role.  Don't do that to yourself.
Be honest and up front with your experiences and skills. They will eventually find out about you and then you have a bad reputation, along with potentially getting canned. Keep it real. I know that within the first two weeks of a new employee coming in, I can tell if they are what they proclaimed to be. I can also tell if they are going to make it in consulting or not. Just be you, and the rest will follow.
