Does the title matter during the first stage of green card application(Perm Labor Certification)?

Asked about 1 year ago - Santa Monica, CA

My current title is Software Developer, but the company use "Senior Software Developer" during the recruitment process and all the material preparation process. Will this be a problem? But I will be promoted to a Senior level position soon and A salary increase too. There is no big change for my job duty.
1) Can I use "Senior" level position for recruitment process while I am still not at Senior level yet?
2) Can My salary have big increase during the PERM process?

thanks
