I need to reorder the credits on my personal page by job title. It is currently listed as Stunts first, followed by Director and Producer.

As I am well into the process of transitioning my career into director/producer work, the fact that stunts is the first thing people see when they view my page is impacting the future of my career in a very real way, and preventing me from getting director and producer jobs.

This must be changed immediately to the following order: Director, Producer, Stunts, Misc/2nd Unit. 

If I can do this myself please provide directions and I will be happy to make the change. 

Below is a link to my personal page.

It cannot be changed.  It is an automated process and lists them by whichever department lists the most titles.

Remember, the database is for making it easy for users to locate information, not for you to advertise your credits based on your preference.  So it shows what you're most known for.  If you end up with more "Director" credits at some point, it will list that first.

bluesmanSF is perfectly correct. The sequence is set automatically and cannot be changed manually.

You may be better able to accept this if you accept that this is not your "personal page"; it is IMDb's page about you. As such, the rules for acceptance/removal of data and the formatting are set according to IMDb's desires, not the wishes of the person named.

If you want a personal page, you can upgrade to IMDb Pro and subscribe to IMDb's Resume Subscription. This allows you to upload up to 100 pictures and also to set up a Resume page which you can format as you wish. (Just note that the pictures and the Resume page will disappear if the Pro subscription is cancelled or lapses.)
