What’s in a Job Title?

Reviewing resumes, although tedious, can be fun and enlightening at times. I was interviewing a young man for a PC technician’s position at a client of ours. He noted his job as Replenishment Coordinator in his present position and I asked him to describe his typical day. As it turns out, he is a stock clerk at a grocery store! What’s with the title?

Then, of course, I had to think of the slow times in all business cycles I’ve been through, when I had to give out titles rather than raises to keep the troops motivated. Our sales team walked a little higher when they were called Business Development Consultants. During the tech bubble at the turn of the century, you would have thought we were a bank…everybody became a VP of something or other! I’m sure this young fella felt better getting up and going to his job as Replenishment Coordinator rather than stock clerk….even if it still did pay minimum wage.

Okay, so a Stock Clerk is now a Replenishment Coordinator and a Salesman is now a Business Development Consultant…what else is new? It’s been years since a Secretary became an Administrative Assistant, unless your boss is higher up then you may be an Executive Management Assistant. Mail Clerk is now an Office Logistics Coordinator, and a Filing Clerk is now a Data Storage Specialist! Wonder what all those techno-geek MBA’s who design and create buildings’ full of servers and hard drives into a data centers think about that? Would a dishwasher feel more motivated if his title were Director of Hygiene?

Over the years, traversing through many different company cultures and sizes, I’ve collected some strange sounding titles on business cards:

  • Chief Imagination Officer
  • Technobabblist (Technical Writer)
  • Director of Intellectual Capital
  • Visualizer (Ad agency artist)
  • Chief Morale Officer
  • Evangelist
  • Back-up Generator (VP of Sales)
  • Director of Mind and Mood (HR)

Most jobs titles vary from company to company, depending on the culture and reporting hierarchy used by the company. However, C-Level titles, like CEO, CFO, CIO, COO, always remain in vogue and continue to hold a universal appeal. On the other hand, every time I hear “Chief” something or other, I think of the Chief in the old Get Smart series. Would you believe. . . . ?

Let us know if you have a strange and/or wonderful job title.

Watch Dirty Jobs on Discovery Channel. That will give you some ideas… like Shark Suit Tester, Chicken Sexer, and Fainting Goat Farmer (and yes these are real jobs).

And be careful if you get promoted to Director OOutgoing File Unification Services! You may never get promoted, or another job, again.

Back in the saddle again

Well looky here. I fixed it! The problems was from a whole bunch of new thingamajibbies in the latest WordPress upgrade I installed. And even though this iteration is working again, I am still on a course of changing the website in its entirety. Why? Because technology has and will always change. There’s new software and hardware and more damn thingamajibbies that can enhance and help.

Besides it gives the creative muscles a workout!

Trying a repair job


Well, looks like my database has been overcome by fumes….or something like that. I’m trying to repair but I’m starting to lean towards a removal and start over job. Oh my!

Just Wondering…

I was just wondering if any of you that voted for the current president are filled with remorse and regret? I remember feeling that way a couple years after voting for Carter. He taught me that I had to take care of myself rather than depending on others. I’ve been  a republican ever since. :lol:

Say “Hi” to Mom

After 90 and a half years, my Father, Jonas Vasaris passed away on Wednesday, 09/09/09. Ever since Mom passed 2 years ago, he’s missed her terribly and that was the beginning of the end.

When I saw him last Sunday we went through many, many photo albums, reminiscing about many vacations and going back many years when he was fleeing Lithuania, teaching in Germany and emigrating from Europe.

He had a good life….he said so. One of his thoughts was, “If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have saved more money!” :lol:

Say “Hi” to Mom, Dad. I love you both!

Too Busy Posing

There is a price to be paid when a president throws a party every other night, weekends in Chicago or Camp David and poses for magazine cover after magazine cover….Too busy to actually do the job to which he was elected 8O

After 51 days in office, Barack Obama has appointed only 73 people to 1,200 jobs that require Senate confirmation.

At this rate he’ll never get done :!:

Did You Know?

A very interesting video about life, population, education and how it is all changing. Enjoy!

Did You Know?

There are 5 times the number of words in the English language today than there were in Shakespeare’s time.

3000 books were published…..today!

Bailouts Galore!

No new bailout today, but a bond reporter on CNBC, Rick Santelli, sure made some comments on the President’s mortgage bailout….

The government is promoting bad behavior… do we really want to subsidize the losers’ mortgages… How about we all stop paying our mortgage!

See and hear it all right here.

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays!

May you have the gift of faith, the blessing of hope and the peace of His love at Christmas and always.

Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m stuffed!
