Thought of the Day 2010 #53 - Job Titles

I came across a job title at work that was unbelievably long. It doesn't
even fit in the standard job title field on our network manager, Active
Directory. The title is a fairly long string starting with "manager". As
I mentioned on Facebook, it's kind of like: "Manager of Dohickey,
Blotto, Stickfigures and Diversity of Shape." It's as if they couldn't
come up with a generalized title like "Manager of All Good Things", but
instead, they needed to explicitly state each area of responsibility. I
think I'm going to change my job title to "Lackey of internet things
that most see as magic, databases, pretty graphics, email technologies
and jelly jam production." It would work, but I would need a much wider
business card.
