What's in a Title

I think my current title is Analytic Developer.

Notice the lack of "Senior".

Which is odd.

Because I've been a "Senior" developer for the past 10 years.

And my last job, I was Reporting Administrator for the School Board, which was a Supervisor position.

A lot of people spend a lot of time worrying about their specific job title.

So it has some *bling* on LinkedIn or your business card.

I think having the word "Principle" or "Scientist" sounds good in the world of technology.

Yet I'll have to settle for whatever the company chooses.

Thing is, I'll probably change the title on the resume at some point.

And here's the funny thing, now that the word "Senior" dropped off my job title, my salary went up 33%.

Funny but true.

And so it goes!
