Why I will miss my boss…

Me: I’m updating my resume. What’s my official job title here?

Boss: What do you want it to be?

Me: Um…

Boss: Because we can make it whatever you want if you think it’ll help. Usually you’d be referred to as a Systems Engineer.

Me (pondering the possibilities): Well… never mind. Systems Engineer works just fine for me.

Besides, I don’t think anyone would buy the idea that my real job title was “Most Awesomest Employee Ever to Grace the Company Tech Support Wonder Dude.”

  1. My title was recently upgraded to Major Gifts Officer, but I have always wanted my title to be Queen of the Universe and Ruler of Carpathia and all that is Good and Right.  It’s catchy.

  2. I just add an “Xtreme” to whatever job title I had.  Xtreme Library Page, Xtreme Projectionist, Xtreme Transportation Security Officer.  If they ask about it, I say I’m so Xtreme that I tear all the sleeves off of my shirts and disregard the established rules of spelling.

  3. Yeah, funny how satisfying (on different levels) a cool sounding title can be.
    They can also scare off potential employers.
    Oh, to find that happy medium. smile

  4. I wish cool titles equated to cooler new job offers.

    Though, I’m a little afraid to see what “job” offers SEB would receive from the titles I have given him in the past:

    Xtreme Sexy Monster,
    Xtreme Master Pooter,
    Xtreme Captain Underwear,
    Xtreme (Beloved) Gamer Geek,
    Xtreme Most Fabulous Husband (in the World)

    etc.
