With your business card saying everything about you, Solopress reveal the job titles you should avoid using at all costs…
Once upon a time, we had computer programmers. Now there are software architects and technical evangelists creating apps. Can we just keep this a job title for real architects who design actual buildings please.
Should be a given. Why would somebody want to hire a person or company who wasn’t an expert in their field.
If you really do feel like a freak at work, perhaps you should apply for the latest job vacancy at Circus of Horrors. They’re looking for a Wolf Boy or Girl with a minimum of 60,000 hairs growing on their face.
Talking of job ads, we’ve just seen an advert from a Cape Town bank looking for a ‘Data Capturing Guru’ with a passion for typing. What next… Environmental Guru (cleaner)? Wet Leisure Guru (lifeguard)? Revenue Protection Guru (ticket inspector)?
This one is straight out of the corridors of Disney Pixar or Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). And you’d probably get away with it there. If you add Chief at the beginning.
Sounds like a character from World of Warcraft but is, in fact, the Hebrew word for a trusted expert. Wonder if 1970s TV detective Kojak had Shaven Maven written on his business card?
Somebody who has been watching too much Goemon lately.
Unless you’ve got the moves like Jagger, leave this job title at the stage door.
Aren’t you too old to still be reading Harry Potter.
