As it is I've stumbled to explain what my current job actually entails. In the early years it wasn't too bad - I was a Programmer/Analyst. Most folks knew that was business-speak for "computer geek". Time passed, my work changed and I became an IT Consultant. Try explaining that one to someone who's first question is "what is IT?".
A few years ago I left the technology/computer field and ventured out into a brave new world under the umbrella of Human Resources. My official job title today is Work Management Analyst. Clear as mud?
The other day someone forwarded me a job posting from monster.com and there it was. A concise description of my job. So for your reading pleasure, here is what I do.
- Business Analyst
- Customer Service
- Technical Support
- HR Module
- Requirements Gathering
So there's my day job in a nutshell. Next time someone asks what I do for a living I'm going to spout this off. Someday I hope to be able call myself Writer, but this is what it is for now.
What is your response when asked what you do for a living?
