Funky New Job Titles

Below is an extract from a posting we made back in 2008.  Maybe still relevant today:

In this new, new world of work

What titles are there yet to lurk?

The new MD

He or she or it could be:

Maverick Director;

Not your average reflector!

The IM is the person

Where intuition is the key

Or are they the Ideas Merchants

or just another fee?

IT stands for Interesting Thing

Technology drives the process

And we are told that knowledge

Must definitely be better than porridge!

The SD drives the sales

Or Sets Deception

Yet revenue collection

their fortunate projection

The HR director,

You’d better respect ‘er

Yet Human Potential

Sounds much more consequential?

Or politically correct,

You OLD cynical fool!

Now even that word

We must reject!

Where am I heading?

With this you ask

Must there be an end?

Or just another bend?

Charisma, inspiration

Or just hyper inflation?

Inspired Profit Mechanic

just more rats running manic?

But to get to the point

I forgot my route

Just tinkering

Under this hood.

I look forward

For backwards is hard

Because of this strain

And a lot of neck pain

Yes, its true!

In the race of life

Looking over my shoulder

I had it all misconstrued

No matter what you call yourself

As long as you with hand on heart

Can jump and not worry, off that shelf

Look out below!!! I’ve made my start!

  1. I like the alternative job titles. I have often heard HR referred to as Human Remains. Dilbert captured the cynicism of it all in the IT world best with Catbert, the evil director or Human Resources, and the pointy-haired boss
