Interesting job titles

Can You Guess Which Job Titles Are Real or Fake?

So, what's really in a name? Companies primarily give titles to organize their staffs, but some also serve to boost egos and add a fun factor to their image. I came across some really, um, interesting job titles; can you tell which ones actually exist? Take my quiz!

We got to make up our own titles where I work, but we were a lot more reasonable about it. I do get to call myself CIO though, since I'm the entire IT department right now.

A Company can give you any working title they want to - or any title you negotiate. What matters is the real (standard) position it matches to. If Princess Paysalot is a payroll admin her title isn't reflective of her job. Try to put it on a resume and you'll be sorry!

I had the Marketing Maven title at one point...was always a conversation starter when I handed out business cards. :) I was talking to my husband the other day about some of the evangelists in our company and he thought that it was such a strange title and I suppose if you aren't in technology (or in religion!) it probably is but that title seems so commonplace to me these days.

hahaha, this was fun. the 1st one totally got me! The Grand Poo-Bah--hello! If you are the CEO, you can just about name yourself anything! As for the Chief Beer Officer, I'm surprise it wasn't at a brewery--I would have expected that title there. And yes, that job would be really fun. Husband's a home brewer and I am his taste tester (quality control)! Titles will come and go, just what you do is what really matters. But people are very hung up on the idea of titles--it also definitely dictates how much you get too!!
