thread whats your ideal job title ?
I'm pondering whether 'director' or 'founder' or 'principal' is the best job title for my new business cards.. or if that's pretentious nonsense

But then the urge is strong to put "absolute legend" or "head of the joint chiefs of staff". "VP of pottering about",

permalink the people who own our company
are 'senior partners', which seems about right. We don't have any non-senior partners though.
permalink Saying that would nicely imply that there are more people than there really are
. My cat could be the junior partner
permalink Give yourself a C suite title.
Just do that.
permalink CGO
and never tell people what the G stands for
permalink Why the hell not?
But CMO, CEO, COO, CCO - any of those are worth having had.
permalink I liked the main character in The Hippopotamus
describing a CEO as '...kind of like a cross between a Managing Director and a... cunt'
permalink CIC?
Cunt in charge
permalink Groping?
permalink Isn't that a reserved term
for companies that are actually set-up as partnerships legally?
permalink Director of Better.

I'm shifting stuff from my work laptop to my wife's desktop, and installing software. I'm going to miss that laptop, it was rather good.
permalink Loafer in Chief
permalink Emeritus Professor would be nice
but those bloody yanks and their job title inflation have really destroyed the academic hierarchy, what with them calling everyone from a PhD student doing teaching support upwards 'professor'.

in my general field, the people who really know their stuff tend to keep it simple...if someone just calls themselves 'Engineer' despite clearly being quite senior it normally means you can take them seriously

Did a 5k up in Callander today, didn't hang around for the prizes but suspect I may have got silver in my age/distance category. The other guy beat me.
permalink miscounted, I got bronze in M35+ category
and also came last in the category
permalink Do you need a title?
?
permalink this is a fair point
I've gone for Principal, but I may scrub it.
permalink Checked into a Yotel
In the bowels of the airport. Or possibly a submarine? Definitely more "cabin" than "room".
permalink 0745 flight
Could do with breakfast, it's from the other terminal, got a bag to drop, how long is early Sunday security going to take?
permalink too late now but
it'll be quick.


permalink It was
Had overpriced but ok breakfast at Garfunkel's, in what is now very much the easyJet terminal. I think whilst I was there there were three non EZY flights on the departure boards
permalink if you had time for that
you clearly got up too early.


they really hide the pret in there ... in fact in both gatwiick terminals it's as far away as possible, i suspect this is deliberate... to make people walk past everything else
permalink Ive used the one in Schiphol a couple of times
weird. but workable.
permalink Just booked flights to Antigua,
and will need to sort travel from Antigua to Monserrat nearer the time.

Not really looking forward to nine hours on a plane with a toddler.
permalink My job title is 'Principle Strategist'
My cards just say 'Manley'.
permalink Principle?
Or Principal?

Because I'm not sure I'd like to see your strategy for principles.
permalink I once registered for a trade show
on a slow Friday afternoon, and thought it would be hilarious to put my job title as Supreme Chancellor. Arrived at the show and was handed my badge to find that they see job title as the most important bit, so while my name and company were in normal type, I had all caps SUPREME CHANCELLOR twice the size across the middle of the badge.
permalink An aquaintance of mine has "Air Vice Marshall" on his credit card bill
I don;t think it's on the actual card...
permalink Go for "Top Banana"
or "International Man Of Mystery"
