This is a very interesting meditation.. After reading what most of the monks wrote down here, it made me start to think about what people do call me..

What most monks said that several titles are handed so easily without even a thought for what's really the job or what the title should be is true.

I'm officially a Sr Systems Programmer. The funny thing is, though I received the official training of Programmer when I was in school, I starting taking the back roads and stop programming to become what I call myself nowadays, a System Admin..

Like one monk already mentionned, when talking to non-IT people.. I say "I work with computers" or something similar to that. Naturally, the "Oh! Really! I got this problem with my printer" comes up eventually. But when talking to any IT professional.. I'm a Sys Admin.. I'll even go and add Unix Sys Admin if I feel in a good mood.

Now the Sr thing. I've always thought it was nice touch to say that you had been in a company for a long time for doing the same thing. Personnally in a resume I will put down the Senior as it usually means you're either the guru at the place you're at in that domain or you've been there too long... but I like to think that the managers doing the interviews think more like the first option.

But honestly.. Im just happy to be a Sys Admin. Fits me better. Until I can become a Team Leader now that would fit me.. ehehhe

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
