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
