writes "A few years back, the somewhat un-managed and arbitrary nature of IT job titles was covered here on Slashdot (I suspect not much has changed since then.) However, I am now in the unique position of my Director asking for my opinion on a new job title. Being generous, he wants to to help me assure that HR properly classifies and compensates me, as well as a nod to my resume/CV and potential future employment.
So, beyond my personal situation, has IT made any progress on standardized or uniform job titles (and associated compensation)? A couple of quick searches yielded some mediocre results.
There are several journalistic articles out there about 'best paying job titles' ... but I'm simply not a Business Continuity Analyst or a Senior Design Architect. In reality, I manage the Systems Administrators and Network Engineers of a small IT department. As such, my current inclination is the boring, and nondescript option of "IT Systems Manager". Any suggestions for something better?"Link to Original Source
