Working in the creative industries you'll come across some pretty cringey job titles. Some will confuse you while others will make you weep for humanity. Here's a selection of the types of job titles that we've come across recently.
1. The stupidly long one
E.g. International Associate Director of Digital Planning Operations
Use: For people who like to feel really important.
In a sentence: I'm the International Associate Director of Digital Planning Operations. I'm basically in charge of everything.
2. The vague one
E.g. Office Admin
Use: For people who have so many little jobs instead of one big one that they had to use a very broad term.
In a sentence: As Office Admin, I help clients, work with creatives, attend meetings, solve problems, work with accounts, fix computers, stare out of the window and work with strategists.
3. The combo one
E.g. Co-Founder, Creative Director and Board Member
Use: Usually reserved for people trying to prove a point.
In a sentence: I have to have Co-Founder, Creative Director and Board Member in my job title otherwise people won't know how hard I work.
4. The "fun" one
E.g. Badass Marketing Ninja
Use: Generally used by people with very boring jobs but who don't want other people to know that.
In a sentence: "What do you do? Oh you're a vet. That sucks. I'm a badass marketing ninja. I'm awesome."
5. The guru one
E.g. Social Media Guru
Use: For people who think guru is a good job title.
In a sentence: Whenever I hear the word "guru" in a job title, I replace it with "moron".
