What's in a name?
Do names mean anything to us? Judging by the way job titles are named – or shall I say, renamed – nowadays, it’s evident that giving appropriate names to match the job really matters.
I guess people are more conscious about their jobs and the positions which they hold whether it’s an executive or a non-executive position. Furthermore, as time passes, their job titles need a boost too to keep up with the times.
Let’s take a look at the Job Title Evolution:
- housewife – domestic engineer
- janitor – floor engineer
- garbage collector – sanitary worker
- postman – mail carrier (esp. in U.S.)
- general clerk – administrative officer (esp. in Malaysia)
- doctor – medical consultant
What else is in store? Well, here are my own versions of what we might be applying for in the future:
- teacher – education consultant
- lecturer – tertiary consultant
- tour guide – travel consultant
- soldier – military personnel
- professor – academic scholar
- police officer – crime buster
- news reader – information provider
- pilot – aircraft navigator
- taxi driver – passenger consultant
- construction worker – construction architects
Is there anything else that you’d like to add to this endless list? 🙂
