Help Needed!! Who am I?


I have found my title doesn’t really denote anything.  It may be written next to my name, but it doesn’t tell you what I do.  “Master of all Trades” doesn’t really work either!

I have decided to reach out and look for an accurate job title. Here is what I do:

I have a  “degree” in:  public relations, human relations, business, finance, economics, (although I somehow struggle to even balance my check book), political strategies (just recently moved over to the republican side), marketing, graphic design, fundraising, marriage, family and whining counseling.

I am expected to recognize the voices of all callers over the phone, recite from memory the exact dates of our company events, and if the clients’ signed up their spouse and buddies.

I personally accept blame for the poor mail delivery, high gas prices, long check-in lines, not having fresh coffee, the 50 degree days in June and not having the front office door unlocked at 8am.

I am able to find every unemployed or unemployable person a high paying, incredible job within two weeks. (More than I make all too often.)

I can make a meeting room warm and cool at the same time; I can program the computer, fix the copy machine, defrost the freezer AND replace the toilet paper with the paper the rolling the right way around (which most cannot do).

I can predict the number of people that will attend a banquet, before the registrations are even mailed.  AND I can cook-to-perfection every entrée, to please every guest.

I can forecast sunshine and 80 degrees the day of the golf outing.

I sit on three boards, four committees, and attend almost every event to make my appearance.

I am expected to smile, empathize, sympathize, console, and be politically correct at all times….

And I still find time to take every phone call, email, and unscheduled visit from clients, board members, prospective clients, and upset consumers.

I should tell you, my hours could range from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. (plus on call texting and phone calls.)

Oh and finally there is the all -inclusive bit at the end… any other duties that may be assigned from time to time.So, with all that, I need a title!  Please submit your suggestions!  Please no profanity!

  1. Sounds like your title should be “Executive Corporate Magician”!

    It is amazing how many roles our “jobs” encompass. Regardless of what we are called officially, we should take ownership of all the other titles we should be – even if we don’t put them on a business card. When we recognize those unspoken titles, we can embrace them, hone them, and use them to our advantage.

    Great post….as always.

    By the way….. the direction of the toilet paper is a matter of opinion….. 🙂

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
