dumbobruni: if I see more jobs with "ninja" attached to them at NY tech firms, I'm going to get stabby.

/Accounts Payable Ninja? Really?

You're right. All the ninjas hang out in accounts receivable.

abhorrent1: Who cares what your stupid, hipster boss calls you. Just put Marketing Manager on your resume. How hard is that?

No, do not put Marketing Manager on your resume unless you actually do marketing.  Marketing is *not* sales, or advertising or promotions, or client management.  Marketing is 1. identifying a target market, then 2. designing goods or services that will be bought by that target market. Once 1 & 2 are completed, a business will use salespeople, advertising and promotions to reach out to the target market and attract customers, but those activities are not Marketing.

Marketing just sounds a lot more sexy than, I call people to ask if they want to buy our product, or I build web pages per guidelines from the actual Marketing Dept., or I handle current clients and maintain the working relationship.  Those positions are Sales, Design and Customer Service.  They are not Marketing.

Quirky job titles can give the impression that worker and company alike are fun, hip and creative.

No, they can give the impression that the company is trying to give the impression that it is fun, hip, and creative.  Which inevitably means it's none of those things.  All it reminds me of is the "pieces of flair" bit from Office Space.

We live in a society where people eagerly embraced "social marketing guru" or any kind of "guru" as a job description instead of bursting out laughing at so ridiculous an idea so yeah, I can totally see some toolbag embracing it because it's so out of the box.

I guess some people just aren't satisfied with company names and slogans that are as pretentious as they are entirely devoid of meaning; the next obvious target would be job titles.

I asked for no title at my present job.  I credit that with now getting to do more things than I'd otherwise get to do.
