    Job Title Euphemism Game

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by GaleSkies, Feb 3, 2012.

    Hey guys, The Mods are doing such a good job keeping the junk posts off our boards, but I saw a thread that got deleted and thought of a great word game.

    The kid had a job interview coming up and was looking for something to put on his business card that sounded better than "Entry Level Programmer". He wanted something a little more colorful that would make him stand out for his interview.

    Well I sure as hell wouldn't put "Customer Sales Associate" on my business card. It may just match my current job title, but would pretty much say "I'm content with with using my hands to clean up gutter sewage"

    Rule one: provide a job title euphemism for the post above yours.
    Rule two: post your current job title, or a job title that you'd love to hear a euphemism of for the next poster.


    So, as with most of the business world, the name of the game is Euphemisms. And I'll start with finding a euphemism for "Entry Level Programmer"

    Have you ever worked on a project by yourself? Independent sounds much better than entry level and can be justifiably true. "Independent Programmer" but that's too general on its own, more descriptive adjectives are what will make it stand out. Maybe some computery word that describes the type of programming you have an affinity for. "Independent Network Programmer" or maybe "Independent Creative Programmer" for a taste of development. Or to make it a true euphemism we can be descriptive about the entry level aspect. "Independent Initiate Programmer"

    For the next poster, use "Customer Sales Associate" and try to give it a little flair.
