A Job Title That's Meant To Impress

Companies are known to come up with creative job titles so that they can create a different image for an age-old role. A recent ad by a reputed bank caught my eye. The position that was advertised was “First Impression Officer”. After some research I found out that this position is better known as Receptionist. Why should they complicate such a simple thing? Are they bored of using the term receptionist?

  • Prabhu,
    You hit the nail on its head. This is definitely a morale booster.

  • umm,

    its still better then getting a visiting card which proclaims the bearer to be in charge of 'Corporate Executions', ADM has a story about that - seems people is his co used to decide their own designations and have the boss sign it off, so someone got this for himself..

    very neat methinks

  • Saint,
    that's dangerous. maybe he wanted to call himself CEO (corporate executions officer)

  • maybe they read Blink and got convinced that meeting the receptionist really does set the ground for the customer's potential business with the bank!
