Example 3

If you really want to feel confused, do a search looking for a job as a TECHNICAL COURSE DEVELOPER. The wheels come off when it comes to this field. There are more names given to this set of skills, which are for the most part self-evident, than I could ever imagine.

Here are some:

  • Instructional Designer
  • Instructional Design Analyst
  • Course Developer
  • Course Designer
  • Instructional Technologist
  • Instructional Systems Analyst
  • Instructional Systems Designer
  • Content Developer
  • Technical Content Developer
  • Technical Writer
  • Technical Editor
  • Documentation Specialist
  • Documentation Analyst
  • Instructional Analyst
  • Learning Analyst
  • Educational Technology Developer
  • Training and Development Specialist
  • Learning Developer
  • Education Analyst
  • Technical Education Designer
  • Technology Education Designer
  • Technology Education Course Developer

This same exercise can be done for nearly every IT specialty. Whether database work, programming, web development, it matters not. Every one of these has a host of names given to the same job and same skill set.

This same exercise can also be done for other sectors. One that I was interested in when I was identifying the problem had to do with a job that I held at a medical college early in my career.

In that job, my title was Manager of Life Safety Services. That same job today has more names that I can list in this article. Some are Safety Engineer, Environmental Health and Safety Engineer, and Environmental Health and Safety Specialist.

It is mind blowing. And I hope this is a wakeup call to those of you reading this and looking for a good job.
