25 Really Funny Job Titles in the Workplace

Say goodbye to “manager,” “associate,” and “customer service specialist” and say hello to “ringleader,” “idea alchemist,” and “service sensei” — yep, fun and funny job titles are all the rage right now. If your company allows it, or if you’re in business for yourself, why not have a little fun with your position title? While you might want to stick to more traditional titles on your resume (recruiters often scan resumes for job title keywords — and “alchemist” or “ninja” isn’t likely to be what they’re looking for), try getting more creative with your business cards, email signature line, and LinkedIn profile.
