I was given the title of "IT Technician" for my first job. The funny thing is: I have no clue how to be an IT person. I am a programmer. I made a program for our company's archive. Now I'm going around to various 'science machines' and auto-collecting the data from them. The data goes into our database and is used in our enterprise system. I actually call IT a lot for help with network issues and hardware purchases, but I have no idea how to do any of that.
My boss's boss recently pointed to me in a meeting and said, "He's our systems analyst." After looking up what that actually is, it makes sense. Heck, I've even decoded binary from a machine that is twice as old as I. That system totally got analyzed.
If I don't get my title officially changed with the company and report a different title on my resume, that is BAD, right? Would it be a messy scenario to attempt to get this changed?
