- Job Title / Job Description Mismatch 3 answers
I previously worked for a company providing a service to a lot of marketing companies. A lot of these have an "art department."
So, when structuring, my boss emulated those marketing companies and called the department that takes the graphics from the company and modifies them slightly (if at all) and puts them on the layouts per the 'specs' (stuff customer puts in the e-mail cross referenced with the many and subjective functionalities of the printer and more often, the printers operator) the "art department."
In my position I don't feel like the title "Graphic Designer" or "Graphics Developer" are appropriate. However my boss insisted on calling me the "Art Department Director."
So how does one handle this hyper-inflated position nomenclature? How can I convince my boss to have a more realistic job title?
