This question already has an answer here:
In my professional life, I've pretty much always worked at small companies. Usually, I've had a title that I seemed to fit my primary or perceived role (e.g. Developer or IT Manager), but in many cases, I'd be doing multiple different things over time. I never really worried about it much... until now.
Lately, I've been trying to answer the question "What do I really love to do?" and "If I had the perfect job, what would it be?". But I'm having a hard time mapping these answers into something that translates into a role or job title. Because after that I'd like to see about shoring up any deficiencies I have in that role.
Is there an authoritative resource for being able to know what a particular role does or job title maps to a particular set of skills?
Or am I just asking for trouble since job titles are just names and the real meat is in the responsibilities and duties that are given upon employment?
