I'm in this job in a small company and my job title is just "Assistant"
However, the person I was assisting has left for over half a year already, and I've been doing more than just assisting. I do the following:
- Data imports/feeds
- Coding/programming of our release products (data collection software etc)
- Overseeing/coding/programming the automation of business processes (company has a lot of manual processes and processes that can be automated)
- Database development/management
What job title can I ask for, as I haven't had an appraisal for the year I've been working for this company?
I was thinking of a title in
Software and Database Developer Business Process Automation Engineer
Primarily because I am doing software development as well as database development and process automation. I'm coming up with ideas and implementing them after getting approval. Also, I am automating the processes that are manual and improving them.
What I used to do and what my employment was meant to cover was just being a backup to someone for data imports and a little coding here and there, and to just be support hence the title "Assistant" - I've been doing so much more since.
I don't know what to do. Am I, at the end of the day, just a Software Engineer? A Database Developer? A VBA Expert (I have been automating a lot of spreadsheet work with VBA)? I also just got word that in BPA (Business Process Automation) it is a lot of just designing the automation and not the actual coding/programming (which I do) so perhaps BPA is out of the question. I don't know how to title myself so that it will also help me when I look for another job (if I do have to leave this job)
I really could use a lot of help! Thank you.
