If so, look no further. At least according to this tongue-in-cheek post in the Chronicle of Higher Education. Admitting that academe has a reputation for its “lengthy, jargony job titles” the Chronicle points to “a new website called universitytitlegenerator.com” that pushes that bureaucratic foible to the max. With one click you can generate a new, fake job title – and estimated salary – that would warm the cockles of any vice provost’s heart.
And if that title and salary isn’t grandiose enough all you have to do is click again until something more suitable comes up.
