I know when we were small the answer to this question was really simple

Lawyer

Doctor

Teacher

For some people it was even

Nurse

Mechanic

Typist

But you see these days when i'm filling a form and i have to fill in occupation i just quietly write "Telecomms" but really really that is not an occupation now.

Abi?

I guess the working place has evolved now to the point where people just don't bear orthodox jobs anymore..

Occupation the world over has evolved so a lawyer 20 yrs ago might call himself a Legal Adviser or Company Secretary in the world of today.

I was filling a form and trying to put my job title.By the time it reached 2 lines, i realized I was describing my job and i did not know the "occupation" Occupation is no longer simple...

this reminds me of an uncle saying to someone who said they were studying marketing... "so are going to become a marketerist?"
so in that vein, you are a telecommunicationist. :)

Evolution aside, depends on the impression nyou are trying to give...

Custoer service per resume,

Telecoms for the others who would not understand.

And for my main people, I am a bloody call center agent.

My old job was more interesting I was anything from a business process analyst/consultant to an office assistant. One job but so many titles.

consultant/ accountant

SHE said...

LOL !
Your occupation cannot be telecomms o! you better find a part of telecomms to belong to. Either consultant or Engineer or even specialist, whatever that may be.

In these days of so many job descriptions it really is difficult to call yourself something.
The easiest thing that comes to mind is specialist, with an appropriate prefix. eg, hair specialit (hairdresser), communications specialist (Call center operator?) LOL!!!
