Create The Perfect Job Title, Part I

This week’s blog is from Laurie Loftin, Program Specialisthelp-wanted-sign-1isp2ac

I need your help.  I have a task for you and it is not an easy one.  I ask you to create The Perfect Job Title.

The title must be descriptive enough so someone outside the profession has a general idea of what the work entails.  You want the chosen name to give the potential employee pride when announcing their position.   A perfect job title acts as a recruiting tool, so proper wording is vital to attract future applicants.  After careful consideration of every aspect of the job, condense the description into two to four words.

To assist you with this undertaking, let me give you a sampling of the normal duties required of the prospective applicant:

  • Protect the environment from harmful pollutants, impurities, and toxins.
  • Ensure a clean water supply and the good public health of your community.
  • Return reclaimed water, biosolids, and air back to the environment.
  • Conduct laboratory tests, such as biochemical oxygen demand, dissolved oxygen, suspended solids, and pH, required by the Environmental Protection Agency and state regulations.
  • Understand and abide by guidelines of the Clean Water Act.
  • Complete reports and monitoring of all facility equipment to stay within permits.
  • Work with potentially harmful chemicals and hazardous materials.
  • Understand microbiology in order to maintain a healthy ecosystem of microogranisms.
  • Stay abreast of the constantly changing technology in the field.
  • Monitor, operate, and repair all pumps, engines, generators, meters, digesters, blowers, centrifuges, aerators, and gauges in the facility.
  • Remain on call to respond to emergencies and breakdowns in equipment.
  • Maintain the current state licensing and certificates required for employment.
  • Perform other related duties as required.

So you have the assignment.  Craft The Perfect Job Title to sum up the job duties listed above in two to four words.  Please share your suggestions as a comment to this post or on our Facebook page.  Anyone who gives a suggestion is entered into a drawing to win an awesome prize.  I will compile the proposed titles for a future blog in which I share what led me on the quest for The Perfect Job Title.

Thank you for your help.
