Hey guys, work/career development related question and hopefully there's some folks out there who can lend some advice. For your trouble, here's an F40.
So I've been working for the same company for roughly 3 years. I started as a tech support rep in our Client Services team and was snatched up by the CEO in December of 2012 to become a technical evangelist for our company. Over the next year and a half, the role evolved, pivoted, changed titles a few times and eventually I ended up back working directly for our VP of Customer Experience (formerly Client Services, where I started). The new role that I'm in today is, for all intents and purposes, a community manager.
The trouble with the title of Community Manager is that it is easily misconstrued by other folks in the organization as well as external to the organization, taking on different definitions based on the context in which it is referred. My boss and I have been going back and forth for weeks about what to call the role, without calling it a Community Manager. I'm in charge of redefining and re-architecting an overarching strategy for user experience and technical resources, while championing for participation from internal stakeholders and prodding our engineering squads to rise to the technical challenges of the deployment in time for release. We just can't seem to find the right thing to call this role. Can any oppos out there help?
