I’ve just found out that my annual review will be next Wednesday. I’ve been looking forward to this. I rarely get the chance to sit down with upper management and discuss my goals, at least in a setting where I feel like anyone may care. I’ve officially requested a re-titling to “Programmer/Business Analyst”. I don’ t believe my current title reflects all of what I do. While it may not actually mean much in the end, it affects the way others view me. I’m hoping to get a mandate to do more coding as part of this title change. This is the most direct I’ve been about this, but after almost a year and a half since I got my certification, it’s getting pretty old. I’m trying to find a way to stand up for myself without making the wrong impression.
Wish me luck, I’ll update Wednesday evening with the results!
