Job Title – Data Analyst and more

I enjoy my job, particularly the part of analyzing problems and coming up with creative solutions. But what is my job title? What exactly do I do? What do I tell people what I do for living?

My current job title is Data Analyst. My previous job title is Database Analyst. Prior to that, my job title was SQL/SAS Developer. Prior to that, it was Technical Advisor. Out of all these different titles, I like the Data Analyst.

It seems to me that the job of a data analyst is used interchangeably with various job profiles like those of business analyst, database analyst, business intelligence developer, ETL developer, Data warehouse developer, systems analyst and reporting specialists.

Here are 4 questions I am trying to articulate (in the following order):

  • What does my typical day look like?
  • What skills are in my toolkit as a data analyst?
  • What responsibilities does a data analyst job description entail?
  • If there are two sentences I can use to tell people what I do for living, what are they?
