What job titles will fit my skills?



  • Dear All,

    I have been in IT for some 6 years now, following are the areas I am working and I have knowledge. As you know IT is broad, I feel titles like IT support, Desktop Support, Service Desk Analyst, System Administrator will fit for me, but I realised , in big companies titles may vary, so if I need to Google for new jobs, it is necessary for me know more about titles as well.

    I understand that, I also need to consider the Job description to understand if I can fit for that position, but still need to know commonly used titles for following skill sets:

    • Help Desk Support/ IT Support
    • Windows Server Administration (file server, AD)
    • Email Administration (O365)
    • Virtualization Administration (Hyper-V, VMWare ESXi)
    • Storage (NAS)
    • Anti-virus Administration
    • IP Telephony - Clients and basic knowledge on IP-PBX server
    • Basics on Networks
    • Network Monitoring
    • Remote Desktop Tools
    • Printers Administration
    • IT Assets Management
    • Backup Administration
    • Patch Management
    • VPN Management

    While my current title is "System Administrator", I have to handle all IT stuff, as know in SMBs. Just because my title is SysAdmin, I will not hesitate to go with "IT Support/Service Desk Analyst etc." positions, why not if pay is more than my current one.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    Variation is more in the SMB where titles are often fake. In the enterprise, there is variation for sure, but there is far more standardization. For example, system admin isn't even a potentially possible role in the SMB generally, but is the most common role in the enterprise.
