Last night, I learned I officially got a new job title. I feel very uneasy announcing the news this way. This essay is scary for me to write and it is frightening for me to publish. For a long time, I really didn’t think that job titles mattered very much, and I even thought that they could be hazardous to a work environment and to yourself. So why is this important to me? Why should titles be important to anyone? Why write an essay about earning a title?
