Have-a-go marketers are no heroes

Have-a-go marketers are no heroes

What have professional services staff done to deserve such scorn from academics? Having worked in the marketing department of two well-known British universities over the past eight years, I can honestly say that the vast majority of professional staff treat academics with the respect and reverence their hard work and achievements deserve.

Calling all ‘Time Ninjas’: let’s put a stop to ludicrous job titles

Wacky job titles aren’t new. Google has employed a Captain of Moonshots since around 2010. Astro Teller – his real name – currently holds the post and heads up research and development. In another universe, he’d just be “head of research and development”. It’s not just the Wild West of tech that’s in on it. […] … learn more→
