Are you serious about Utility Infielder? Or were you just seeing
if we were paying attention? <G>
The problem with job titles like those in your list are that they
don't convey any real information. If I say "I'm a writer," people can get
a mental picture of what I do. If I say "Documentation Consulting
Specialist", heaven only knows what they think.
Maybe titles, like manuals, need to be considered in terms of what
you want them to do for you in a particular audience. Inhouse, "Project
Manager" might press all kinds of buttons having to do with pecking order.
To outsiders, or even inside a different company it might be code for
Admin Assistant.
Good luck!
