50 Bulls**t Jobs: Business Intelligence Analyst

April 26, 2007, 8:55 PM UTC

Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader from New Jersey writes:

My position title: Business Intelligence Analyst Why it’s BS: The position title itself is BS.  We’re analysts..that’s it.  Why tack on the cheesy ‘intelligence’? It’s like they’re trying to make me feel smarter at work by giving me a BS title.  We’re analyzing other company’s data because they’re too lazy to do it themselves.

Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
