Without job descriptions, these two job titles could very well perform
the same tasks and reponsibilities or be as different as night and day.
If you review the salary/rate survey I have been doing for the past 2
months or so, I just included a list of job titles as another breakdown.
You will see a variety of SAS job titles with associated salary/rates
It has my experience that job titles AND job descriptions vary widely
among companies AND WITHIN companies. In fact, it is not unusual to
have a job description and then do a variety of tasks not even listed
within the job description. It often has to do with your immediate
supervisor, current projects, what skills are needed (and maybe not
available) and other outside factors that can direct one's daily tasks.
The best jobs I have had in the past are those with no job titles or job
descriptions. These jobs provided me with numerous opportunities to do
tasks that I defined and decided if they were worth doing as well as
their significance to my employer. And another added benefit was there
were no salary ranges to work within - that is, I could negotiate what I
was paid for these undefined tasks.
I know this does not answer your question directly but I do hope I have
pointed out that job titles in themselves do not define a job.
