Pricilla, in my experience the job title says little about what the content of your job really is. I have two colleagues. One is project leader, the other is team manager. We are with 3 people in the whole department, so there is little to project, and lesser to manager. Oh, yeah, I am a software architect though, in my job tittle that is. We all just do general programming work. Oh, no I am telling you a lie. My team manager approves my holiday requests. That must be a stressful management task. :-)
