Years ago, particularly in areas of IT, to be an "analyst" in a job is looked upon as particularly senior in the field usually with a degree background and years of experience in a highly intensive environment. Even when getting a motor insurance if you are involved in IT you might get lower premium if you call yourself an "analyst". Recently the job title of an "analyst" has been extensively used by a lot of people such as office clerks and junior grade technicians. In job adverts for an "analyst" it is no longer automatically reflect highly experience with big salary attached, so is the term of "analyst" being overused and dumbed down?
BTW I have use "analyst" instead of "engineer" in my motor insurance application and my premium remains the same

Aren't cleaners now called 'environmental technicians' or something? (I think it's all to do with simply calling them a cleaner is said to be degrading)
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

What I don't get is some of these "analyst" don't actually do any analysing but still rely on being supervised and passing the buck.
