English Job Slang

English job slang – Are you a jet set, Jane / John Doe or neither?

Are you a key player, a huckster or a drummer? Or maybe you have a dead-end job and need send some bragsheets out?

Being the most popular foreign language in the world and not particularly difficult to master, English has an enormous amount of words, according to Harvard University going somewhere around 1 million, under one fifth of which (ca 200k) you will actually in Oxford English Dictionary, and again one tenth of that (20-30k) is known to a native speaker. How many words do you think you know?

I wonder if you are familiar with job slang? Here are some interesting examples, that you might find useful. You might not find them all in regular dictionaries, though.
