Conversation Killer

Whenever you meet new people, eventually the conversation turns to your occupation, your career. The question can come as simply as "What do you do?". I try and consider my reply before engaging my mouth but there is no alternative way of sugar coating my job. "I'm a Business Analyst for a global software company". Unfortunately it is very difficult to spin my job in any other way. Sure, there are variants but they just make the job appear more junior than it truly is, such as Reporting Analyst or even Sales Operations Analyst. The truth is very few people understand what the Sales Operations department in a multinational organisation actually do. Maybe I just need to be a little more creative with what I say I do to make a living.
