Information Technology Specialist in Santa Fe:
""Other duties as assigned" can mean ANYTHING."
This job title is so broad and ambiguous that you could end up doing almost anything. I called myself an IT "jack of all trades" in my interview; it seems like they didn't hear the "IT" part. And I'm not paid what I'm worth (or what I used to make) - I traded a lot of cash for the assurance that I can take leave without pay to travel when I run out of paid leave. Was that a fair trade? Only time will tell.

I encourage you to take pride in what you do because your Project requires and needs you. And while you are treated as a Second Class Citizen most of the time, have faith in the fact that regardless they realize they need you, you are the one "umbrella" that helps and makes them succeed.
