Question from:
M. Tucker in Australia

"I am constantly currently arguing with my boss over the correct capitilization of job titles. He says they should always be capitilized and I say they should never be. For example he wants me to type Area Manager but I always just type area manager. I have seen this in print in all industry publications and I never see anyone capitilize their work titles. Am I right?"
