You are educating the other person on the subject of you.
So instead of just saying your title, explain something he or she might not know about your work or industry.

Make it personal and talk about your journey: talk about your dreams and aspiration, and about what led you to where you are today, etc.
Start your next response with “I help people…” because it usually takes the stereotype away from your job title.
For example: You can say you're a copywriter or you can say you help companies tell compelling stories about their brands.
Tell a story about something that was fun or inspiring to you at work.
It will help you make connections: the brain activity of the storyteller and the listener mirror each other, despite the fact that one person is talking and one is listening.
To the question 'What do you do'? we usually give one-word answers, that allow people to categorize us and create stereotypes. For example:
Pass on the details about you and your work that are relevant to the person you’re talking to.
Think about what experiences you have that will resonate with the people you’re talking to or be able to help them out in some way.
You’re doing everyone a favor by being honest about what you’re good at and what lights you up.
We need more people who can speak frankly about the value they bring to the clients and organizations with which they work.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
