You already received sound advice from two experts. But
let me stick in my two cents. In some companies, a title
like 'Jr SAS Programmer' may mean more in terms of corporate
information than it does in terms of your background. Or
it may be that you are on your way to 'SAS Programmer' but
have to be promoted in steps, according to HR guidelines.
Ask someone who won't take it personally if you want to know
the difference between 'Jr SAS Programmer' and 'SAS Programmer'.
Maybe your answer will be more reassuring than you expected.
