PowerShell padawan learner here.

Like the subject says, Looking for a script that will change users with the job title of “X” to the job title of “Y”. Thanks in advance everyone.

What do you have so far? Are you using the ActiveDirectory module or the Quest AD module? Will you be reading from a text file or merely searching for a known title from all AD accounts?

If you’re using the MS cmdlets, something like…

Get-ADUser -filter ‘title -eq “old”’ | Set-ADUser -title 'new’

The Quest cmdlets support a similar capability, with a different syntax. Note that if you have a LOT of users with the old title (like, more than a few hundred), you may need to take a different approach.
