Hi there, Great post and a relief of sorts for me! I seem to quite fit into this definition of jill of trades or whatever you like to call it. The problems is that many big as well as small companies don't think of it as advantageous. I had HR from companies such as Microsoft and smaller ones give me an impression that that I don't fit because I am too wide in my interests and experiences, which for them implies superficiality/shallowness in general and lack of experience in their desired skills in particular. So while I agree with your points, practical-wise it is hard to find as open-minded a company to be employed. Even Google and Yahoo have issues with this at least in MENA where I was.
