Have you ever called a plumber to the house and said "hello mate, the water pipes are through there. Oh, when you're done would you mind putting up these shelves, hanging that door, tiling the kitchen and weeding the garden? Thanks. Oh and I've not got much cash so could I get this done cheap? I'm sure it won't take you long anyway" Of course you haven't! But I bet it sounds familiar. It seems to be an increasingly popular theme in creative jobs that employers want one wage to pay for a plethora of, let's be honest, very different skills - encouraging a "jack of all trades, master of none" situation to emerge. Does anyone else think this is the case? And if so where do you think this could lead to in terms of how people in the industry work and how newcomers are educated/employed? Or am I wrong? Should a "designer" be skilled in all forms of design and a "builder" be just as skilled at electrical work as he is at roof tiling? Or should we compare it to a joiner who "only makes tables" as opposed to all kinds of woodwork? Discuss!
