re: to be multi-skilled or master only one technology? VIEW POST


For what?
What is your career goal? What is the area of expertise?
because ... as usually ... it depends.

From limited experience and research I saw that multi-skilled positions require more cognitive load, do more work to catch up with everything, cover a wider range of problems and they have similar compensations. So most likely, from a salary point of view and your brain sake is better to be an expert.

But ... if you want to work in a startup, is a requirement, most of the times they cannot afford to have a specialist because they have needs in 5-10 areas but only a few employees.

But ... you can be an expert on some technology that has little or no demand ...
