I am a big fan of your articles on itworld. They are both insightful and entertaining.Great job, keep it up.
Here is my question:
Short: Does it make sense to be a jack of all(or multiple) trades in IT? Does it show that you are master of none?
Long: I have around 9 years of IT experience with big corporations like IBM, Travelport etc. Over the years I have worked in large scale leagcy mainframe projects and has acquired strong application development expertise in Cobol, DB2, CICS etc.
I have also done a fair bit of project management and is a certified PMP. I have got knowledge on Prince2(not certified) as well.
Additionally, I am strong on database side and is acquiring IBM DB2 DBA certification.
The question thats nagging me is how do I position myself in the job industry. Do I try and get a PM position? Or shall I try and become a DBA? The third option is to be a technical expert on mainframe either on development side or system administration side.
What do you think?
