It is a nice article by Craig. You have expressed in excellent way too.

I was worrying about this matter a day before, when I was searching for a job in my locality. I have come across various JD that were surprising me.

for instance, an employer in IT industry expecting a employee with various skill set. They need a SSIS professional for building a package. But the job requirement will show the the person should have knowledge in all ETL tools in the market :).

I have seen so many like this.

my personal view is that this kind of environment will generate rat race professional instead an expert :(

An excellent analogy for those who are not necessarily of the SQL Server career pathing.
