A Jack of All Trades

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

Depending upon which definition you read or hear, a jack of all trades is someone can do many different types of work or passable work in a many different types of work passably.

A Jack of all trades

However the full quote is actually a compliment.

The full quote is about some guy named William Shakespeare.

Yes, that WIlliam Shakespeare.

If you defensively describe yourself as “a jack of all trades” because you know the next line is a master of none, it is time to memorize the full quote and defend yourself.

And if you’re a third party #recruiter who has a candidate rejected for this reason, standup for them with the full quote and make sure you tell your client it was said about Shakespeare.
