I actually used that quote in few inerviews

Which means the jobs changed often, which long-term is unreasonable. You'll probably find the people that liked it had very little attention to detail.

I'm an unashamed generalist, I make that work for me but I wouldn't like someone saying they were a jack of all trades. Underpinning any generalist should be a good grounding in the core of problems they explore. It's okay to be ignorant of new ground if it's not relevant. It's not okay to be ignorant of the basics.
