I can’t agree with this more Tobias. You’ve hit the nail on the head with so many of these insights.

Coming from a freelance design world, I don’t have this experience directly in employer market, but even in the freelance business the same themes occur.

The good news about this is: if you are “t-shaped” with a broad range of supporting skills, and you’re confident in your creative abilities no matter what the process, and you have excellent professional communication skills, it’s very easy to stand out from the crowd and get the job or gig you’re after.
