For instance, I'm an electrical engineer (by day... muhuhahaha) and focus on medical devices. Even though I'm not really a digital or analog guy I've made myself useful by knowing how to do enough of each and being really good at product development in general. That, and getting a bit lucky of course.

So... uh... specialize in your generality. Yeah, that's it...

I suck at career counseling.
Some good, inspiring stuff in there. I needed it this morning, thanks.
