QUESTION
Help w/ideas on essay “Why is it important for a person to be expert in his/her field?”?
Prompt cont. Think about it in terms of adults and present day society. The idea is to expose the phrase Jack of all trades – master of none and write an essay that argues that one should be a master of one trait.
In my essay I wrote that being a master of one trait is related to one’s salary, that customers want to be served by professionals and same thing about medicine. And my teacher told me that me essay if offtop. I don’t have any idea on what to write about.

ANSWER
It’s simple economics. To increase productivity in almost any situation you must specialize. Someone could pay 5 people to share the work of 5 different departments. Or they could hire an expert for each department. Key word expert. A lot of times people can do something, but they’d much rather pay someone to do it much better and faster. It’s kind of like working as a team. Think fast food, they have someone on fries, someone on grill, someone on register. THose people get into a rhythm and become more productive and things move much smoother than if someone took an order, made the fries, and made the burgers individually.. Why do people pay others to do taxes? Taxes are easy and only require simple math, but paid professionals are good at it, they know everything to include, in what order, and bang it out real quick no problem because they’ve done it 1000times.
