However, if you do specialise, you stand a *way* better chance of
getting subcontracting work and/or getting onto *really* big
gigs with daily rates you'll love.

*Lots* of big clients routinely job stuff out to specialists,
either directly or through their main roster agency (which
they may or may not be aware of - sometimes the agency
will keep it quiet).
