Doing a ‘superjob’

Feel like a Jack or Jill of all trades? Pretty soon, the rest of the office may be feeling the same way, if they don’t already.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, we’ve entered the era of the “superjob,” in which businesses of all sizes are asking employees to take on extra tasks that may not be in their job descriptions.

— Adapted from “‘Superjobs’: Why You Work More, Enjoy It Less,” Anne Kadet, The Wall Street Journal.
