Abstract: There has been heated discussion in the 21st century on the consequences of occupational evolution and changing employment relationship. In the midst of it, one subde but noticeable trend is the emergence of cross-discipline professions. For example, as IT infiltrates into non-IT disciplines, I am seeing the fast emergence of such crossboundary professions as IT Lawyers, IT Auditors, etc. These professions are nontraditional, because they straddle across two different disciplines. Possessing such a combination of knowledge is widely perceived as offering bright prospects for an individual in his/her career. However, the limited empirical evidence shows ambiguity. The turnover rates of the hybrid professions seem high, and the shortage of such professionals in industries persists. I suspect part of the problem is the difficulty in committing to two different sets of professional expertise simultaneously. Low professional commitment will eventually cause undesirable influence on work-related outcomes, such as job-related tension, performance, and turnaway, etc.
