This would make the answer earlier to Cork a Yes for Job and No for Skill on the grounds that the 'painting' skill simply refers to his ability with the brush. That sound fair?
I was genuinely surprised you let me use the Painting Skill earlier, but didn't say anything because I know when to keep my mouth shut.
I agree entirely with this interpretation. Jobs are supposed to represent the broader set of skills and experience picked up doing them, while Skills are finely tailored to more individual tasks.
