Yeah I know. I’ve been doing this business for 25+ years, and I can’t tell you how many companies refuse to hire me because I’m not the narrow specialist with a PhD in Applied Mathematics & Economics. Any company that hires me is grown up enough to admit they don’t know what they’re doing. But the tautology is that hiring an ML guy means they do know what they’re doing. I’m not the ML guy, I am the guy the ML guy wishes to God he or she could work for, because I understand the territory — over 4 generations of software in a dozen industry verticals.
One of these days Deloitte or McKinsey is going to say something that hiring managers finally understand, and there will be a yellow brick road paved into the ordinary consciousness. Or maybe it’s this article.
I say hang in there folks. Remember if you’re looking for buried treasure, it helps to fall in love your shovel and have pride in your filthy, muddy boots. A good boss is very hard to find.
