Navigating The AI Job Market - How To Differentiate Yourself And Land The Right Role


AI is undoubtedly the most exciting job opportunity of the 21st century. But there's a lot of important differentiation between Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and true AI. What's advertised as AI and what that entails can differ significantly depending on the nature of the company, their data, their needs, and their team. And as an applicant its critical to know what part of the field you fit into, and also to understand how to properly pitch yourself as the engineer a company needs. In this workshop we will explore ways to identify the many types of AI Engineers and other Data roles one might perform, and then to illuminate what companies are likely to need what type of AI help during the application and interview process. Most importantly, we will cover how to properly differentiate yourself as a candidate when applying for jobs, so that as an applicant you can successfully relay your abilities to the given data problems of the company you speak with.
