There's a lot of job listings that want 3 or more years of experience. I currently have about a year's worth of job experience. I'd like to apply to jobs that require 3 or more years of experience and have a decent chance of landing them. I do know that someone who does have 3 or more years of experience will more likely get the job, but I'm just trying to do the best with what I've got.
Here are the ideas that popped into my head about how to make up for the lack of work experience when applying to a job that requires more seniority:
- side projects that I built and deployed myself
- GitHub repositories of code I wrote
Does anyone have any other ideas? I'm located in Europe, if that's relevant, but am thinking of applying to both remote European and remote United States jobs. I have read this answer, which is amazing and is in line with what I'm suggesting here, but was wondering if there's any additional things I could do to demonstrate my experience. I'm asking in the domain of machine learning engineering.
