So I am a graduate student (MS in Comp Sci with ML as my area of focus) who will graduate in May 2018. (Non-Ivy below average University )
My main query is that not all jobs are specifically mentioned that they are allowed for freshers right off the bat. Many require experience. I understand applying for any job that requires 4+ years of experience would be madness because I literally don't have the skill or the experience to even get through basic Resume check!
But is it ok to go for something that says 2+ years of experience? I understand that this conundrum has no definite answer but any viewpoint would be much appreciated!
Also, is academic time spent on Masters something that gets added as work experience?
P.S: I know this question is probably asked a million times. But since in the Similar Questions that SE suggested I couldn't find something. I am going ahead with posting this.
