Should I choose Google ML over generalist interviews?
I work on applied ML at a well know public company but don’t have a grad degree. Recruiter severely discouraged me from taking ML interviews because the bar is extremely high and she has seen many PhDs with 10+ yoe rejected. She said I could still match for ML teams if I go through generalist interviews, and a few people she helped with in the past month had succeeded in this route.
I saw someone say it’s difficult to match for ML teams going through the generalist process, so is what my recruiter said true? Which process do you recommend if you have been there or are familiar with it? I’m unlikely to join any non ML team
