[D] How to prepare for ML jobs as math/stat major？
I am very interested in ML jobs, but all I learned from class are math/stat theory. I used python a lot in Econ research tho, but only did like data cleaning. I tried some kaggle notebooks and getting started competitions so know a bit of the general procedure. I also watched some videos of Andrew Ng.
I feel like I now have a general ideal of how ML works, and can understand the code, but How can I become good at ML and find a job?
Another question is will a master in Econ useful for finding ML jobs? I am one third into the program but not sure if I should finish it. The program let me choose business analytics classes it do you think is worth it?or I should try find a job with my math undergrad directly?
Thanks a lot
