How To Get a Position

You can not be a researcher if you do not have a fancy research position.

  1. Don’t be concerned if the application deadline is only 12 hours away. It is will be easy to get your referees to write a letter for you.
  2. Collaborate with many authors, preferably big shots.
  3. If you aspire to join, for example, Microsoft Research, make sure that you use Linux and slag off at Microsoft products on your web page.
  4. When you give a talk, make sure you do not dumb it down; they are interviewing you because they think you are really smart; don’t give the wrong idea of making it too clear.
  5. Be one of the 24 people in the world who can understand and advance an important niche area of machine learning.
