Both — referral’s viewed as a more predictable talent indicator than just a resume

Referrals get your foot in the door, talent helps you shove the rest of your body through it.

This is why 99% of ads are trash. Imagine if Steve Jobs or NASA hired candidates like this. The world would be in a far less advanced state.

Referrals, if you’re not an intern, junior, a couple years out of school. Sucks, because I know a lot of people and yet when I ask for help, they say they can’t. Unless it’s in a public social group, to look good, they offer to send your book/resume. But do they? Not so much referrals, but friends hire friends.

yeah, why not both? lots of people have talent. if someone has talent and a person vouching, it's easier to know they're for real

Both. A referral can help get you some attention, especially if you don’t have a strong resume, but we hire the most talented person for the job.

Hi there,
I’m a bit newer to data science and recently read through a few academic case studies on ethical fairness in ML/modeling. Would love to start a thread to hear some more from data scientist/ML perspective.
The most harmful example I came across was bias in ML for the criminal justice system.

Is anyone currently in a data science/ML position willing to share their thoughts/maybe an example based on experience? Thinking about how to actively prevent this kind of bias in future models
