I'm current working in dentsu, an advertising and PR company. I have a non-relevant background in the life science industry.


Tell me you’re gen Z without telling me that you’re gen Z


This is silly and too broad as a question - what do you want to do? Most career steps could seem "natural" with a compelling narrative… for you seems like anything in life science, ad/PR, data analytics, etc could make sense

I have a reinforcement ML algorithm that reads historical data for a stock and tries to make a prediction on its future price. The training data is 20 years of daily indicators and the evaluation is 1 year while the testing data is also 1 year. My problem is that it takes the algorithm almost 12 hrs to make one full run through a training session on my MacBook. I also tried with google colab pro using their gpus and tpus but they’re only slightly faster. Is there any way to speed this up?

Does anyone have advice/ experience with disclosing or advocating for your ADHD support needs in highly toxic environments? Or getting formal disability accommodations?

I’m on a VERY toxic project where I really need accommodations but I am scared there will be repercussions if I personally disclose my ADHD like I have on past projects.

I submitted an HR request for accommodations and it’s been ignored for over a week.

I really can’t take another week of spending every day crying.

Completely screwed up a final round interview on Friday. Oh, well. I’ll have to step it up next time.
