Not sure what to say on my resume about this. All I do is lead innovation workshops that end up with slides saying “you could really use ML over in this department!”

No time for trolls

Not trolling, I feel like if this recommendation gets actually used it’ll be great value, and for the people at the top actually at the table with clients making a decision it’s real thinking involved, but I’m basically just making slides and being told “don’t go too deep we aren’t implementing just vaguely wire-framing possibilities"

My senior rarely answers my initial emails/Skype messages/etc. Little background: He’s on another client so I know he’s likely busy but it makes it somewhat difficult to get things done.

I’ve been compiling questions, utilizing other team members, communicating with managers, but there are some things that just need to go through him because he’s the senior.
