Hello. I have been in the Data Science/Machine learning field for the last 5 years. I started as a Data Scientist. then moved towards a more Machine learning engineering role. For the last two years I have been working as a Computer Vision Engineer and I enjoyed the experience.
My employer is shutting down their business now so I will be out of job soon 😅 Looking at the market, it seems difficult to get a Computer Vision job (there are less jobs and most of them require PHDs). I am confused. Should I still look for jobs in the Computer Vision space, or should I just look for a Software Engineering job as they are easier to come by? I will have to prepare for interviews in both the cases anyway, but I am just wondering if I should spend all the time just preparing for a software engineering role where I might have a higher chance of getting a job soon.
I was wondering if people have been in this (or similar) situation before and can share advice or their experience.
