I think the biggest problem is that some companies, hr, recruiters or even hiring managers misunderstand years at job for experience.

Experience in data science comes with projects — work projects, school projects or pet projects.

I’ve hired dozens of data scientists and I’ve seen fresh graduates with plenty of experience and people 10 years into their careers with none.
