Talk with boss

“Could you take a look at LLM and find some use cases for our business to generate some revenue?” My boss said.

“Well, but I only have a very general knowledge about it,” I said.

“Okay please spend some time diving into it, then explain to me how it works, send an invite cc XYZ, and let’s discuss,” he said.

“Okay, let me try”. I said.

Asking my DS friend

“Hey bro could you explain to me in very very layman’s terms, how LLM works” I said to my data science friend.

“Sure, one analogy could be related to the job you are doing as part-time — interviewing”. He said.

“I was surprised, how?” I asked.

“Input is a CV plus a 60–90-minute interview process, so what is output, or how do you know if the person is shortlisted?” he asked me.

“Depends on the company requirement, most of them I will need to feedback: coding skill, design, and soft-skills,” I said.

“Okay now If I asked you to score a candidate, 1–10. you will write something like 9/10, 8/10, 7/10 soft-skills right?” he asked.

“Is it something like this?” I asked.
