How to Hire Help for Your NLP/LLM Projects?

Do you need cost-effective help for your NLP projects?

While big tech companies have fully staffed Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning engineers, your company may be new to AI. At this stage, you may not be ready to hire a brand new team, yet you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to build some AI capabilities around your products and services.

So what are some ways to hire NLP and Machine Learning help and how can you cost-effectively do this?

Here are 4 ideas to get your Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning projects going without hiring a brand new team.

4 Ideas for Hiring Help for your NLP/LLM and Machine Learning Projects

How to build out your machine learning and NLP capabilities.

Note that while each of these may not be a perfect solution, it is a way for you to get projects off the ground. If you happen to work with the right team or person, you can stick to the strategy that works until you feel you’re ready to grow a team internally and your budget allows for it.

If you think about tapping into external help (e.g. NLP/LLM consultants &  freelancers), the two most important things to watch out for are:

(1) qualifications – do they have the skills for the type of capabilities that you want to build and

(2) reliability – will they do what they say they’ll do?

If these two concerns are well addressed, then the NLP development costs are just a matter of scoping and negotiation.

In this information age, almost anyone with a software engineering background can read a couple of tutorials and start implementing machine learning projects with starter code from GitHub. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as that.

It takes a lot more experimentation to produce results that make sense and can be used within an actual product or service. Knowing what experimentation to do and how to get real results requires years of experience and training in the subject matter. So, it’s important to do your due diligence before you engage external help.
