I am a computer science Ph.D. student, and my advisor is in a different department. My work is very computational, and kind of CS related, but my advisor mostly wants to publish in journals outside of computer science. How will that affect my career prospects? I don't want to be a professor, but it would be nice to secure a good job in industry.
More specifically, I heard that Google/Facebook/other tech companies mostly give the interesting projects to people with Ph.D.s, and give more boring projects to people with bachelor's degrees. If I have a Ph.D. in CS, but don't really publish in CS conferences, do I still qualify for an interesting project?
