Industry Connections

CL/NLP Meet and Greet Industry Receptions

Each semester, the Brandeis Computational Linguistics program holds CL/NLP Industry Receptions – meet and greet events in which technical representatives from companies and organizations spend two hours talking with students about what their group does, and collect resumes from students and recent alumni looking for internships and full-time jobs.

Brandeis CL Master’s and CL-specialized CS PhD program alumni are often among the representatives who attend, and we typically have 10-15 different companies and organizations attend each term, over one to two reception events.

Past company and organization attendees have included representatives from Amazon, Adobe, Apple, Avoke, BBN Technologies, Babel Street (previously Basis), Burning Glass, Callminer, Cobalt Speech, Fidelity, ISI, Interactions, Jibo, Linguamatics, Lionbridge, Mass Mutual, Microsoft Research, MIT Lincoln Labs, MITRE, Nuance, Optum, Philips Research, Pryon, Rakuten, eviCore (previously QPID Health), RAMP, SAP, Semantic Machines, SIFT, Spotify, Talkler, Tibco, UFA, Verizon, and VocalID.

Our Fall 2023 attendee list is still being finalized, and includes representatives from:
  • Babel Street
  • Fidelity
  • Pryon
  • Raytheon BBN
  • Spotify
  • Starbucks
