Approximately one year ago, I was virtually moving from one company stand to another at the 2021 ULB job fair searching for student job opportunities. Never in my wildest dreams at the time did I imagine that I will be standing physically behind one of these stands at the next VUB/ULB job and internship fair representing edenceHealth.
This year’s February 23rd was an unforgettable experience in my career journey as I was trusted alongside my team lead, Jared, to share and showcase edenceHealth to ULB students. It was demanding and challenging but at the same time, exciting to be able to share how we impact patient lives through data science! I was happy to see that many students from different departments (computer science, biomedical sciences, biology, mathematics etc.) stopped at our stand to learn more about what we do and our opportunities. Specifically, our in-house tools, edenceMapper and edenceReviewer, which are designed to use Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods to map source medical codes to OMOP-CDM standard codes received attention from computer science students.
edenceHealth is a young and fast-growing company with a very diverse and collaborative team, making a fun and enjoyable working environment. Students were attracted by the opportunity to shape our story! Overall, it was undeniably a pleasure to visit my alma mater and be part of the 2022 ULB job fair. We are looking forward to the many more job fairs, and at the same time, hoping that one or more of the students will become a member of the edenceHealth family.
