Majorwise

Majorwise

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

Majorwise’s mission is to revolutionize how students find jobs out of high school. Majorwise was started by Peter Silverman and Max Robbins in December of 2015.

Peter and Max were college roommates at the University of Vermont, and both were having trouble finding local jobs for the summer related to their major. Peter ended up getting a digital marketing internship in Boston, and Max was a waiter in Cape Cod.

Neither of us could believe there were no local jobs we could find. So, we started investigating where all these jobs are.

It turned out, most of the companies in Vermont are small, as in less than 10 employees. These businesses don’t normally hire students for internships because internships are often too big of commitments.

They do need help executing marketing strategies, making graphics, and communicating with customers, but they can’t afford that for 30 hours a week. Figuring this out, Peter and Max created a simple job board called BeaconVT to help Vermont students find local jobs, internships, projects, and gigs..

The tool is already used by organizations such as Adidas, Boston University, Intuit and Kayak. The application allows companies to use chatbots in their communication strategy even if they are not programming-savvy businesses.

ChatBot offers its users a drag and drop interface to create bots. They also have access to the Academy section that explains more difficult aspects of bots creation.

ChatBot offers two matching systems that can be used alternately – Machine Learning (which focuses on whole sentences typed by users during a conversation with a bot) and Keywords (that is based mostly on crucial words or expressions). With the power of entities, that recognize the most popular common concepts like emails or phone numbers, chatbots can match inquiries correctly and capture important data (including those more complicated than numbers) as well.

The built-in Training section allows users to review all of the unmatched customer queries, that a bot didn’t recognize, and add them directly to the scenario without the need to dig into the conversation archives. Chatbots created within the application can be implemented in Facebook Messenger, Slack and LiveChat or as a chat widget..
