Traditional internships run over the summer and require 40 hours per week. Paragon One’s externships are available all year round and have flexible, 10-hour weekly schedules. Students gain the work experience they need to get hired as soon as they finish school.
Externships answer a defined and growing demand for convenient, accessible work experience. With Paragon One, students tackle real projects from top companies, working the hours that work for them.
Paragon One simplifies work experience, immediately connecting talented students to the global institutions operating in their field of study. Students are guided through an innovative online platform, then coached and supported every step of the way, with direct mentorship from industry experts.
Paragon One has a unique, low-lift, high-reward business model. It recognizes that standing out from the competition is a challenge for many students. Educational professionals agree. They know that strong competition is the number one deterrent to students entering an internship program.
Students who enrol with Paragon One have the opportunity to demonstrate their talents to potential employers at top companies. Those who stand out may even be offered jobs.
Paragon One’s externships are designed to fit around students’ schedules. They complete a self-paced project over eight weeks, working for 10 each week.
“I don’t think I would have ever had the chance to do a project with a company like Facebook outside of this. With this experience being through Paragon One… it felt so much more accessible to me and not like a far off unattainable goal. This program is extremely flexible – I have three jobs and despite that, I was still able to successfully complete all of my tasks and now I’m excited to present my work to Facebook!” – McKenzie Templeton, Eastern Tennessee State University.
