Short-term Paid Project Work with Paragon One – Skill/Resume Builders

Has it been tough to gain experience and hence, build your resume during the pandemic?  Here’s a great way to get some experience and differentiate yourself.

Paragon One partners with employers to offer paid “externships” to students.  Externships are a series of projects that tackle problems different companies face in the real world. Each project in every Externship is curated with specific educational content and industry experts that show students how to approach problems, arming them with the skills they need to solve real problems.

As a fully digital experience, Externships are convenient alternatives to internships that allow students to gain work experience and build better credentials and skills from anywhere, anytime.

New opportunities are added regularly.  Currently, the following are listed:

Non-Profit Consulting Remote Externship – PWC

Talent Acquisition Strategy Remote Externship – Pfizer

So check out Paragon One to get some real-world experience, build your skills, and amp up your resume.
