One of my Advisors, Matt, is crazy busy as a Quantitative Analyst, but he took the time to understand my strengths and thoroughly improved my resume. Now it looks 100X better! I’ve learned a lot from him on industry technical skills. Another advisor, Lydia, allows me to open up more with my concerns, and Catherine always has my back. She is more than an advisor to me. She is a friend.
I learned a lot about the franchise investment market through both a micro and macro lens during the winter internship that Paragon One helped me land. I did detailed data analysis on competitors and made a presentation to the CEO. Before the program, I didn’t even know what a cover letter was.
All my Advisors are very understanding and genuine. They answer my questions and concerns from a realistic and industry insider’s perspective. They helped me discover my blind spots and prioritize important tasks that allow me to grow faster. Getting those insights have been very helpful.
My resume and cover letter have been improved tremendously since working with Paragon One's advisors. I’ve gained more confidence speaking and answering behavioral questions, and this helped me land a winter internship doing real-world competitive and financial analysis.
My Advisor, Stephen, measured my career progress relative to the other candidates that he’s seen, so I was always a step ahead. Thanks to Paragon One, I landed a winter internship at a VC-backed startup in New York City, where I finally got to apply my computer science acumen to help develop a mobile app. This experience, plus the continued interview coaching I received, resulted in Google inviting me to interview at their Mountainview campus.
The Paragon One advisors helped to build my confidence during the program. Tatiana gave me insights from the other side of the table as an experienced tech recruiter and HR manager, and Maeve, with her experience at Bain & Co., helped me fully understand the consulting industry and designed a helpful career plan for me.
