"The Practicum with Paragon One is one of the best programs I’ve worked on at Meta. It’s a low-lift, high-return project that really makes me feel like I’m giving back to future generations and building community both inside and outside of Meta. The Paragon One team carries most of the load and makes it easy for us to run this program while managing all of our regular day-to-day duties."

Brian Lee
Client SOLUTIONS MANAGER @META

"The Paragon One student team delivered a high quality work product with relevant and actionable outcomes. I was extremely impressed with their skills, insights, professionalism, and presentation skills.  Our first experience sponsoring a Paragon One externship was an unparalleled success and we are excited about the potential for future projects."

VP, PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES @PFIZER

"Paragon One has found some kind of magic formula. I was extremely impressed with the externs' thoughtful and creative recommendations, and the professional and reliable manner in which they worked with our team. They found several high-ROI opportunities we'd missed, and we're moving forward on them immediately!"

Jared Chung
founder & executive director @careervillage.org

"Externships are a great way for students to get hands-on experience with the business or industry they’re pursuing and a great way for companies to connect with future employees. The Paragon program allows us to spend more time working directly with students instead of managing logistics, which means more meaningful experiences for students and a much smoother experience for us."

“Overall the program was very well organized and did not take too much time from me and my team. The Paragon One team really made everything easy and smooth for us.”
