MORE DETAILS
Program Overview

Experience the ground floor of a new AI-driven startup service connecting filmmakers and musicians. Videos need great soundtracks. Music artists need promotion. Thematic makes it happen! With this internship, you will dive into the business of music head first. In this externship, your work will be to explore the entire eco-system of the music world: artists, publishers, managers, and content creators. You will research leads and potential growth opportunities as well as have a meaningful impact on an early stage startup.

Externs Will
  • Research, evaluate, and collect key information for music artists who would be a good fit for the platform.
  • Research, evaluate, and plan partnership strategies for independent music labels that work with multiple artists that could be a good fit for the Thematic platform.
  • Analyze data, include the basics of spreadsheets, data cleaning, correlation, regression, and data visualization.
  • Create a presentation summary of BD trends and opportunities for Thematic

Qualifications
  • Ambitious undergraduate students with an interest in the music and content creator industry. While there is no requirement or qualification to be a content creator or independent artist, prior experience with both types of creators is encouraged.
About
Thematic is a platform marketplace that connects media creators with music artists. We are a two sided marketplace where content creators and music artists come together and support each other. You'll enjoy working here if you love music and are excited to work on a platform that empowers artists and creators. We are passionate about what we do and really believe in influence as a form of currency. You'll be at the forefront of learning how a startup operates in today's digital world and at the intersection of influencers, music artists, and technology. What is the problem we're trying to solve? For creators we are saving them precious time when looking for music to use in their videos and allowing them to monetize their content on YouTube while using great music that is not stock. For artists we are helping to promote their music to a broader audience via the YouTube creators influence and driving conversions to grow their social presence via these collaborations. Artists need to get their music heard in an era of so much noise and 40k plus new songs on Spotify every day and creators need a faster solution to provide great music and not be demonetized.

"My externship with HP was a great example of how a single experience can change the course of a career. After my externship, I started getting interviews, and I started seeing my resume downloaded by recruiters. People called and said they wanted to learn more about the HP Tech Ventures Externship. It was something they’d never seen before, and they wanted to know more. Leveraging this experience has helped me in more ways than I can count, and now I am a summer analyst at an investment bank!"

"I found myself as a recent graduate with no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Paragon One offered an exciting opportunity to explore and work with real-world companies alongside a cohort of like-minded individuals. The most significant benefit as an extern is the flexibility for career discovery. As someone who had almost no industry exposure, I had the chance to build my understanding of the marketing industry by researching ad-tech solutions and presenting my findings to the Facebook team."

NOW WORKS @Empire lakes productions

“I really want to emphasize that Paragon One offers many opportunities not just in social media and marketing but in finance, accounting, more. These unique and tailored experiences are a great way to not only develop in areas of your own interests but to also expand your knowledge in general. And they're easily accessible. Really anyone can do it. I did it. So I want to emphasize that the possibilities are there and to just go for them.”

“I believe business and tech together have a transformative power to do good with high impact. That’s why I was so excited to get into the Paragon One Facebook Remote Externship program. It was a structured, intentional experience, and I got to enhance skills like market research, communicating to a strategic audience, and putting together insights in an easily digestible way.”

“I feel like a lot of people say diversity matters, but they don’t show it. This opportunity definitely showed it. I met people from all over the world with different backgrounds, who had similar interests to me. 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 and their connection to my university, it felt so much more accessible to me and not like a far off unattainable goal.”

McKenzie Templeton

“There was mentorship and structure, but the people overseeing us didn’t force their ideas on us. I really liked the frank discussions at the weekly meetings and how the Facebook staff we interacted with showed genuine interest in our futures.”

FAQs
Got questions?
We've got answers.
Is the externship with Paragon One or the Host Company?

Paragon One co-creates externship experiences with each hosting company – the outcomes, the training, the meeting agendas – it’s carefully crafted by both companies. The Paragon One team will manage your Weekly Meetings, Company Meetings, and additional support and feedback. You will meet with your host company, receive feedback from them, present your findings to them, and receive other opportunities to connect with them through out the program.

How long/how much time does the externship take?

All externships take 10-15 hours each week to be successful in the program. This encompasses the time spent learning and completing training, researching, and attending meetings. All externships are 6-8 weeks long. Be sure to check each program for its duration.

How are students able to network with representatives from Host Companies?

Like in professional roles, all your interactions with a company are networking. Networking is about building relationships and trust. Each Company Meeting is an opportunity to impress them and increase their perception of you as an extern. After you complete the program, we compile all the information about you and your work and share it with Host Companies so they can review students and reach out, respectively. Top students get additional opportunities to present their work and have follow-up discussions with company leads.

Can I use the externship for Class Credit?

Yes, you can. Remember that credit-bearing policies vary from institution to institution, so while we can support you to receive credit, you will want to check with your advisor or dean for approval first.
