  • Extern
    Extern (w2017)Active • 35 employees • New York, NY, USA
    Extern (formerly Paragon One) invented the remote Externship, a completely new form of real work experience with integrated learning. Our mission is to help anyone discover and launch their career through real professional experiences available anywhere, anytime. Since 2019, we’ve created and powered Externships on behalf of companies -- from Fortune 500s to startups -- that have enabled tens of thousands of students to build real work experience on their resumes and open doors to incredible job opportunities. Extern leverages software and industry experts to make Externships possible and incredibly streamlined for both students and companies. Work experience is the credential that matters most, but getting it when you don’t have experience can be hard. We envision a world where anyone can access work experience as a form of education – no matter their background, experience, or socio-economic status. By making work experience more accessible, Extern is driving the rapid mobility and upskilling needed for a new economy. Come join our movement to reshape work, education, and credentialing for future generations with the Externship. Extern was born out of a pivot from Paragon One (W17) which initially focused on providing students with a career center-as-a-service platform, connecting them with industry professionals to receive career coaching and guidance.
