This close-up into the world of investment banking really allowed me to get a better understanding of how deals are carried out, helped me with interpersonal skills, and gave me the motivation and endurance to be even more prepared for my internship with Citigroup this summer.

I wanted to broaden my options after graduation, so the SEO and Content creation externship was a great opportunity for me to get my feet wet and understand more about what goes into creating content and deciding who gets to see that content.

We’re in the golden age. The golden age of story-telling that is. And at the heart of it is video content. In 2021, US adults spent over two hours a day consuming video content. Video is the way we share our stories, it’s the way we communicate with the world. And that’s where you come in. By researching video consumption trends and patterns, you’ll build thoughts and frameworks around video content. You’ll deepen your understanding of how various content platforms are serving their audiences and advertisers through competitive analysis. This will help you to effectively reshape sales narratives to improve existing video products.

Manufacturing Strategy Remote Externship

This experiential learning program has been designed by Paragon One in partnership with Pfizer’s Small Dosage Manufacturing unit to offer talented students an opportunity to develop and showcase their strategic problem solving and critical thinking skills by working on real business challenges. The SDM group has an advanced manufacturing platform called PCMM (Portable Continuous Miniature Manufacturing). This equipment is used to produce tablets for clinical supplies. This is a relatively new technology created from a partnership with Pfizer and a vendor of the equipment. The problem is minimizing the downtime of the equipment so it can run more continuously. The current practices of preventative maintenance are employed, however, there are no features of predictive maintenance. Preventative Maintenance is the process of repairing or replacing parts and components of equipment prior to the breakdown of the system. Predictive Maintenance is the process of using indicators from the operation of the system to identify trends in differences that could indicate a part or component is getting close to failure. Currently, the unit loses precious time due to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. There is an increasing demand for more capacity from the PCMM operations, therefore need for additional “uptime”. The analyses presented by the students will be used to help assess the current state of maintenance of the PCMM and guide changes to increase the predictive maintenance elements discovered via the research.

Marine & Community Conservation Remote Externship

This externship opportunity has been designed by Paragon One in partnership with the National Geographic Society (NGS) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC), two global nonprofit organizations, to inspire a future generation of environmental leaders and changemakers. Whether you live near an ocean or far away, water is a vital resource that impacts everyone. Understanding this interconnectedness–the ocean’s influence on you and your influence on the ocean, locally and globally–is critical to creating a sustainable planet. Marine conservation issues like overfishing, offshore drilling, acidification, or the destruction of coral reefs may feel distant for many communities. In this virtual externship, students will translate global marine conservation issues into a local context, making them relevant and accessible to their communities, and offer solutions to a local or regional problem. Students will learn about marine conservation careers throughout the externship from weekly webinars featuring NGS and TNC experts, their own research, and informational interviews conducted with local conservation organizations.
