Paragon One, an online college career service backed by YCombinator and the former CTO of Tencent, is seeking a Director of Community & Business Development who will develop our mentor community and build intern-matching partnerships with companies across various industries. They should be a hustler and rockstar networker + relationship-builder. They should also care deeply about education and be able to engage with our students if needed.

About Paragon One:

Paragon One is an online college career service center. Our video coaching platform connects students with mentors from successful companies who help them figure out which career to pursue, which courses to take in college, and how to prepare for the job interview process. We are starting with a group of talented international students and plan to expand to students everywhere. So far, 100% of our students have received internship/job offers in fields like finance, consulting, marketing, engineering, and design.

Parents can spend as much as $200,000 on college for their kids. But when it comes to a career, the best that colleges can do is offer a career center with counselors who merely spell check student resumes and hand them a book of jobs. We believe that, in the future, professionals will be mobilized to provide career education in their field to students. Colleges will not be the ideal place for this type of learning anytime soon.
