These positions offer Marquette University students a chance to work with Carl Collective, a first-of-its-kind, student-powered PR, marketing, advertising and communications agency, earning real-world experience with prominent clients, for pay and potentially class credit. Freelancers will work with other students and professionals from Carl Collective and Trozzolo Communications Group (TCG) – our parent company – to support clients, while also supporting efforts to launch, grow and sustain the agency.

Ideal candidates will have a thirst for knowledge, an all-in attitude, unparalleled energy and a love of working in teams. They will thrive in an ever-changing, fast-paced environment, and have an ability to adeptly handle multiple tasks at once and adapt to changing conditions and needs.

  • Photography, taking high-quality, professional photos in a studio or on location, according to client specifications. Duties include working with the Carl/TCG team and clients to plan photo shoots; setting up backdrops, lighting and equipment to prepare for shoots; directing models and subjects to capture images; editing photos; and selection and delivery of the best images to the client.

Pay: $15 per hour.

Term: The position begins ASAP.

Anticipated weekly hours: Varies, based on client needs.

Earning of credit hours may be available, in addition to pay.
