A student ambassador gives a campus tour to prospective students.

Student Ambassador

“I have worked as a student ambassador, which has built my confidence and improved my interpersonal skills. I have also grown my skills relating to sales and marketing because I can highlight the best features of Carthage and describe to each student why Carthage may be the right place for them. While every student who tours Carthage is different, Carthage has something to offer for all. Part of my position as a student ambassador is showing prospective students the many opportunities Carthage has to offer.”
— Nicole Bydra ’24, finance, marketing, and management major

Student Writer in the Office of Marketing and Communication

“I have an on-campus job working as a student writer for the Office of Marketing and Communications, which entails a lot of research into the Carthage community and its students. While I am not a marketing or communication major, I always love to learn more about the different facets of business as that may be my career path outside of college.”
 Lorin Bucur ’25, Chinese, finance, and international political economy major

— Abigail Davidson ’25, allied health science major

A biology lab worker in the lab.

Lab Assistant

“I’ve been a biology lab assistant for over a year, and I love my job. I enjoy helping people and working with science. Another awesome part about my job is everyone I’ve worked with.

 Julia Radtke ’24, chemistry and physics major

Gallery Assistant

I have learned so much about the art world and everything that goes on in the background to make an exhibition show run smoothly. Working hands-on with other artists has been a great opportunity to have a job like one I could have post-grad.”
— Amber Redmond ’24, art and psychology major

Carthage Athletics has many employment opportunities for students.

Graphic Design Intern in the Carthage Athletics Department

 “I am a graphic design intern for the Carthage Athletics Department! This is such a fun internship; it’s a great portfolio builder, I can network within the sports community, and it’s an awesome way to put NCAA on your resume! I was also recently promoted to student lead intern, which allows me to practice my organization and management skills.”
— Jana Ahlstrand ’24, graphic design major

The Equity and Inclusion Office at the Involvement Fair.

Student Worker in Engagement and Inclusion Center

“My on-campus job as a student worker in the Engagement and Inclusion Center is not necessarily related to my major, but it has taught me a lot. I get to work with the different affinity groups on campus, which has taught me a lot about working in an office. Being a ‘hub’ on campus that helps students with DEI work makes me happy. Also, being able to help plan events and put them on has been a joy. I love my job a lot and am so grateful to be working there!”
— Julia Peters ’24, environmental science major

Peer Tutor

Singers at Christmas festival.

Arts Events Manager in the Office of Performing and Visual Arts

“I began working as the arts events manager in the Office of Performing and Visual Arts. It is my job to coordinate and organize the logistics for all student recitals that happen on campus. Working in the office of performing and visual arts is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in arts management. Sometimes, arts management jobs will require a few years of experience for applicants. Working in this office, I will graduate with that experience, putting me ahead of my graduating peers, who must seek this experience before applying to the same jobs. Also, suppose you want to work as a performer. In that case, the front-of-house, management, and marketing experience make you a more marketable performer as someone who understands the work that happens off the stage to make a performance possible.”
— Emily Halfmann ’25, music and musical theatre major

A student studies in Hedberg Library.

Sustainability Intern

“Right now, I’m a sustainability intern on campus, and I love it. I get to identify where the school can improve on sustainability and make projects to work on it. I love how flexible it is and how I can really do something that I enjoy. My main project right now is sorting through old technology and seeing what works and what doesn’t. I sell what works on Facebook Marketplace, and the rest gets recycled in the proper way.”
— MaryHelen Prince ’24, environmental science major

A. F. Siebert Chapel

Interfaith Community Builder

“On campus, I have three amazing jobs that I love. One of the three jobs I have on campus is co-coordinating Interfaith Lunch through the Center for Faith and Spirituality. Interfaith Lunch brings people with all different backgrounds together to broaden our knowledge of faith and spirituality, or the lack thereof.”
— Mara Lysne ’25, marketing and management major
