My name is Karlie Colleen! You can read more about who I am, what I love, and how I started in photography on my "About Karlie" page.
I am so thrilled you are interested in interning with KCP. Summer 17 will be my first semester accepting interns. When I was in college I did a TON of internships and honestly sometimes I believe I learned more from them than my actual college classes. I have been doing my photography on the side for years but in the Fall of 2016 I went full time with my business! Whether you want to start your own business some day or not it is so important to understand and know all the functions that go into a successful business. If you become an intern with KCP you will see all the ins and outs of being a business owner and how to wear 10 hats at all times. I do not have a degree in accounting, business, marketing, photography, and everything else I need to run my company but I do all these positions every single day. I have taught myself a ton, asked others lots of questions, and most importantly stayed humble. I do not know everything, I am learning every single day. That is why with my internship I want you to know most importantly that it is a safe and understanding work environment, there are no stupid questions, you will learn something new every single day, and I will teach you anything I know if you ask me! Please read below more about the positions and if you have any questions please feel free to email me!
Marketing/Social Media Intern-
This position is for those who have an interest in marketing,
social media strategies, and growing a company's exposure.
In this internship you will learn how to write proposals, reach out to leads, grow and maintain relationships with partners or clients, and how to run all social media platforms for a company. Prefer you have a background in marketing or working towards a marketing degree in college, but it is not required. In this position I will also be teaching you how to work Adobe products like InDesign and Photoshop.
Sales/Business Operations Intern-
This position is for those who are interested in the running of
a small company, those looking to start their own business one
day, and love to help grow small start-ups. This position will be a mixture of sales and business ops, as with a small business you wear multiple hats. You will learn the ins and outs of how to do everything from emails, price packets, collaborations with other brands/companies, and even the backend of a company like invoicing, taxes, and staying organized and in good standing with the State.
