Ioana Stan

Career Services Intern - Employer Engagement and Events Officer

About me

I am a creative and conceptual thinker whose strength lies in identifying opportunities and finding solutions to problems. A highly empathetic person who enjoys working with people and managing teams, I believe my personal education and experiences are well suited to immerse myself in a fast-paced and dynamic cultural organisation as events manager, events coordinator, employer liaison or gallery assistant.
