Meet Anna Han (she/her). Anna will graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education in December 2022.
We asked Anna some questions, advice for current students, and how UNT helped them to succeed and SOAR BEYOND!
When you started at UNT, what were your plans after graduation? How have these plans changed (if at all)? I was planning to work in the art field. I was an Events and Marketing intern at the Art House Dallas and a Gallery Assistant at Ro2 Art Gallery. Since there are so many options for art-related jobs, I am still figuring out what I want to do but becoming an art teacher, and a curator at an art museum or a gallery is something that I am currently thinking about doing in the future.
What advice do you have for prospective or current students as they decide what they want their next steps to be (part-time jobs/interviews/internships/careers/etc.)? My advice would be to get yourself out there and get as many experiences as you can. Going through the interviews and getting to experience and learn through internships before getting a career would be a really good idea.
How did your program(s) at UNT help you to feel prepared for your role/program/next steps? Advice and help from the Career Center were really helpful when I was preparing for different interviews and applying for internships. It helped me gain more confidence by giving me an idea of what to expect when asked questions during the interview. I also learned about different ways to find opportunities for internships and jobs that I wanted.
If applicable, how did you find your current role/program (website, email, word of mouth, etc.)? I found my roles for the internships by going through Handshake and searching through the websites. Career Center also helped me look for different opportunities on different websites.
What was the most challenging interview question you have been asked? The most challenging interview question I have been asked was during a group interview at the Dallas Museum of Art and was asked about how I would handle certain types of situations when parents and children are involved.
How, if applicable, did the Career Center help you? It helped me a lot by answering all the specific questions I had about getting jobs or internships. I was really happy to find the staff at the Career Center who were willing to help and encourage me to pursue my dreams and goals.
Share anything else about your story/experience if you would like to that you haven’t already. I was able to get two internships during this summer, thanks to much help from the Career Center. I just want to say that I am really grateful for all the work that Career Center does to help out us students.
