During the year, our students benefit from career advice and counselling from our Coordinator of Professionalizing Activities. This includes one-to-one counselling, group sessions that provide general advice on seeking employment and planning a career, exchange sessions with alumni about career paths in international organizations, NGOs, government or academia, access to job offers, as well as soft skills training.
Our students have also access to the Graduate Institute’s career services – notably the career workshops and individual CV check and interview preparation meetings.

Most of our students go on, or return, to work with international organizations, international courts and tribunals, NGOs, governments or academic institutions. Our 700 plus graduates have a visible presence in Geneva-based human rights and humanitarian institutions, but also in the wider field and other cities worldwide.
