Individual Counselling

INDIVIDUAL counselling


Do you need to discuss your personal career plan, perform a mock interview or do you feel like you could benefit from a professional coaching or mentoring session? Our career adviser Aline is here to help you! 

Career counselling sessions are designed complement our weekly professional development workshops, which we encourage students to attend before booking a counselling appointment.

Important notice: for job applications review, CV and cover letter workshop attendance is mandatory and will be followed by individual CV-check sessions with one of our advisers. 

Counselling sessions are only available to students enrolled in a Master, PhD or LL.M at the Institute once per semester. Newly admitted students can book a counselling session at the start of the academic semester at the earliest.

Important: Students from the Geneva Academy, MIDS, Executive Education and GCSH (ex-CERAH) programmes have to contact their department for counselling options. Alumni students have access to counselling sessions for 6 months upon their graduation date (except students graduated in 2019 and earlier whose access is valid for a period of 2 years).
