Individual Meetings

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 to complement our weekly professional development workshops, which we encourage students to attend before booking a counselling appointment. You can book one counselling session per semester.

Counselling sessions are only available to students enrolled in a Master, PhD or LL.M in International Law at the Institute once per semester. Newly admitted students can book a counselling session at the start of the academic semester at the earliest. Please keep in mind that if you want to discuss topics on how to enter the job market such as CV and cover letters, LinkedIn profile, Interviews and networking, it is mandatory to attend a workshop on those topics prior to booking a counselling session. This is to avoid going over the same topics already discussed in workshops and for you to make the most of your counselling sessions with Aline.

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.



Aline has 11 years of experience in counselling and placing international students in the public and third sectors of La Genève Internationale (including IOs, NGOs, UN agencies, diplomatic missions, etc.). As a certified professional coach, she also has a solid experience in career transition and professional development. She studied abroad for three years (Barcelona and Austin,Texas) and speaks French, English, Spanish and Portuguese fluently. She holds a master’s degree in International Business Negotiations from the Université d'Avignon et Pays du Vaucluse, and she is certified in Personal and Professional Coaching from la Haute Ecole de Coaching of Paris.
