The Global Campus Alumni Careers Programme. 

The GCA Careers Programme aims to help our alumni advance their careers in human rights.
It contains two main tracks: a Mentoring Track, and a Job Applications Track. 

The Global Campus Alumni Mentoring Track:

The GCA Mentoring Track aims to connect recent graduates/less experienced alumni with more experienced human rights professionals for support, advice, and exchange of fresh ideas. It aims to help alumni expand their horizons and find suitable career paths. The Track also helps human rights experts develop their coaching skills, and supporting and inspiring fellow alumni to fulfill their potential.

However, the Mentoring Track is not, in any way, a replacement for professional psychological support when needed. 

The Mentoring Track is managed by the GCA team within the Global Campus of Human Rights. It is also supported by Niamh Walsh, an alumna who works as a university careers advisor.  

Since 2012, over 290 mentors and mentees have participated and benefited from this unique opportunity.*

“It was a great opportunity to understand the way to redirect my career to go back to where my passion and interests are. My mentor helped me with that. She tried to translate my ideas and will and put them into practice.” – Mentee  


Any professional with a relevant background and interest in human rights can become a Mentor, but only a Global Campus alumna/alumnus can become a Mentee.**

The GCA Mentoring Track is free of charge.

What to expect?

  • First, you need to register. 
  • We will do the selection, then share mentor profiles with mentees and mentee profiles with mentors.
  • Each mentee will review mentor profiles and select those most interesting to them. They will then contact selected mentors with a brief motivational email.
  • If the mentor accepts the mentee, he/she (the mentor), will inform the GCA’s coordinator, and the mentoring relationship will begin. It is possible to sign a mentoring agreement, but not necessary. 
  • The GCA team will organize workshops for both mentors and mentees, both to help them be better mentors/mentees, and to help the mentees make better career decisions. 
  • The GCA team will invite mentees to take part in specific GCA careers workshops within the overall GCA Careers Programme which focus on CV’s and cover letters, whenever relevant. 
  • Upon finalizing the Track, the mentors and mentees will fill a short feedback form, and receive a mentoring certificate.

Please note that: 

*The matching will be done depending on the number of available mentors and mentees for this call for registrations. It is possible for one mentor to be matched with more than one mentee due to the disproportion of the participants. 

**The Mentoring Track does not secure employment, so please do not expect offers for job positions and other professional engagement. It is a Programme aimed to connect GC alumni to help each other to advance their personal and professional life.

***The GCA is not providing a mentorship service, rather it facilitates the process of connecting, helping and sharing between the GC alumni.

The Global Campus Alumni Job Applications Track:

The GCA Job Applications Track is aimed at alumni who specifically want to work on their capacity to attain a specific job. It includes access to materials prepared for the alumni, with the help of an alumna who works as a university career advisor, and workshops on writing CVs and cover letters. This track is new, and we expect to adapt according to the feedback, and the levels of interest of the alumni. The first workshop is scheduled to be held on the 19th of March, 2024.

Participation is only available for the alumni of the Global Campus of Human Rights. 

Registration for the first cycle of the GCA Job Applications Track is now open. The number of workshops we will conduct depends on the levels of need, engagement, and progress.

What can you expect?

Upon registration, you will receive materials to assist you in preparing job applications. Additionally, you’ll receive an invitation to attend an interactive workshop scheduled for March 25th, 2024, at 6 PM CET. We will schedule additional workshops as needed.
