Career Development Office

Whether you’re just starting to explore your career path, developing your professional network and application materials, or ready to seek your next opportunity, the Career Development Office at The American University of Paris provides resources and services to support and guide you.


Employer network and database

Our office helps you explore your career options based on your interests, strengths, and personal values. Need assistance in writing your resumé and cover letter in English or French? We can help with that, too.

We also cultivate the network of employers who work with AUP on a regular basis and who recruit students and graduates for internships or permanent employment. Our job and internship database is also frequently updated with interesting employment opportunities for AUP students around the world.

We also help you get noticed by sending out a Global Talent Brochure to top Paris-based employers. The brochure features outstanding students like you.


Coaching and Career Mentoring

We can suggest “best fit” organizations and advise on how best to approach these employers. If you’re not ready to join the workforce just yet, we can also assist you with selecting, planning for, and applying to graduate schools.

Most importantly, the career development office provides personalized assistance from the very first day you arrive at AUP through to graduation and beyond. Our innovative career mentoring program connects current students and recent graduates with the many successful AUP alumni around the world.


Career Resources for Alums

AUP’s career resources and services remain accessible to you as an alum. Many alums also check back in as they navigate their professional lives, either to receive assistance or to share employment opportunities with current AUP students. You’re also welcome to participate in our workshops and events on topics that might be of interest to you. We like to stay connected with you!
