After working for French diplomacy in Geneva, following the sessions of the Human Rights Council, I had the chance to work for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Cameroon and Fiji. I am now working on child protection for UNICEF in Haiti. I am rich of all these experiences and looking forward to new ones and I know I owe part of these experiences to the fact I studied at the E.MA. (Gallianne Palayret, E.MA Graduate 2002/2003, Child protection officer for UNICEF in Haiti)
The majority of E.MA graduates work with human rights organisations (governmental and non-governmental, international and national) both at their headquarters and in field missions (electoral observation, human rights monitoring, international cooperation projects). A number of graduates are also involved in human rights-related activities with their home Ministries of Foreign Affairs or are seconded by them to work for international institutions. Some graduates pursue further academic studies and research and a few are now the representatives of some E.MA participating universities.

E.MAlumni are also regularly invited to teach on the E.MA Programme or act as resource persons for its numerous activities, such as the E.MA Career Day, jointly organised with the E.MAlumni Association, which provides students with tips, advice and information on career development and job market, including also a CV and cover letter clinic.
In previous years EIUC itself has been facilitating the entry of its graduates in the human rights job market through two successful internship programmes:
- the E.MA Internship Programme
- the EIUC EU-UN Fellowship Programme.
