Post a Job or Internship

We are happy to share open jobs and internships with SIS students and alumni via our career development emails and Twitter feed. If you wish to reach an even broader audience, please consider posting your opportunity on AU CareerWeb, the career management platform we use to organize all recruiting-related requests. AU CareerWeb is a great tool to post jobs and internships, schedule on-campus recruiting interview dates, and RSVP for career fairs and networking events, among other things.

SIS Site Visit Program

Every August, we organize the School of International Service's Site Visit Program, a day-long career exploration and networking event in which 35 employers will host on-site information sessions for 300+ incoming graduate students. Over the course of the day, students will travel in pre-set groups (25 people max.) to the offices of three different employers working in a specific field or sector. Each employer visit lasts 1.5 hours and can include a short tour of the office, an overview of the organization's mission and services, and a panel discussion with employees about their experiences, accomplishments, and reflections since graduation. On vacation in August? We plan site visits throughout the academic year, as well.
