Do you know if for accepting I just need to reply to that email I received? Is that enough? I simply replied that I accepted and I atteched a copy of my criminal record.

Good luck to everybody, I really hope to see you all in Brussels.

Congratulations!

Can I ask when you submitted your documents?

Sure! I sent them on Monday morning

Okay, I sent mine yesterday afternoon so hopefully I get a response soon!
Can I ask if you are currently completing a masters and if so, did you upload any evidence of this or did you just submit your first diploma?

Sorry for all the questions!

So stressful! Rolling Eyes

Yes me too, hopefully it's okay!

And stressful indeed... Crying or Very sad

I read in the "Frequently asked questions" document (from one of the previous sessions) that if you havent't yet received your MA diploma you should just send your BA!

But shouldn't they send also an admission letter to be signed?

Yeah I did it yesterday. This year there's no admission letter, the acceptance by email is enough.

Good luck again guys!

Hi guys, I too got my offer letter a few hours back. Will be posted in Brussels! Those who have submitted the documents and haven't got the offer, please stay hopeful. Last year few people got them as late as end of July.
To those who will be working at Brussels, let's connect. Smile

Thanks for letting us know, and congrats! May I ask which department you received an offer from?

Are we supposed to get at least an email stating that the documents have arrived? I sent them to the email they gave us but haven't got any confirmation.

Hi, I got an offer from DG Finance. Can someone please tell me what exactly constitutes of "scanned copy of criminal records"? I have no offence against my name and in my country there is no direct provision of any such certificate if your name is clear.

You may have to ask the services in your country because it's different everywhere. But normally they give you a proof of no criminal record in your name. Hope that helps!

I don't think we're supposed to receive a confirmation, because they must be overwhelmed. At least I've never heard of anyone receiving one.

Hey y'all! I have also been shortlisted and sent all the documents last Thursday, fingers crossed for the selection! If I understood correctly both the first choices and the reserve list people got the same "shortlisted" email right?
Regarding the "scanned copy of criminal records" I had to produce it for another internship and it entails that you have to go to your local Public prosecutor's office and request a certificate that you have no criminal proceedings against you. Depending on the country and the city, it might sometimes take weeks or months - so the sooner you do it the better it is.

Hi Guys! Just for your information, I just received an offer from DG EXPO, about 5 days after I sent all my diploma. I know that when I made the interview in June, I was told that we were about 5 people to make the interview for the same traineeship. But I don't know how many were finally "shortlisted" for the unit.

Good luck to everyone and see you in October!

One question, as I understand all of the people who received an offer ,they have applied for position in Brussels. Is anyone that applied for offices in European capitals. Does anyone know what is the procedure for this kind of applications

For those of you who were shortlisted, was it for a position in the Secretariat of the European Parliament or elsewhere?

Thanks!

I've sent my docs on the 13th, so it's 2 weeks now...I'm pretty much loosing hope here. I put down Fundamental rights and citizenship / Constitutional affairs
& Culture / Education with Brussels and Paris. I just hope they are just slow and I'm not on waiting list. Sad

Yeah I sent my documents off on 13th also, but looking back at past forums from previous years, some people weren't offered a place until the beginning of August. There's still hope!
