Hey people, this is my first post here !
I would like to congrats to everyone who has received an offer from the TO so far =) !!

I am writing because I am part of the ones who got a bit frustrated and sad by the whole process as I haven't been contacted by any of my DGs preferences and I am wondering what went wrong in my application form and motivation. Tried to lobby a bit but dit it a bit later (like in second week of December)

I am searching for advices in terms of motivation or lobbying for those who got calls from their DGs (especially DEVCO and EEAS) as application procedure for October 2019 is open until 4th February and I might give a second try with this !

Congrats again and thanks for sharing !

Salimzade, I'm a non-EU national too and I received my offer today, so I don't think non-EU nationals are receiving offers any later than EU folks.

Congrats! I'm super glad there's a couple of us; I heard not all sections of EEAS got interns this time. I'm in GLOBAL.6 - Multilateral relations. How about you? Smile


Congratulations to you too! Smile I'm in GLOBAL 3 - Democracy and Electoral Observation.

I'm now applying for a Police Clearance Certificate from my home country as I'm a non-EU national and need to apply for a visa. The PCC is going to take a minimum of ten days and only after that can I apply for my visa which will again take a minimum of weeks to get processed (and that's if all goes smoothly). So I'm quite stressed out and really hoping everything gets done on time!

Hey, well I have been selected by my second choice for which I didn't lobby at all!! They didn't even interview me! I only received an email in December from them telling me I had been shortlisted and that they liked my CV and if I was still interested in that particular DG. This Tuesday I got a final offer from the TO Smile Apparently, there is no rule...

Not (yet). Maybe after 29 when some people reject their offers?
Let us know if you receive any answer from TO.

Hi guys !

Just a quick question, for those who received an offer and accepted it, do you know what's going to happen next ? I mean on the website it is written "you have accepted the offer", good but in addition to the document offer and the task description we had do you know if we will be contacted in the future by the TO ? for banking account or HR matters?

Thanks !

Alexis

Hi Alexis! I think we need to fill in the stuff on the right side of the placement offer page where it says personal details, induction, visits and conferences etc. Under the Finance section, there is the Online Legal Entity Form which needs to be filled up and submitted by 29th Jan i.e. tomorrow. Most of the other sections don't have deadlines as far as I've read and some should be filled up once the traineeship begins.

Just received mine (EEAS). Such a shock given that I didn't even have an interview. Anyone else from EEAS?

Excited to meet you all in March Smile

How's everyone planning to go about finding housing?

Anyone looking for accomodation ; i have called a lot of residences cited on internet but im not in spot at the moment so i am a bit sceptical about making a payment or  signing a contract . Most of them are not the owners and just subletting some rooms but they ask for guarantee Anyone in the same situation ; anyone who has arranged their stay ;

March 2019 Traineeship - Page 13 Empty tips from the successful ones

on Wed Jan 30, 2019 10:02 am
hi guys,
I have been trying a couple of times to get a traineeship at the EC with no success. Could those of you who were successful with your applications share some words of wisdom with me, some tips regarding your application forms and in general what would you suggest me doing in order to maximize my chances of being selected?
I am interested in: NEAR, EEAS, ECHO, DEVCO. I am EU national (Polish)

- what kind of key words should I use in my application?
- which 3 work experiences would you recommend listing in the app.form (some balance between volunteer work and paid work, everything tightly related to work of a specific DG?)

I will try for the last time in Feb deadline, in case I fail again - screw it!
Thanks, M.

I'm setting up a WhatsApp group for those who have accepted their offer. Simply send me a message with your name and number and I'll add you!

Best

Hello everyone, it is first time I am posting here, congratulations those who were selected for traineeships. I was preselected but so far I have not received any answer from TO about the selection results. I sent an email to them today and they have replied with a genetic answer that I have to wait for their response. Is anyone of you in the same situation? Or do you know, why they suspended my response for so long? thanks a lot in advance

Didn't hear of anyone who has not received the answer yet. I was just wondering if there are such people. As some places must have been vacanted after the 29th January, maybe you are on the first in line for those
