Me as well. Do you have any ideas how it works in EP? If I am not mistaken there will no preselection like in EC traineeship, so no "lobbying" is required. I don't know if it is good or not. We don't have any impact at all on recruitment process and this is a bit discouraging, but at the same time less stressful Smile

Hello everybody!I got a call a couple of days ago from the EP for a traineeship. They asked me if I was interested in the department and whether I was still available from October. From what I understood, this was a kind of preselection phase and they will now send CVs to the personnel department for the official selection. Has anyone else received a call? If so, was it made clear to you that you have in fact been selected or that you still need to go through a final phase? I feel stupid for not asking more when I got the call but I was caught off guard and couldn't think of what to ask them... :-p

When did you get that call?
Actually someone have called me on 06.06.13 around 10 o'clock, but I missed it. It was from an unknown number. I feel sad now. :/

Hello guys! I have also submitted an application to the october '13 phase at EP. I've seen they have been contacting some of you already. So far, I haven't received any contact from them. Do you think that they will be calling all the 'pre-selected' candidates before sending the final confirmation? this is my first time applying so I feel a little bit lost. From what I've read in other forums, only the EC has the "lobbying" part. We are just supposed to wait and see... *thanks

nas I got the call on the 7th from an unknown number as well. I had also missed their first call but they called again 20 minutes later and luckily I heard it that time! Feliciat to be honest I have no idea how exactly the EP traineeship selection works...I'm afraid I have no information on that!I'm quite worried myself that I'm getting happy for no reason and it won;t work out in the end..

Hello Smile

I just have received the call from Information Office. Few questions about proffessional experience, availability, experience in social media, writing skills and foreign languages.

The lady told me that she was asked to contact the candidates, but it does not mean that we are accepted or pre-selected.

Good luck Smile

Hello! 

Do you think that not receiving that call means you are not accepted? I do not really understand the process. They send our application forms to the departments we applied for and they choose the candidate? Or is it the Bureau de Stages who does the pre-selection? 

Also, do you know when will we have an answer?

Thank you and good luck! Smile

Hello Paola,

I read somewhere in this forum, on behalf of past editions of the EP traineeships, that some people got the traineeship offer without previous contact from them or interview. Of course it is always a good sign to have that sort of contact but for me - who haven't been contacted yet - it still gives me some hope. Razz

Hey everyone! yes, agree with Paola. I think we should expect the answer in the end of next week. I applied for this internship the first time and think that i don't have any chance to be selected since i am from Russia (non-EU national). Still I did my Master in Germany and maybe it matters.. We will see.

Hei, Paola and everyone else!

I haven't received any email yet. And I'm quite anxious.
Rgarding the lobby, I didn't do it and i don't quite see how we can do it. I read all about lobbing on this forum and it seems to me that it can be done only for the european commission because there they have two stages of selection.

And I think that we will receive the email this week because I saw that in the past years, according to the posts of previous applicants, they sent the email between 15 and 20 something of the month.

I have a question: do you know what professional experience had the applicants who were selected untill now? II know that it depends on the department where you wanna be asigned, but if someone can explain to me in general.. It would be great. Very Happy

Hi Paola,

Nothing so far... I am starting to lose some hope, because I have not been contacted before for an interview either and all this waiting.... :S

But is the interview compulsory for getting selected? I read the procedure guide and there says nothing about an interview.

Hi guys, I have had the opportunity to talk to an ex-Schuman trainee in the EP and he told me nothing about an interview. I suppose they call in case they have doubts about the candidates (if their CVs are very similar, for instance). He explained me that he had the degree + master + ~1 year of professional experience when he was selected, and that the person who recommends you is also important.

The interview is not a formal selection procedure but there are many people in the forum from previous editions that had an interview prior to getting the acceptance e-mail. it may be just pessimism winning over me...

Yes madalina you're right! Smile
