JDP Program 2017/2018

on Sat Jan 28, 2017 7:06 pm
Hi everyone, anyone applied for this years program already?

I am just finishing up my application. I am curious if I should try to get a reference where I interned. I was 6 years ago so a very long time, but in the national parliament.

Hi Folks;) If I got it rights :"Present your main reasons for applying to the JPD traineeship programme in general as well as your motivations and assets for each of your geographical preferences in 300 words maximum": means that for each of the regions i have to write 300 words?

Hello everyone,

I already sent the application for the JPD Programme 2017. I think it will be interesting to communicate and share the information we have, the application and selection process, interviews...Very Happy

Hope to have an active discussion!!
We should make this waiting period more easier and less stressful!!

Hello Kev86!
I'm from the south of EU, and you?
Did you already sent the application before? Or is it the first time?

Hi people!

I am a first-timer, too! Did you guys apply for the EEAS or the EC?

Hello!

First time too and I applied for the EC!!
Do you already know if the preselection of your countries is hard? Cause if I am not wrong they have to select between 2-4 people isn't it?

I applied to the EEAS.

Yeah I imagine it will be quit hard, although I have no idea how many people apply and there are zero specifics about the further selection process, which is odd.

Are "Selection panels at EEAS" interviews with us or internal panels?


Do you guys have any idea about the rough numbers of applicants?

Alright, I applied for the EC as well.

From what I heard, at least for Belgium, they had approximately ~100 applicants last year. Once again, I am not too sure if that means ~100 for both the EC and the EEAS.

On a slightly different note, did you guys receive any confirmation of receipt of the application?

I do not know how many people applied for last year's call in Spain, but an acquaintance has told me that normally a lot!

Yes I received the receipt of the application of Spain, and the told me that they will contact me if they are interested in my profile! So time to wait...

I'd say that's a little early. MFA told me that the shortlisted candidates will be forwarded to the EC/EEAS by April, 28th. Not sure if we should expect to hear from them before that.

MFA will call us for interviews?
What they have told me is that before the end of April they will contact the preselected people... but apparently they will only take in consideration the application form.

Hi! I applied to the French one too and did not even know we are supposed to interview next week! Where did it say this? I have not heard anything either....If we were to be interviewed would it be in French? this is so nerve-wracking

Il est indiqué sur le site du Ministère: "Les entretiens de présélection auront lieu entre le 1er et le 10 mars 2017." Mais je pense que c'est très probable que la procédure soit retardée (il faut bien essayer de se rassurer Wink ).

I think the processes are different for every country though? I'm from a much smaller EU member state and they won't be conducting any interviews or anything like that and they'll make a selection they submit to the EEAS/EC only based on the applications...

I've never applied before, but I assume we will be notified by our foreign ministries whether we were pre-selected?

Good luck to everyone Smile

From what I heard, the procedure differs according to the countries, bittie!
Also it was written on the website of the French MFA that they would only notify preselected candidates, which means that no notification = not preselected...

Nope, nothing here. I guess I lost hope at the end of last week... Those that got the interview are probably not on any forum trying to look for more information Crying or Very sad

Today I talked to the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (that's where I'm from). They told me that they still haven't preselected any candidates and that the preselection process won't be finished until late March. I had already lost hope as well, but this brought it back to life. Smile I hope this helps...
