Hi all! I applied for the Sakharov Prize but have been accepted for the communications press unit. Does anyone know what sort of tasks would be involved? The press department is on holiday until 15th August but I need to make my decision before tomorrow.

Thanks! Surprised

Hi guys,

I am a bit confused about the criminal record criteria. Do everyone really have to send one? I have accepted an offer at the directorate for legislative acts. In my offer e-mail it does say that my offer is valid on condition that I provide a criminal record but then it says that they can withdraw the offer if the record does not meet the character references in the Internal Rules, article 5 paragraph 1 (e).

However, that Internal Rules paragraph says a criminal record is needed if your position is in school or day care.

^ last week, i replied to their e-mail (i accepted the stage) and in the same reply i sent them a copy of my criminal record.
As i did not receive any answer, yesterday i sent them an e-mail asking if they received my confirmation.
They replied saying that my file in complete and all i have to do is to be present in Bruxelles on 2nd October with a printed copy of my offer (that is the e-mail proposing you the traineeship). They also said that an official traineeship convention would be signed in Bruxelles.

In my opinion, it is quite strange the way they finally confirmed that my file is ok. I expected they send an official e-mail, not waiting for me to ask.

Hi guys,

did anyone get a traineeship in the Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services, Ex-Post Evaluation Unit in Brussels?

Also, did anyone already find a flat or a room? I've been struggling with finding something adequate - I would really appreciate any suggestion. Thank you!

Hi guys,
I am from non-EU country and had received a mail confirming my shortlist on 14th July. Even after having sent all the necessary documents by the due date, I am yet to hear back from the recruitment unit.
Any ideas, why?
Can I still be optimistic about my chances?

Nobody knows, because the process is not really transparent, since we did not even receive the confirmations that they have received the diplomas we were required to send. The whole selection procedure is also not very clear, so I think that nobody can give you a reasonable answer with regards to how optimistic you can be (except if they know someone who works at the department that deals with the traineeships). It might be that some Directorates are on summer vacation and will send their offers at the end of August. Or it might be that all the offers have been sent already so that the rest of the shortlisted candidates are on the reserve list in case some of the chosen candidates cancel or fail to produce their criminal records (in that case offers can be made all the way up to 15th September).

Thanks a lot, @ansich!

Is there anyone on this forum who is from the non-EU country and have received an offer letter already?

Hi, Max_7!
I am non-EU, but no offer so far.
Wonder who among non-EU candidates has already received it.
Good luck to you!

It seems there was just as much confusion during the Feb 2017 selection procedure and nothing has been done to clarify things this time around. From what I've gathered those of us who have not received an offer should not be very hopeful a this point. Just wondering if anyone received any offers this week?

I think we are all going to be wondering about what will happen the next week for all of the weeks left until 15 Sep.
