Hello everyone!

I was shortlisted for the Traineeship on July 14 but was not notified until now.

My two preferred locations were Strasbourg and Madrid.

Has anyone received an offer for these places?

Best

Hey guys, just to be sure: do you know if my Bluebook candidacy would be automatically withdrawn if I applied for the next (March 2018) session? I will be pretty busy next week so I can't wait to revise and resubmit my previous app form. I am not sure either if we'll get a definitive response regarding this session before 31 August.

Btw @bilgeyis, I also believe that there really is an abnormal delay in all pre-announced dates this year. Hopefully it won't be like for the next sessions..

---------------

Edit: Just got a response from TO. They say the selection process still continues but also that meanwhile, we are welcome to apply for the next year. In case we're selected in following days, our app for next session will be automatically dropped.

@bilgeyis Thank you! I just read through the information packet, and it says that non-EU people need to apply for a D visa (multiple entry), and that it could take 3 months (!!). Fortunately I will be able to use my current visa, but I'm concerned about everyone else with so little time left....

@bilgeyis That's exactly what I'm doing. I have a student visa in Germany. I contacted them and confirmed that as long as it's 6 months or shorter, I can work in another EU country and use my visa.

@bilgeyis yes I had an unofficial offer and the DG sounded very positive that nothing would go wrong. But without the official one, I can't make any arrangements at all....when did they contact you? Mine was 3rd of August ...

The person that contacted me said their first choice dropped out, so basically I'm their back-up. I guess that makes the procedure delayed....as you were also contacted in August, maybe it's the same case for you.

@bilgeyis any news for you? I received my offer on Thursday. But now I'm a bit more concerned about the Luxembourg visa cuz the embassy needs a confirmation from Luxembourg to give me a visa and I don't know how long it will take them again for sending it.....

@juli.xiang I am also starting to get worried as I collect documents. the criminal record in my case needs to be taken from 2 countries and it will take some big time. I am wondering if TO makes exceptions for late comera because of visa...have you heard anything like that?

No I don't know anything regarding late arrival as per now. But I'll contact my unit and ask... I thought they must have had plenty of experiences with non-EU trainees, but I phoned the HR and she told me that they've had very very few non-EU people only....but it was for Luxembourg, I think Brussels' HR would be more experienced ....
