They just called me to say that I didn't sent a copy of my passport with my documents. Such a stupid mistake! And I checked everything so many times before I sent it... Shocked
But at least we know that they are already looking at the documents!

At least that is a mistake that they seem to forgive! Glad for you! :-)

Hello guys and girls.

Do you know when can we expect final decision regarding the traineeship? I am asking this due to fact that December is such a long term.

Does anyone have certain information?

I believe this part where we are waiting is the worst Smile

Last year they received an e-mail around the 12th of December.

Was that an email stating that you passed the check of documents? Or was it an email with final decision with a traineeship offer?

This was the e-mail of admittance to the blue book.

Hello guys!

I just found this forum and it's awesome! I read most of the entries and now I'm nervous haha! Maybe I should keep applying for job positions.

I want to know if I make it to the Blue Book! Grrr

Greeting from a Non-EU

Hi from another Non-EU! Smile
Indeed, this whole waiting process is taking too long. It's like Schrödinger's cat, I still don't know if I have to start having a life and searching for jobs in my home country or wait for the results of the Blue Book. Because if I find a job now I'll only have to work for only 2 months and then leave. And on the other hand, I don't want to depend that much on the results and waste so much time just to know that I'm not selected for Blue Book.

Same! This is the first time that I applied for the EC Traineeship and I have read lots of applicants have applied like 3 or 4 times. Anyway, I'm already in Belgium looking for a job haha!

Hello everyone!!!

Do you have any insightful information about when we have an answer from the traineeship office if we have passed the eligibility phase? Or will they send us the final decision already? I was pre-selected and have sent all the documents but now I am getting nervous for an answer!

It is my second time applying for the EC Traineeship, but to be honest don't know all the procedures and timelines!

Good luck for everyone.

Hi all,

Yes, the results of the eligibility test arrived on the 12th of December last year, but the pre-selection email was also sent on the 7th of November (on the 13th this year). So I guess this time they will arrive around the 18th or 19th?

I have one more question.
There are normally 2000 people who make it to the Blue Book.
And around 650 are selected.
Approximately 600 of them are EU and 50 are Non-EU.
I would like to know if there is a different competition for EU and Non-EU.
I mean, for example, approximately 1500 in the Blue Book are EU which are competing for those 600 spots.
And the remaining 500 in the Blue Book are Non-EU competing for those 50 spots.
Or for example, it's 1900 EU competing for 600 spots and only around 100 non-EU competing for the remaining 50 spots.
I just wanted to know what are the chances for the Non-EU candidates. If there is a Non-EU who has been selected in the previous years, your help would be greatly appreciated.

I got this message:

"The application forms are not yet open and will open in the following period: 04/01/2018 (12:00, Brussels time) - 31/01/2018 (12:00, Brussels time)"

Did anyone get the same message?

I guess it's a standard, system-generated message for the Traineeship starting in October.

Nothing wrong, nothing good with. Just a simple message.

I'd be shared between the C1 unit and the Digital Single Market Task Force.

Hello, does anyone know if the selection procedure is the same for DG Translation? I've been informed that I'm in the Blue Book, but I'm not sure if lobbying is expected for translation traineeships, too.
Thank you.

Got a call and an email from one of the DG's confirming interest in my candidacy and today I got pre-selected. However, I also received two missed calls from unknown ID and I am pretty sure they were from the EC Crying or Very sad

Thank you.

that would be mine question too... i applied for the translator traineeship twice and am already included in the blue book. i have no idea how to search for the units and what is my first choice - do you all mean the administrative traineeship or did i just miss something? confused

I received an e-mail today and they told me they are interested but will be doing the pre-selection in January. This waiting is killing me...

Selecting our preferred units does not apply to translation internships, since we are only applying for DG Translation. However I don't know if we, too, are supposed to lobby...

Hello,
I was also pre-selected and got an email from one of the DG's confirming interest in my candidacy. However, they will call me tomorrow for a short interview...

Fingers crossed!
