Do you guys know if it is somehow possible to contact the office responsible for traineeships? By phone for example?
The situation is frustrating and we really deserved to know what's happening Very Happy

I just called them. They are still in process of checking documents. We should expect the first offers in the coming days, by the end of the week. Smile

I contacted the central office in Luxemburg and asked them to transfer the call to the Traineeship office. The procedure will be the same as last session, offers sent out progressively. If the first selected one does not accept, the next one on the list will be contacted.

Do you know if all the applications are dealt with together or if the ones for the Information Offices in Member States are dealt with separately?

I do believe that you asked about your application. Did they tell you something concerning your application or only information in general that you wrote here?
I have doubt to call them or not if they tell the same information or not
Anyway, thanks so much. At least, we received some information.

I am not sure about the Member State traineeships. I have asked only for general information regarding the progress and when to expect an offer. I dont believe they would share personal ranking, as they are checking thousands of documents. Imagine everybody calling up for the same.

Thank you Sng! I agree with others, it is so hard to plan this spring since I am scared that I will miss this great opportunity if I commit to something else... I don't know if it will be appreciated to call to the units, maybe they will just be annoyed? I can't imagen they changing the list because of a call, but it's hard to tell.

I think I will try to be patient and wait until the end of this week, and then if other people start getting the offers and I do not, I will just move on Laughing and commit to my other option.
Guys, if anyone gets an offer, please share the good news here asap!

Just got an offer from EP. Not sure what to do now since I have a job offer here in Lithuania. Have two days to decide. Hate these types of situations.

Congratulations to all the offer holders! I'm wondering the same thing. Do they send the offers in one batch, meaning that those of us who haven't already got one, are in reserve?

Congrats to everyone who have already an offer!! Not my case Sad hahha. But still with my fingers crossed. BTW, Does any of the officially selected apply for the HR department? It's just to be realistic and assume that i'm not selected. In the offer that you received, is it specified if you are going to Brussels or Luxembourg?

Congrats to everyone who received the offer!

I also got an offer from the Communication unit. I am really struggling to decide because I am still hoping to get the offer from the European Commission, which will arrive at the end of the month. Any recommendations? If I confirm the EP one right now, would it be really bad to cancel it in few weeks? I understand that the reserve list is also depending on us, who might cancel so I feel a bit selfish considering it. :/

Any advice?

Hi everyone! I also received an offer earlier today (DG for Communication, Public Opinion Monitoring Unit) Smile So-so happy! I applied for Statistics, and Unemployment and Social Policy.
Good luck to everyone who are still waiting! I'm sure they did not manage to send out all the offers today.
And congrats to everyone who received an offer! See you in Brussels Smile
