Thanks Raasvi for your answer.
B_va_94 I also applied for the journalism option.
Etetet, unfortunately I can't illuminate you on your queries, as the procedure is not exactly transparent... I suggest not to care about it too much. Que sera sera...

Stay stronk everybody.

I inquired information about my status on the 3rd of January through their website, so I think this email I received today was an answer to that.
I can assume that I am on the reserve list now

How did you get information from the website?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think none of us got an offer today? Which means that maybe this hasn't happened yet:

Hi all!
A current trainee there just called the office on my behalf and spoke to an Italian employee who said they have not finished and will continue sending out more offers tomorrow. So if you're still waiting to hear back (like me), try to hang in there one more day!
which means we can hope until Monday? Or maybe I'm just deluded Laughing

Did you receive an offer from EP or from a company in your country? Just to understand if they sent offers between yesterday and today, or not. It looks like anyone got an offer neither yesterday nor today, just last Wednesday, isn't it?

Any new candidate from HR/or applicant for the Directorate of Personnel?

Congrats again to those who received an offer!

Since everyone who got an offer have 3 working days to decline or say yes, I suppose someone got this offer and declined, and that I was next in line.

I got it from EP, "stages"

Hi, everybody!

I applied for the journalism option and I received an offer on Wednesday for the Directorate-General for Communication in the Press Unit. Today a friend of mine told me she had received an offer through the journalism option as well but to work in Madrid. Don't know if this information can help anyone...

Can anybody from those who have been selected tell how many days you were given to either accept or decline an offer ?

Not exactly from the website, but there is a link where you could ask questions, so I just sent my questions through that link

Hello guys and best of luck to all!

I got shortlisted for a traineeship starting on February 1st 2018 (I also had a phone interview on November). I am really anxious as I haven't received any offer yet and my traineeship is supposed to start in 15 days.

Do you believe that I still have chances? I applied for the HR Department.

Thank you in advance.

Hello everyone! Wink

I have some doubts cause all of you wrote you got offers in Brussels.
Does anyone have an offer in Luxembourg? Maybe there is small chance that they sent only offers from Brussels?

Is the process of checking and verifying the documents of shortlisted candidates already over?
Can anybody find it out?

Hi guys,

quick question for those who took part in an Erasmus programme. Did you mention it as part of your academic background listing the university with your home university or you reported the experience under the training and learning section? Thank you!

Think I'm just going to give up hope of being selected at this stage and accept my offer for a traineeship at the Council of Europe instead.

Does anyone know if participating in a traineeship with the CoE will affect my eligibility for reapplying for an EU traineeship in October? I know if you've done a previous EU affiliated traineeship you are disqualified but not sure if it's the same for CoE?

CoE is not a EU institution/agency. It is an international organization itself different from the EU, therefore it won't affect your eligibility for a future traineeship at a EU institution/agency.

@dlm no worries about that, I was a trainee at the CoE last September and that did not not prevent me from applying to EU institutions at all! They are aware of the fact that some people confuse it with the European Council, but when asked (in applications) if you have done a traineeship at an EU institution, it's a no; you can absolutely apply. And good luck Smile

In other news, does anyone have some insight on whether all DGs have already picked their candidates so we consider ourselves as the ones on the "waiting list", or we still have no idea??

i pulled the old trick of someone from these msg boards of the past, and assume there s plenty of positions to be filled still, based on the fb group. obviously not everyone has fb, and not everyone will run to join the ep group, but there s about 35 ppl on the one for march, which makes me assume there remains some hope!

not counting on it, but not entirely pessimistic either.

i have to say, the ep process has been a lot less tormenting that the commission's, in my opinion.

Hey guys. I got an offer for the Directorate-General for Security. Personnel and Planning Unit. Luxembourg. I applied for the human resources option, since that is my background on. However, they selected me for this directorate.

1. Does anyone know anything about this unit? Have found something on internet but not sufficient information.

And also,
2. Does anyone know if it is mandatory to start on March 1st?? Is it the actual starting date? I have an academic activity until March 3rd and I could be in Luxembourg on the 5th. I don't want to reject it, but does anyone know if this would be a problem?

Good luck to everyone and thank you!

This person got an offer from Luxembourg!

Idk if all offers are sent...we are 4 HR applicants in the forum without an offer... but who knows Rolling Eyes

Guys, I emailed the EP trainees office and got an answer:

The process of verifying the documents is still ongoing. We will be sending the offers still this week and until 15/02/2018.
If you by any chance take part in any forum group, please be so kind and inform the candidates that unfortunately we are not able to reply to every single question.
Please also be sure that all the candidates that sent their documents and will have a chance to receive the offer will be properly informed.

So there is still hope guys!

Hi everyone,

I applied for the journalism option and received an offer on Friday for the Press Unit. I have accepted it but haven't got any answer or confirmation yet. I have emailed them again to ask if I would get one because I have another offer from somewhere else which I want to decline, but first I want to be sure everything is fine.
I need to inform the others by tomorrow, so was planning to call to get the info, however, I could not find any number.
Has anyone a good number or received a confirmation? I am sure everything should be fine, but it does make me a bit nervous Smile
Thanks and hope to see some of you soon in Brussels!

Hello,
