@sandras_2

Can I ask where you are getting this information?

I called up the office myself and they said that some offices make phone calls in November but most do not.

Where do you get the 1:5 ratio? Do you have any sources?

I spoke to some former trainees, March 2017 session. It makes sense, if there are five people per unit that were shortlisted and one will be selected (then its 1 out of 5 ratio). So the four will be considered as reserve.

Regarding the phone calls. This was not confirmed by the former trainees, but somehow it has more logic. I hope, I am wrong though..

the above sounds like garbage. you dont know anything, so why stress us out over your assumptions, dude... the exact opposite than the intention of this forum.

peace!

and it seems like nobody has an offer yet, so chill!

Thank you! I missed the e-mail though, and found it by random the day before the deadline... Managed to fix the documents though and sended it on the 3rd, but I am scared that my late email will influence my chances of getting a spot...

I don‘t think you need to worry about that. They were on holidays until yesterday Smile

I checked here in this forum that last year they sent the offers straight after receiving the documents for some people. Did it happen to someone this year as well?
I was shortlisted and still did not get anything

Hi guys Smile

Also a shortlist, best of luck to all of you! If anyone is interested in starting a facebook group later for flat sharing, that would be great!

Is it only me, or they are simply playing with our patience... the process has been dragging for ages. It all looks to be very unclear and uncertain, making everyone frustrated. Sad

Hi guys!! I am new in this forum. I also received a call in late November and later the email saying that I was shortlisted. But this is exasperating. I am also checking my email every hour.. Fingers crossed!!! Best luck to everybody.

Were you also contacted by phone/email by the units during the October selection round?

Guys, before I forget, this is a very good guide for EU trainees in Brussels : http://www.brusselsbrief.eu/#eu-trainee-bible-1
I know not all of us will get to work at the EP, but I'm sure we'll all find our way to Brussels. This guide could come in handy even for non-trainees. Wink

By this pace, it might be end of January until we get results. My main concern is not even getting an offer, having clarity on if i am a reserve might have made it easier for me to plan accordingly Sad i am sure many are in the same position. Anyways, patience guys, although i have lost it already Very Happy
