PostSubject: Traineeship or "proper" job   Wed Nov 15, 2017 5:03 pm

Hello everyone,

after a decent number of failed attempts, I have finally passed the preselection phase (March 2018). The "problem" is that, in the meanwhile, my temporary job (bound to end right before the start of the Traineeship) was converted into a permanent one.
Now, the question is: how much is the traineeship worth? With the goal of working in EU policy consultancies one would think that it would be nearly a prerequisite, but at the same time quitting a full time job in a related field for a five month traineeship doesn't sound the smartest thing in the world.
I know that it's still early to think about it, but what are your thoughts? In your opinion, is the Commission's name on the CV worth more than a steady increase in a private company?

Cheers!

I can imagine the traineeship to be worthwhile even for people who already have the opportunity to have a decent full-time job. Can't you talk to them about the possibility of giving you the position after you finish the traineeship? It might be attractive even for them if you come back with that experience.
