Hi!

I received a call from my first-choice a few hours after they got access to the Blue Book. They interviewed me there and then, in English and French, and said they would get in contact in 'a few days' to let me know the outcome. That was 9 days ago so I'm not sure what the situation is. I also received a call from a different department yesterday that wasn't in my preferences to ask me whether I'd be interested in working for them. They said they'd also let me know the outcome in the coming weeks. It seems to be different for each department. I'm sure it's possible that candidates are reserved without being told, so that might be the situation I'm in, but I'd at least have expected to hear back from the first one by now. Fingers crossed.

One thing I would like to point out is that the fact you are being selected by the DG doesn't mean you will get the final offer. Contrary to common view that basically an informal offer = formal selection, during the last selection in autumn 2017 I was selected informally by one of the agencies, I was their preference, but in the end Traineeship office made a different choice.

I almost wrote my resignation from my job that time, since I was thinking I had it... So be careful. Best of luck to everyone!

Hi all!

I was wondering if aynone who has applied to Esther EAC, EMPL or EACEA has had any interviews or e-mails back from lobby mails. And does anyone know how long it generally takes for the TO to spend out the official offers? I know their website says spthe start sending out offers at the end of June. However, looking at previous posts it seems like it could even be late July as well. I've got another job application going on as well but actually preference the EU.

I have been in touch with three DGs, two enquiring my interests and one phone interview. The latter said they would let me know by this week but so far I haven't heard back from them. Anyways, just need to be more patient I guess and good luck to y'all!

Hi, all.
I also lobbied to EEAS and I did get 2 replies: they do not have a trainee quota for Oct 2018. According to what I got from you and also from reading the previous year's postings, I believe the selection has just started, it not even close to being over.

Just out of curiosity - has anyone applied to DG SANTE or RTD? I only had one interview with one of the units of SANTE and I lobbied but no reply so far so I'm just wondering if they could already be done with their selection.

Hi guys,
anyone non-EU here? if yes-any contacts made so far?
Could there be a chance that non-EU candidates get the replies later than others?

Best of luck!

I applied for DG JUST and Legal Service, lobbied, got two calls from Units I had not lobbied (both DG JUST). It seems like the lobbying system was slowly wearing out, which frankly I would consider a blessing. Anyway, has anyone heard any details from DG Just by chance? Or anything at all from LS? I was told that I would hear back from them "in a while". Did anyone get more details than that on the DG JUST procedure?

Is there anyone at all who has already received their results? Very Happy At this point, it seems as if nobody knows anything.

I didn’t’ lobbied and I was contacted by DG taxud last week it was my first choice, they asked me if I was interested  and well I was a little bit confused about the selection process so they told me that it was not an official offer and they will reply definitely in the last week June - first week July. By the way, I wasn’t contacted by others DG’s so I guess that every DG works in different way.
My second choice was legal service but they don't contacted me, so I don't know if I was booked by my first choice or what happens... it's a mistery of blue book..
