Guys don't worry, those who received an offer have the time until Wednesday to confirm or reject the offer. In case they do reject it (like myself), maybe you are the first one on a waiting list... so don't lose hope yet

Hi everybody!

Yesterday I accepted my offer from the Executive agency INEA. (Anyone else? Surprised )

Got previously contacted also by DG Energy and another agency but kept in contact with my choice.

Also congrats to everyone that already received an offer and to those who haven't yet - good luck and don't lose hope, it's too early Wink

Hi, guys!
I was informed today that DG TRADE had already booked all trainees. Has anyone received an official offer from DG TRADE?

Hello guys,

K.B - EEAS is not my choice, but I send an email to the DG of my preference asking about my situation (I mean what happens I'm in I'm out - a little bit of drama) so finally after 2 days they reply telling me that they are still interested (they asked for my reservation)
Maybe if you try to send an email or if you insist (like me) they will also inform you.
Good luck
K.B

Hi everyone!I received my offer on Friday in the DG EAC (which was my first choice), after previously sent them an email asking about the status of my application and whether or not they had already reserved all their candidates. So there is still time and hope for everyone waiting and the selecting procedure will run until late August. Good luck to everyone still waiting and congratulations to those who are in! Anyone else in EAC?

Hi Maria,

Congrats to you!
Did you send that e-mail to one of the addresses in the attached list that we received in the beginning of June?

I am a bit confused because i see that many people are actually sending e-mails/lobbying to different e-mail addresses of those in that attached list, which to me would be out of the rules, but anyway.

If there is someone that received an offer/news from DEVCO, NEAR or EEAC, I would be very thankful to know... so at least I can stop hoping for good news Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Thank you in advance.

Good luck to everyone.

Hi Mimoza,
seems like we are sitting in the same boat - 2 out of 3 of my choices overlap with yours. So far nothing back from them but I received this email from the traineeship office:

Although the bulk of traineeship offers have been sent out, it is possible that some cancellations will follow and recruitments are currently ongoing to find replacements.

The process continues right up to the month of September (and even later given that duration for a traineeship is for a minimum of 3 months).

We wish you the very best of luck and we do hope that you manage to secure a successful placement.

Hi K.B.

So does that mean that NEAR, DEVCO, EEAS have sent their offers already and we were not the lucky once? It would be really useful to know that.

Thanks!

Hey there,

It seems like we have very similar experiences. I was also not aware that lobbying at specific units was common practice and when I realized, it was already too late it seems (I sent my emails on June 23). I did eventually get a reply from an EEAS unit I contacted that might also be of interest to you: He told me today that they had already found a candidate and already had so before I sent my emails (i.e. in early June). Would therefore not surprise me if indeed we did not get lucky this time unfortunately - not taking in account what K.B. just posted.

I am in a similar situation guys. I did lobby quite a lot but 90 % of my emails have been disregarded. This , however, may very well be due to the fact that I am a non-EU citizen. Still wondering how likely it is to get an offer without previously been contacted.

Sounds like if you are non-EU, you have very minimal chances... I am a non-EU and 99% of my emails have been disregarded...

I heard today from DG DEVCO that "The selection process for the stagiaires is already over"...

BTW guys, when you lobbied, have you sent your CVs? I only sent my bluebook #... did i make a big mistake?

Maggie007,

which e-mail did you use for communication with DEVCO? The one from the attached list in the pre-selection mail right? It's really sad, that they don't give any clear answer to us, that have not been selected.

Best,
Mimoza

On your question: I don't know which is the right way to do it. I didn't send my CV, but just candidate number. I also contacted only my three preferences via the e-mails, given in the attached list.

Best,
M

It's kind of over: (upon a question received this answer)

Although the bulk of traineeship offers have been sent out, it is possible that some cancellations will follow and recruitments are currently ongoing to find replacements.

The process continues right up to the month of September (and even later given that duration for a traineeship is for a minimum of 3 months).

I lobbied and sent my CV as well during the very first week.Received just 1 reply stating that the selection process has began )) so no-you haven't made any mistake.
The people I know that had an internship (EU candidates of course), did not even lobby, this is a very subjective process and our input does not seem to be making much difference.

Has anyone else also applied for the traineeship at the European Parliament? I got an email today stating that I was shortlisted and I'm not quite sure what to do now (I've already accepted an offer from the EC). Do you guys know which place is better in terms of traineeships? I've heard the traineeship at the EC is better organised but, well, that's not a very comprehensive view Very Happy

Hey guys, I also got an email today from the European Parliament saying I have been shortlisted. However, it states that being shortlisted is no guarantee of an offer, does anyone know what the likelihood is of an offer once you have been shortlisted?

Hi everyone. I also recieved an email yesterday from the EP saying that I have been shortlisted. How long do you think it's going to take to recieve an official email after I send the documents they requested? What is the likelihood of actually being accepted?

Hey,

Looking back at forums from previous years, those who were shortlisted started receiving confirmation emails around the beginning of August. So I presume it might be the same for us?

Hi everyone in the forum!

I would like to ask you guys if you know whether different DGs or units can send us the offers simultaneously. I mean is it possible to get two offers at the same time?
I received my offer 5 days ago, and I am asked to accept/decline it within 7 days. However, the offer came from a unit outside my preferences. What happens if I decline it? Would the traineeship office take it as if I don't want to do the traineeship this year. Or would then other units access my application and be able to send me their offers (in case they select me, I suppose they can't do it once one offer has already been sent to me. Could anyone advice me on this?

On my email there was no mention of a transcript with our grades so I only sent over the diploma.
