I will arrive in Brussels on the 1st of March early in the morning.

Flight and accommodation already secured (I feel a lot more comfortable having this out of my way Smile )

Do you have any idea what we are going to do on the first day? All I know is that I have to be there at 13.30, but no other info.

Needless to say that I'm really looking forward meeting all of you Smile

Cheers and see you soon!

On the first day you get your badge, fill in a couple of papers, then have 1 day off (cos this is when the others get their badges and fill in their documents), then there is a 2-day welcome conference in Place Flagey (at least by now it was always there) and then on the next day you go to your unit and start working.

Hi,

I'll arrive on Sunday 27th. I've already found myself a nice flat as well in Schaerbeek. My landlady, who lives in the same building, works for the Commission herself.

So a huge stress factor less indeed... Have enough stress left as I have still to figure out how I can finish my master's AND do the stage at the same time... Will be very busy five months! Smile

My "administrative welcome" is on March 1st at 15.30.

Have you been in contact with your supervisor yet? I wrote him a short message, but got no reply so far... Didn't necessarily expect one either, I know that he's quite busy & those "dark suits" in DG Home can be quite formal. Wink

Oh yes, I've been meaning to call mine but she called before I got myself to do it! She was very nice, explained to me a few more details about the unit I will be working in and asked when I'm arriving, if I have arranged my accommodation and things like that.

I hope you have more luck in contacting your supervisor Smile it's nice to have some idea about the ppl you will be working with

Oh yes, I tried calling him several times, but never managed to catch him, at the end the secretary told me that "at best he is usually available after 6 pm". From which I took that this is a really busy guy (or just disorganised...), and thought I better just email him, and not bother him with a phone call.

Right now I want to have your supervisor, that is so nice and considerate of her! Smile I bet you will enjoy your stage in that unit. Which DG is it, btw?

Hah, your supervisor does indeed sound very busy!! I hope that he finds more time for you when you are there! Smile

My DG is Communication. And I really hope that I'm going to enjoy my stay there, indeed Smile

My Dg is Communication, so I think that I and Hendy will work toghether.
I have already contacted my supervisor she is very kind and she has given me some important information regarding the contents and tasks entrusted to me during my traineeship.
I'm going to arrive in Bruxelles on February the 26th and I have the information meeting on March the 1st at 9 a.m..

Now my only problem is find an accomodation! Can you help me?

Ok, so you both in Communication, so maybe your supervisors are not representative for all the others except mine. Wink

What comes to housing, have you looked at the other area of this forum?

http://ec-traineeship.findtalk.biz/f4-housing-in-brussels

There Aneena has posted some offers, but there are also some links to good pages. And what about the stage committee website, have you tried there (link & password were provided by the EC in our info package)?

Or if you can spend up to 600 euros, here are some rooms still available:

Good luck!

Hello everyone!

I am coming on the 25th of February to start at DG ECFIN. It is nice to see that some people have already settled in and are quite easily waiting for the start.. Wink

I have booked my flight, but still stumble a bit with accommodation. Still, I guess I will have no big troubles finding one. If anyone hears of a nice flatsharing opportunity, drop me a note pls. Tnx.

My administrative welcome is at 10.00. Maybe it's better to finish earlier. And eventually wait for some other ppl interested in meeting for drinks afterwards.. Very Happy

See you soon!

Hi everyone!

I will arrive the 27th in order to have some time to get to know the place.
I already found my new home and also booked the flight. I am a less stressed now Smile

My administrative welcome is the 1st March at 13.30. Do you think this welcome takes all the evening?

Looking forward to meet you all!
