Hi! Oh, and...¡felicidades! Very Happy May I ask you when you received the good news? Just so we can know when has the Spanish department started calling people.

Although I guess this confirms my worst suspicions - the rest of us Spaniards in this forum have been most probably rejected. Crying or Very sad Oh, well. Too good to be true!

Once again, congratulations, Traineeship2013! Very Happy

Thanks, Lilo! I got the offer on Monday morning, and they asked me to give them my answer by today at 17:00. I don't know anything about other future Spanish-speaking trainees, but good luck!!!

What do you mean? Very Happy I haven't received any answer yet!

Hopefully they won't just disappear without bothering to send a mail to everyone, even those of us who haven't been selected. It wouldn't hurt them, and we would at least be done with the endless waiting and hoping for good news. Personally, I'm quite fed up with checking my e-mail 24/7. Just tell us 'no', so that we can forget about this for once and start focusing on something else. Evil or Very Mad It's the very least that we deserve, after nearly 3 months waiting for updates on our applications.

I tried too, i received this reply :
 
Dear All,
Directorate-General for Translation has received 2348 applications in total.
A part from the receipt of notification, you will not receive any other news.
There is no preselection procedure in DGT.
Only selected candidates will be personally contacted after 15th June.
Due to the current workload, we will not be able to answer each individual email.
Thank you for your understanding.
DGT-Traineeships' Coordinator


hoping you' ll be more successful!!!!!

It doesn't really say anything this email!
Contacted after 15th june...ok, but which is the final delay? the end of the month? even july? some candidates have already been contacted!
It's quite annoying all this...

I received the same answer... so no further infomation...I imagine we still have to wait...but until when? For the Spanish people, if Traineeship2013 has already been called and asked for an answer and we still haven't received anything, I imagine that we have to tell ourselves that we haven't been selected this time? What do you think?

We haven't been selected. I mean, miracles could happen, but why would they call us now, like a week after Traineeship? I am quite dissapointed and of course feel sad and worried for not having been selected, as the other options that I had are starting to fail as well, but...to me, it's over with the EC. I'm just waiting for their mail.

I don't know really... But as they said to the selected candidates that after mid-June all candidates would have been contacted, it could be any time...Exclamation We don't have much information about the selection procedure for the Translation Traineeship so it's really hard to know what's really going on... Shocked

I don’t understand how they do that... Anna o. from Poland wrote on 4th of June that she was rejected  and that they wrote that our selection was over and I got nothing...

In my confirmation e-mail it says that as soon as they have contacted all the selected candidates, we will receive an e-mail with further information. As we have not yet received this e-mail, I can only guess that not all selected candidates have been contacted. Maybe this helps..

what i understand from rhis is that ONLY selected candidates will be selected and the others will have no response at all!that can't be the case!i mean...they should at least take the time ro send a short notification also to those who weren't selected, right?anyway at this point my hopes are all gone :-(

As someone already pointed out, if you read the threads from the previous traineeships periods, you'll see that even the non-selected candidates received an email. The selected ones received a phone call and an email and the non-selected just an email. It would be too bad if they didn't say a word! So let's wait and see...Rolling Eyes

This is the reply I got today...


I spoke to my colleagues in the unit in DG Translation dealing with traineeships and they said that if you don't hear anything by the end of June it means you have not been selected.

Thanks for the info, GiannaS! I have one doubt though: do you think this information is true for all the translation traineeship candidates or is it just for your language section? As far as I know, each language department picks its own trainees. My department (the Polish one) told one of the applicants that their selection was already over and that was like 2 weeks ago. I wonder if that means they have already contacted all the selected candidates or perhaps they just made a list and are going to get in touch with people by the end of this month. Of all the Polish applicants on this forum, no one has received any information yet, but that might as well mean that there are people out there who have been chosen but they don't know about this forum and they can't get in touch with the rest of the candidates.

I guess as a general rule, we should wait until the end of June, as I was told. Although some language units may have already taken a decision. I suspect some people may not have been aware of the Forum or they may have chosen not to reveil that they have been selected already. Who knows...

I received such a reply:

Thank you for your email request.
 
You will be notified by email if you are selected or not for an internship within DGT by the end of June 2013 or in the beginning of July 2013.
 
Kind regards,
