Since tomorrow some (lucky)one might receive a phone call, I thought it is about time to open this topic!
Let us know what you were asked, who called and whatever you feel like sharing...
And fingers crossed! pirat

EMPL wrote me to say that the selection process has begun and if they select me, i will receive an official e-mail at the end, but until then they cannot tell me more. so i suppose they do not do phone interviews.

i believe it was a bad strategy to give the outcomes of the pre selection process on friday (and as i understood some on thursday), because so, they did not get daily waves of e-mails, but all the e-mails from the past 3-4 days got concentrated in one shift. i hope, at least, they will check them chronologically.

I also received quite a few out of office messages. Mostly from ECHO and EAC. It looks like they'll be out of office until next week...

I have received a couple of emails. One was a "personal" reply, thanking me for my interest and saying they will consider my cv carefully.
Another email was a standard one from HR, it said the same things of Palindrom's one.
Another email was to inform me that the unit was not granted trainees.

I have got this:
"Final selection will be closed on Friday 14 June 2013. If you are selected the Traineeships Office will inform you by e-mail and then send you a trainee placement offer as from 19 June 2013."

"It is not necessary to send your cv again to DG EAC since all the relevant information you mentioned in your application form figures in the "Virtual Blue Book" and is available to the people responsible for the trainee's selection (except all personal details)."
I got this both from COMM and EAC....looks like some DGs do not appreciate lobbying

I am a current trainee in the EC and have posted here about the interviews (what can you expect from them and how can you get prepared meanwhile):

It was from unit D2, but the email was something standard about the whole DG COMM, or at least it looked like it.

No calls yet (I e-mailed units in DEVCO, EEAS, ECHO and Trade), no e-mails either except for out-of-office replies but those were mostly for the public holiday yesterday.

Anne Lise, the HR office of the EMPL wrote me the e-mail so it means that it applies to all their units.

hi everyone,

this is an email i received.

I'm afraid that my unit does not avail a Blue Book trainee post for the period in question. I wish you good luck with your search and hope that you'll find the BB post.

( this is for the unit of fundamental rights and rights of the child incase anyone sent an email there)

Hi!
I recieved 2 answers from DG ELARG. In the first and immediate they told me that the selection has already been done. But the second answer was that they will consider my CV..

Clearly even officies and personal assistants have now a lot of work after the long weekend... Smile

Fingers crossed!

Guys they all have automatic replies on the mentioned emails, there are sending everyone the same thing "thank you for your interest blabla bla" , I am quite sure they do not even read CVs or attached files.... Only thing that can maybe help to send an email directly to the Head of the Unit

Got a general e-mail from unit A6 in DEVCO, which also says "We might contact you when we are more advanced in our selection procedure."

I guess they are only just starting now.
