hello everybody. today is a new day for standing by the phone and thinking if you should worry more that they will call and start the interview immediately or they will not call at all.

so, how's life?

anxiously awaiting phonecalls or e-mails, even another general "thank you for your interest, you may be contacted at a later stage" e-mail would be great. bounce

Has anyone heard from Trade yet?

Hello everyone,
after being preselected for the blue book, yesterday afternoon I received an email from a Unit within Dg Connect describing me their activity and asking me if this could be interesting for me.
I took it as a good sign and I reply this morning with a detailed email.
Did someone else have a similar experience?

Hi guys! Today I received the following email:

Dear applicants,
Many thanks for showing interest in our unit. We received an unprecedented number of very high quality applications and we looked at your candidacy with great interest.
We have now finalised our selection process and unfortunately we cannot offer you an traineeship position in our unit.
Best of luck for your other applications!
David

It looks like a general email, probably sent to all the rejected candidates. So I guess they have already selected some trainees. (Unit F3 of the Secretariat-General)

Anyways, yesterday I received a phone call for ANOTHER internship I applied for, not in the EU, but in Unicredit Group..and they chose me!
So at this point I hope I won't be selected for te EC traineeship, because I would have to refuse, and it would be annoying....

Congrats! Always good to have a backup plan!

Has anyone from you heard from the legal service or dg taxud?

What do you think, should I lobby to other units and dgs since I didnt get any reply from those I chose?

Nothing from ECHO and DEVCO, except for one "thanks for your interest, we are shortly starting the selection process" message.

Hi guys!
I have looked at this forum for a while but have not posted anything...and I am not sure if I can contribute a lot, but I'll try...my profile is quite specialized in one field and I am interested mainly in EAC. I've sent some emails them but received automatic reply stating that the head of unit is out of the office this week and one "it is not necessary to send your cv again to DG EAC..." .
It seems that they are not so quick... Has anyone heard something more specific from EAC or know from previous internships?

Good luck to everyone! Smile

Thanks Wink They asked me about my experience and explained about what they do and what they are looking for in a trainee. They are calling a couple of people today and then they'll decide.

so far it seem that only 2 or 3 in this forum have had interviews, so right now it seems to be rather an exception than a rule to get one. But some units might not be that fast.

wow congrats rocknrohl!!!!! i think they will shortlist like 5 people and then call their number one. if a unit they you prefer calls and selects you tell them yes and that there might be another unit considering you. they will solve it out between them.

congrats again!!!! i guess in dg comp they have already decided so im probably out Sad

@ rocknrohl - Smile thx!

I have one question more - I'm just very curious! Have you used any words such as competition or similar in your application form? I've tried to search my form this way I after that I'm very afraid... that I won't be selected.

I only heard back from one unit in the EEAS on Tuesday, saying that they were still awaiting the confirmation of whether they'd have a trainee or not.

Yup, I've heard from EEAS. They thanked me for my email and told me they will keep me posted about the selection. It was on Tuesday morning and so far I haven't got any other news Sad
