Answer from the Commission?

on Fri Aug 23, 2013 2:14 pm
Hello fellow applicants!

My question to you is a straightforward one and I would really appreciate if somebody shares insight on this:

When would we know if we have been pre-selected for the Blue Book? Is there a set deadline (i.e. after the application deadline) or is it on an on-going basis?

Has anybody got an answer at all already?

Thanks,

Alexander

Hi!
I applied last time and got pre-selected. However than I have not been definitely selected, so I hope this time I´ll do better.

Last time they sent the email about pre-selection results on Friday after-noon. So maybe tommorrow? Or next week? nobody knows..:-)

Good luck!

Hi JakubCZ,
since you got pre-selected last time I'd like to ask you what DG you had applied for and what happened after pre-selection. Did you send emails with your CV? Did they call or contact you for an interview?

thank you and good luck to everybody flower

Well, I did send my CVs, I did contact those DGs. However I got only general answers that they "carefuly examined my profile but they chose someone else."

But generally it seems good to send some emails. But there were people who didn´t send and they got accepted and even some of them were contacted and accepted by the DG they didn´t choose at the beginning.

I think there is not a concrete detailed system. It depends on the needs of every DG. But according to some webpages which advice candidates it´s good to lobby bounce Laughing

Hello everyone!

My name is Alexandra and I am new here. I am as intrigued as you are regarding the application and I must say that am I also confused because I do not understand quite well what is going on. For example, I have received that e-mail from EESC informing me that my application is valid and will be submitted to the European Economic and Social Committee's internal services. I have also checked my application status and it says: application form valid you can only check your data. And that is all.
So what should I do next beside waiting? Does anybody know how long it will be untill we receive the great news that we have to send the required documents?
Did someone received some information about this?

Thanks:)

First of all, congratulations on your selection!
Second of all, EC and EESC are two separate institutions, with separate selection procedures and schedules. And, most importantly, EESC receives a lot less applications than the EC thus requires less time to select their interns, I would assume. However, if you have applied for both, it is up to you to consider which one you want more. But don't run after two rabbits at once Wink :p. I am afraid we will have to wait for the reply from the EC by end November at the earliest.

As far as EESC is concernerd, if you don't have the information in the email, you should write them. You can also visit the website. Though I am no aware of their exact procedure, I believe you should send in a hard copy of your application file and wait for the internship contract. But double check with the EESC traineeship office.

Yes, I did, yesterday actually. But it was just a reminder to get the documents prepared if we are confident we will get pre-selected (which will be out on 18Nov exactly), not the actual outcome of preselection.

Yes, I also received a mail yesterday. But I think it was just a reminder for the documents if we get selected. I think all the applicants received this, don't know for sure.

Considering that we have from Nov 18th do Nov 24th to send the documents mentioned in the email, I suppose that we will know if we are pre-selected Nov 15th.

Hello all,

I have been following the discussions here and got great tips gor the application and about the selection procedure - thank you for those! Smile

I was wondering who the right recipient of the lobbying emails would be, maybe you would have some good ideas for that.. I wrote in my Motivation Letter that I would prefer working at the DG Taxation and more spefically, in a unit dealing with direct taxation. Thus, there are several units I'm particularly interested in. However, all the units are under a certain directorate so I was wondering whether I should send my e-mails direct to the heads of units or to the director of the directorate in question. What do you think is more appropriate?

Thank you for your answers beforehand!

I really don't know who is the best recipient of your lobby emails.
Just think about the fact that we are not unanimous about the utility of lobbying. According to several former interns, it is actually completely useless.

Pre-selection for translators?

on Wed Nov 13, 2013 3:18 pm
Hi,
I see everyone has received an e-mail to keep the documents ready to send in print, but I haven't received any information at all. I think maybe it is because I'm applying for the translation traineeship and the DGT has no pre-selection. Has anyone applying for the DGT got such an e-mail?

Maybe that's the thing. I also applied for translation traineeship and didn't get any email.

You are right!
I was checking the email that I received and it is specified:

"Reminder e-mail to all candidates for the administrative traineeship on the preselection requirements"
