How did your interview go? I am also interested in DG budget, if that was indeed the DG you discussed with, but not audit.

Have you seen that in another thread of the forum (http://ec-traineeship.findtalk.biz/t605-enlargement-dg#9140) ? the one I just saw is for the council of Europe, not for the EC.

They start in February

You are kind of stressed but had one interview and 4 calls?

How about those who didn't get anything so far?

Gyus, I want to share the information, today I got a reply from Mr. Curavic (ENTR.D.1, Entrepreneurship and Social Economy) that, unfortunately, they will not host any intern for their department.

That's a good question. As far as I know, they didn't do it in the past, but many things have changed this year. The preselection e-mail I got in November said:
"Language departments might contact you for an informal interview. Please bear in mind that these contacts are not binding and that only a written placement offer from the Traineeship Office Unit will confirm that you have been selected as a trainee. Placement offers will be sent out from mid-January."
Has anyone applying for a translation traineeship got a call?
Anyway, are those calls in your mother tongue / English/ the second foreign language stated?

Hello everybody

Just for your information: last year I didn't lobby anywhere, but I got 2 traineeship offers, without any interviews, just in my mailbox. (DG Education and Culture and DG Enterprise and Industry about pesticides- I didn't take them because I was accepted for a job abroad.) So nooo stress (yet) Smile (And my cv was very general!)

Well, I would say, that in case of translation applicants a potential interview should be in our mother tongue, since we are all aiming at a traineeship within DGT translating into our native language, as far as I understand the whole procedure (unless somebody has two mother tongues Smile). What I find really disturbing is the thought that we will have to wait until 15th of January to receive ANY info about our application...Administratives folks are at least getting in touch with relevant people already...And I am just staring at my ailbox with one eye and at my phone with the other... Very Happy

I really, really hope to get some kind of answer from the DGTranslation before the 15th of January! They said that placement offers will be sent out from mid-January, but this doesn't mean we won't be contacted by the language departments before that, either by phone or by mail. Moreover, in order to send the final placement offers, they must make sure we still want the traineeship, so I really believe we'll get at least an email from them...
I was asking myself the same question about the calls, so I tried to prepare a little for all of the 3 languages, just in case Very Happy Meanwhile, fingers crossed and eyes on the phone  bounce

I got an email that there will be made an informal proposal about me at the level of DG, than, The Traineeship Office (at the level of the whole Commission) will then make a final selection decision. I do not know how to interpret that email.

Any one got anything similar? For thoose choosen did You get any specific certain offer, how did it look.

I think all formal offers are sent at the same time, in January. If the Unit has already told you that you are their first choice, that's of course a very good sign (especially if more than one Unit wants you), but you still have to wait for January, for the confirmation.

Does the TO also receive trainees? That should be fun, discovering the "dark secrets" of the selection process Twisted Evil

Received today from DG AGRI (I had lobbied with the HU):

Note : You have received an e-mail from the Traineeships Office asking you to use this specific mailbox for any further communication. Therefore, please note that you might not receive a reply to any e-mail sent directly to me or to anyone else in DG AGRI


Dear Madam, Dear Sir,  

Thank you for your message and your interest for Directorate General "Agriculture and Rural Development" (DG AGRI).

The units in our Directorate General will make their selection in the coming days.

Final selection by DG AGRI will be closed around end of December 2013.

It's the Traineeships Office who will inform you, by e-mail, about the status of your application as from mid-January 2014.

I wish you all the best for the selection process.

Yours sincerely,

Hey, thanks for the information (despite I have not lobbied that Unit). Seems to me that every Unit has very different points of view regarding the trainee's selection timings, but I have the feeling that everything's going very fast.

Fingers crossed!

Thank you @andradaiulia for the info Smile 
Yes, this is the general e-mail sent from the DG AGRI's trainee service.

I was just wondering if anyone had heard from the Unit directly (secretary or even the HoU) via e-mail or by telephone interview...?

Thanks everyone !

Sometimes I get the feeling that so many units are closed for trainees in March 14 or, if they do receive trainees, they only have one or two posts. And still, there will be around 650 trainees...
