Hi guys...I am also interested in DG REGIO but haven't received anything so far except for an answer from Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy Competence Centre Macro-regions and European Territorial Cooperation tellin that unfortunately they won't have trainees :-(
So bad. I was looking into past selections posts and couldn't really find a lot on DG REGIO procedure. I mean, it wasn't even named in posts on interviews...
Do you guys have other info?

It's good to share this waiting with you all :-)

Same here, no calls yet and unfortunately I don't have any info on trainee recruitment of DG REGIO.

If I have any news, I'll let you know of course.

Thanks in adv!

I studied urban and regional planning and wrote my thesis about the influence of the eu policies on regional planning... so i'm pretty sure dg regio would be the best (only?) fit for me. Not sure which unit though...
I hoped there would be some trainees for sure, since they have a traineeship-emaildress at least... we'll see Smile

My current colleague was a trainee at the DG REGIO, she told me that they usually don't conduct any interviews, she received an offer at the end of selection procedure. Maybe that's why you haven't seen any discussions in the previous selections.

I have to admit that receiving an offer at the end of the procedure could be the best gift ever!
Isn't it?

yes I totally agree with you. Have you received any calls? As far as I am concerned, I so far no calls for me. I friend of mine has received a call from EEAS, but they didn't tell him how many people they are going to call.

As for me no calls. Mobile phone very quiet...however, I lobbied DGs which apparently have not started with their selection yet. The negative side is that those DGs are also likely to host less trainees so less opportunities for me but I only wanted to lobby for Units I am actually interested in.

Hey,
I just want to confirm that REGIO Unit D1 doesn't take any trainees for this comming traineeship-period, as MoreEU4all has allready stated.
Thanks Maltina for your insider-information!
Good week-end everyone!

Hello @Travisfull, may I ask which Unit call your friend? Was it today or days ago? I'm interested in several units in EEAS and since I have not heard from them, could be interesting to know if they're already calling candidates. Many thanks

Thanks for the useful info maltina!

I received this response from Directorate B, DG REGIO:

"Thank you for your interest in the Directorate General for Regional Policy.
We forwarded your e-mail to the service in charge of the traineeship applications."

Nothing special, just FYI.

Fingers crossed for all!

Zero news...seems like a phantom DG! By the way, it won't make that much sense to contact us this week, since we will get our answers very soon!
Guys which Units are you interested in? Which one did you lobby? Just an enquiry!!
Good luck, we all need it so far!

Since I'm among the people who haven't received any answer (neither positive nor negative) after the preselection yet, I'm still very curious: Has anyone actually gotten an offer from a unit of DG regio? Thanks in advance for answering.

Hi evaaa!

Thanks for sharing it. I have a couple of questions to ask if you don't mind:

1) Could you please share the exact name of the Unit?

2) Did you have an interview before getting the offer?

3) Lastly, could you tell us what your academic/professional background is?

Thanks in adv for your response!

I'll be in the cabinet of the commissioner (Cabinet of Commissioner Johannes HAHN - Regional Policy (22), CA.22.CAB STAFF - Cabinet Staff), I think it's not really a unit of the DG, but I expect some interesting work nevertheless Smile
Concerning the other questions: I didn't have any interview before and I just graduated from my master's degree (urban and regional planning at Vienna University of Technology). I studied one year abroad and did work in an internship abroad for three months.
Hopefully I answered all your questions Smile
