Which DGs already started selecting trainees?

on Tue Dec 08, 2009 1:48 am
One member of this forum reported that EuropeAid started contacting applicants, asking them to send motivation letters. This Monday I got an email from Legal Service in which they inquire if I am available and still interested to undertake the traineeship. It is stated, however, that it does not mean I am selected, since the Traineeship Office will be the one to inform me of the final decision. Now, it is clear that this is good news, but how good exactly? Has anyone had a similar experience for the October session maybe? Thank you!

I have just learned from someone "inside" that most of the DGs have already selected their trainees......... Sad

I really doubt that. Look, there are approx. 2500 applications in the database, and according to the statistics from previous years some DGs receive ~500-600 applications. Some Heads of Units weren't even in place at that time (after my 1st e-mail a received "out-of-office" reply, with a not he'll be back on 7th of Dec.).

So you see - it's not that simple. And it's not without a reason they gave themselves time until mid-January Wink

Hey all,

just one question: does someone know if the DG for Education and Culture has already started the recruitment?Has anyone of you been called by this DG?
According to my informations, they will recruit until the 18th of December. Unfortunately time is going by and no one has called me so far. I hope this is not a bad sign.

DG Communication has just started making first calls, so it's still quite a long way to go. I received one 2day Smile

I heard from DG Communication - in Bxl and press bureau in Warsaw (what was a bit surprising). I know they have just began reviewing applications and contacting candidates.

DG Competition has started selecting people, I've got an email from Blue Book on Friday and a call today morning (without lobbying) and it seems that ... Very Happy.
My lobbying mail (to another Unit) hasn't been answered however.
