Yeap, i heard the same. That we should definitely not lobby and in case we do we are ruining our chances.

Do you know when the results will be out? I am thinking maybe to apply for the simple traineeship opportunity. What do you think?

I read in the email that the results will be out at the beggining of july (so we will already know what about the Commission). You can always apply for something else so you will have a choice  Wink

Hi girls!!

i was just wondering whether we have to lobby or not.... Because I did not lobby for the Commission (well, I didn't know that) but everyone who did it has been taken... Yes, I am quite disappointed and sad .... but ok

I think the lobbying process works for Commission only and it is not appropriate when applying to EP. I've read that when you try to lobby for EP your application may even be dismissed.

I have read that too. Apparently lobbying it's only appropiate for the Comission

Hi Angepsi, not yet. In the e-mail I received when I applied for this traineeship was written that the results of the selection will come in late July. :-)

Hi all ! Good luck everyone, I applied only for parliament since I thought I don't want to do another internship after I already have a masters degree and am looking for a real job, however, it doesn't look very bright for politics graduates right now so I will be more than happy if I get this internship !

Hi!
I received an email two weeks ago from the "Comité consultatif pour la prévention et la protection au travail" of the EP. It asked me CV and cover letter and I sent them. Now I wait!

Do you have received an email from this Comité?

Hi everyone! Very Happy I am also an applicant. I have not so much hopes of getting selected, as I'm not from the most common fields that usually are selected (Law, Politics, International Relationships, etc...), I don't have french and neither any previous experience in NGOs or political organisations. Even I regret a bit of my cover letter, maybe it was not so enthusiastic as I wanted. Sad But, in any case, I feel very expectant here xD

What's your background? Maybe it would be nice if we share it, in order to spend this anxious time before knowing if we get selected or not, and start our mad guessings Very Happy.

I come from Philosophy. I have two master degrees (Contemporary Philosophical Thought and Secondary High School teacher) and my languages are Spanish, English, German and Catalan. I put also a bit of Italian and French, but the "bit" is so little that you can't even notice it  Laughing Laughing . My experiences abroad are only the attendance to the Summer International Program of the Ludwig Maximilian University (Munich) for two consecutive years, but I really don't know if that stuff could seem worthy to get the internship  No .


PS.1: Lucia, I have not been interviewed still (and oh, I hope they won't do it hahah.)

PS.2.: CecyC, I have not received any mail from that Comité, but that request seems a bit weird to me, as you sent everything before to the European Parliament (with the application process, I mean). Maybe they had lost part of your data :O, or maybe it's just a kind of pre-selection, so that's perfect xD

Hey guys,

I think I agree about the weirdness of the request you received CecyC. I do hope it is valid though! Smile

3days ago I received an email from the European Parliament (Stages@europarl.europa.eu). The content of the email was negative, i.e. that i was not accepted for a training placement. The problem is that I applied for both for a Traineeships for university graduates - General Option or Journalism Option (Schuman Scholarships) and for a Training placement (for high school diploma holders).

I believe the email i received is from the second option since in the title it writes "Your application for a training placement in the Secretariat of the European Parliament".

Have you received anything so far for the Schuman Scholarships Traineeships?
I think I am loosing my hope here....

To answer to Rosenstock my background is: Bachelor in English Language and Literature, master in International and European Relations, Erasmus experience during my bachelor, extensive volunteer work in a youth NGO and some translation and teaching job experience among others not really related with my fields. Languages english, greek, swedish and bit of french.
I do believe my CV is lacking currently and it needs some work this following year, among other some training experience, some workshops in social media, some kind of EU simulation, and some more volunteerism in different subject - probably something in development etc so I do not feel very confident right now about results

Sad

Hi guys,

yesterday I received the response to my application and it seems I've been placed in the reserve list for Parliamentary Research Services, so is anyone willing to give up his/her offer for that DG? Razz

I still have not received any response, but, every minute passing, I feel more convinced that I won't be selected with my curriculum  Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes . We will see!. angepsi I think you have a very good profile! I hope you will be selected. Smile

(I think it would be perfect if I join some organisations in order to apply next time... I have the feeling this counts so much in the "magical invisible criteria" they use to accept us).

RaphaelR , my first option is also the Parliamentary Research Services, so I guess if they have sent the responses I am not selected.  Embarassed  But if I am selected, I think won't give it up :S. What's your profile btw? It's just to discard my possibility of being placed in the reserve list of that DG, comparing yours and mine  Very Happy 

I hope you all will be selected! Smile

Greetings!

Hi Rosenstock,

actually my CV is nothing special, I've obtained my Bachelor in Economics at the University of Venice then I moved to Utrecht in the Netherlands for a MSc in Economics of Public Policy and I just graduated. I have some experience in volunteering, I did an internship in Berlin in a private company and some other minor working expereinces. Besides Italian I speek fluently English and German, basic French and Dutch. Probably they'll put you in the same reserve list, good luck Wink

Thanks RaphaelR!. I hope knowing German and English is a good point for the selection. Good luck also for you! Smile

lucia8, my second option is DG Communication. It seems, looking the previous years, is one of the most requested DG for the applicants. I have not received any interview or contact from any DG still :'(

Hi everyone!

I have also applied to General Option, and I have not been contacted yet.
With regard to my background, I have a bachelor in law and a master degree in public international law, I did erasmus, participated in a summer internship abroad and did some voluntary work. I've already worked in a law firm and other places, and I am currently working in a consulting firm. I speak english, french, italian and a little bit of spanish.

Since some people already know if they got the traineeship or not,I guess it's just a matter of days until we all know the answer...

The best of luck to you all! Smile

Hi! I got the answer today! Smile I got selected to the DG Internal Policies... TRAN Committee. I'm very happy because from all the institutions, the European Parliament is my favourite, but I am sadly obliged to refuse it....
Yes, it's strange, but I actually got also selected to a one-shout lifetime experience that it's the College of Europe.
So, good luck everyone and never give up because this was the 3º time I applied and, imagine this, now I have to refuse it Very Happy

Hi all, I also have been selected to Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services, On-site and Online Library Services Unit in Brussels. Received the confirmation email yesterday evening. Several days ago someone titled "Online specialist at EP" looked at my linkedin profile so I guess the traineeship will be focused on online communication / online sources which suits my profile perfectly.

Regarding my background: I applied for the journalism option as I attended college focused on journalism and also have master from media studies. I'm now working full-time for an international PR agency and have also some experiences from media (I worked as an editor and also did some internships). I've also worked in marketing department of one global IT company (part-time student job). But have to say I've never worked in public sphere or NGOs. I speak Czech, English, Spanish and did erasmus in Spain.

Congrats to already selected and fingers crossed to those who are still waiting!

I have been selected to the Directorate-General for Internal Policies: Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs. My background is political science B.A. and M.A., and another M.A. in gender studies which I did abroad. I have been volunteering for the last 4 years at various NGOs, had a couple of internships, and can speak German and English in addition to my mother tongue.
