Hi everyone,

If any member receives information about being pre-selected or asked to submit documents for the CoR, September 2015 intake, could you please send a message. Thanks and good luck!

Does anybody know about how many people have applied and how many people will be accepted ?

Furthermore, does anybody know some news if someone has got a letter of pre-selection ?

Thanks !

According to CoR website the timeframe with target dates for the autumn session is 15th April for verification of criteria and 15th May for pre-selections... so it's still early. http://cor.europa.eu/es/about/traineeships/Pages/how-applying.aspx

Normally, more or less if I am not wrong, a number of 30 chosen ones are selected for each intake :/ so good luck to everyone!.

Capoversos, Let's hope that they keep the deadline. I haven't received anything either since the email notifying me that my application is valid.

Where did you get the number of trainees from?

Hey, no, I honestly don't believe it means rejection, I think they will send out this week to everyone.
Good luck Smile

Anyone got a pre-selected mail for Unit C4? They say there are too many candidates and only one will be picked for each Unit :O That's crazy!

Hi guys,

I have received an email of pre-selection and I have already uploaded all the documents, but it seems as the online application form does not work. In fact, after uploading the documents, I receive the email and everything seems ok, but then on the online form there is no document! Is everyone having the same problem?

I didn't receive any e mail, yet, so I don't know. By the way, I cannot find anymore on the website the list of documents that need to be uploaded. Can someone copy paste here?

I uploaded all documents today and received confirmation that the application with CoR has been modified. However they are still not present when I log in. It is strange that some can see their uploads and some can't.

Could those that had interviews with the CoR today tell us what sort of questions they were asked. Is it as it was indicated of general nature or they would like to see whether applicants have done research on their unit. Thanks in advance.

Hey I already had a call and as I missed I called them back. It was only five minutes. I am really passionate about my UNIT and I was utterly excited but unfortunately they did not ask anything about CIVEX or why I did chose that one. They only confirmed with me the jobs I had and asked if I was ready to move to Brussels in September. I think it is a general call to see our language skills. They promised to give a feed back in 4 weeks

Thanks hannyzsofia, and good luck! One last thing, did they ask you to answer questions in the languages that you have indicated or it was only English / French conversation

Just wanted to share my info: I got pre-selected for the Unit E1: Forward planning, studies and academic networks (which was actually on my preference list). I received the e-mail from the unit on the 4th of May and on the 8th of May, after I uploaded my docs, they announced me that I was shortlisted for an interview (in total they shortlisted 8 people, as they mentioned in the email).

I had the phone interview on the 13th of May (I was given the chance to choose between 3 different time-slots) with the head of the Unit and his assistant. It actually lasted for almost one hour, with questions ranging from my professional experience, to whether I want to continue in Brussels at an European Institution, and my motivation for a traineeship with CoR - but nothing very specific to their unit. The conversation was in English, but for 10 minutes, we switched to French, with very basic questions - really just to check whether I understand and I can speak in French.

Finally, they said the results will be confirmed in June.

It is so weird because my experience could not be more different. We had a brief chat for 10 mins and I think they did not expect me to call them back once I had a missed call.
Also they highlighted they have a lot of application for this UNIT so maybe it would be very time consuming for them to have longer interviews.
Good luck everyone!!!Smile

Hi guys,

has someone been pre selected for the EMAS department? Anyway, I am having the interview this Thursday and I am really nervous about it. Do you have any advices? I have written in my application form that my French is very basic, so I think they will only conduct the interview in English!

Of course it is not a secret. I have three languages, during the interview she switched to French but since she knew that my level is basic I was allowed to answer in English. She just wanted to see if I was able to understand it or not.

it was not longer than 15 minutes. She already sent me the main tasks that I would be doing in case I am selected and she was asking whether I feel comfortable at dealing with them or not and how my previous experience could help me. I have no idea about how many people have been selected for this unit, as the EMAS is very specific. I asked her when it is possible to have an answer but she told me that she has no idea about the timing.

Anyone got any news regarding the CoR traineeship? I noticed that with the EESC some applicants have already received confirmation of being selected.

Not here... My status is still pre-selected awaiting for documents. I have emailed them to check if they received the documents and they confirmed it...Usually the EESC gives the answer quite late compared to CoR!! Hope we do not have to wait too long...
