2.Traineeship

 

The European Commission traineeship programme is open to university graduates, from all over the world. Traineeships are available in a wide range of fields and offer a great insight into the work of the EU. The content of the job largely depends on the service to which you are assigned. Opportunities are available in the fields of competition law, human resources, environmental policy, communication and many more. Most traineeships last around 5 months, but this can vary, depending on which institution/ agency for which you work.

 

Duty station: Like the majority of EU jobs, most traineeships are based in Brussels or Luxembourg

 

Deadline: not specified

 

Description: Trainees are given the same sort of tasks as newly-recruited graduates. In practice, that can mean organising working groups and meetings, compiling information and documentation, preparing reports and answering queries, as well as participating in unit meetings and other events. There will also be tasks more specific to the particular department – lawyers in the Commission will be doing quite different things to economists at the Court of Auditors or generalists in the Parliament.

 

Open to: Graduates of any discipline can apply as long as their degree has already been awarded (a transcript can normally be provided if the certificate has not yet been awarded).  Unlike permanent positions, EU citizenship is not mandatory (a small number of places are reserved for non-EU citizens), but generally knowledge of two EU languages will be required. Work experience and postgraduate education is a plus, but not usually a necessity.

 

Wage: The majority of traineeships get a monthly grant, of around 1,100€/month and their travel expenses reimbursed.

 

 

Application process: Selection procedures for traineeships are run by the individual EU institutions and agencies. Check Quick Guide to EU Traineeships for more information. Applications are usually online, but paper copies of the application form are sometimes required. In general, applications are accepted about four to nine months before the beginning of the traineeship and applications should be submitted in good time.

Hi everyone!

 

My name is Nikola and I come from Croatia. From October 2016 until the end of March 2017 I was an Erasmus+ trainee at the Giovani nel Mondo Association’s headquarters in Rome, Italy. One of the last assignments I was given was to write something about this experience. I hope you’ll find it motivating and inspiring and that it will encourage you to look for a similar experience yourself.

 

The whole experience started when I decided to look for a traineeship abroad. It was a moment in my life when there were only a few months until my graduation day and I was looking for something to do next. I wanted some practical experience, I wanted something that can help me transition into the world of job hunting. So after all the emails that I had sent and when I almost lost all hope that I will find anything on time I received a positive reply. Roberta, now a dear friend and a former colleague of mine, asked me if we could set up a Skype interview. I remember that it was to take place on Thursday. The interview went pretty well and after filling out the proper paperwork I was ready to set off.

 

I worked in the International Relations Office and my main job was to help spread the word about the International Careers Festival by calling universities and other organizations worldwide. I think I made a million calls. Well, maybe not a million but I think the phone bill was pretty high. “Hi, do you speak English?” became my most famous phrase that everyone in the office knew about. At times, I felt like a parrot . Besides that, I helped our applicants with any problems they experienced during the registration process and with their visa applications. It was good to know that you contributed and helped others, especially when they come to you and sincerely thank you.

 

Most importantly, I worked with an amazing team! Every day people from different backgrounds met in one place to create something great. It was truly inspiring to be a part of it and to learn and grow personally and professionally.

 

At the end of this experience I can say that I have acquired new knowledge and experience I previously didn’t have. I improved my English and I improved my Italian. I am now half Italian. I developed my communication and my teamwork skills. I can also say that I have met some amazing people I will remember for the rest of my life. Saying goodbye to them was the hardest thing I had to do during this traineeship.

 

To wrap things up, it was an enjoyable and fulfilling experience I will never forget. And if you still have doubts about doing it yourself, throw them out the window and just do it!

 

Nikola Jurak
