    Dear EPSO team,
    A quick question for you: can an already established EU official participate in any competition organized by EPSO? I believe there would be no problem, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks in advance for the answer!

    Bonjour,

    Je me permets juste de faire une petite remarque pratique sur l’organisation de ce site. Lorsqu’on navigue sur votre site, en français ou en allemand, et que l’on désire ensuite revenir à l’accueil en cliquant sur l’icône en forme de maison, la redirection se fait systématiquement sur le site en anglais, ce qui est un peu mal pratique et fatiguant à la longue, sans poser toutefois d’insurmontables problèmes, bien sûr, vu que l’on peut facilement repasser en français ou en allemand depuis l’accueil. Mais voilà, je me permets de signaler ça.

    En tout cas, merci pour votre formidable travail, ce site est, grâce à vous, un outil excellent et très rassurant pour les candidats aux concours.

    Bonne journée,
    Pierre

    Dear EPSO

    Since the administrator applications do not require professional experience, I would like to know what difference does it make whether I fulfill the this section or not?

    Are test usually on working days? Are they in the morning or evening? I might have to keep some vacation days for assisting these tests, although the CBT Test Center is in the city I live in.

    Thank you very much!!!

    “For a feedback on how we could improve this website, please leave a comment on this page.”

    It would be great if you could work on reducing the time it takes for posts on the blogs to get published, never mind answered. So far I have tried to post two queries, which were not urgent but asking justified questions about the application process that plenty of other applicants must have been wondering about as well. The first was asking whether a particular piece of information that was overdue by several weeks – without any comment from EPSO stating that there was a delay – would still be published, the second was a request for clarification on an announcement. In the former case, my comment was never approved, though twelve days after I posted it the piece of information was finally published and I received an email alerting me to that. In the latter case, it has been over two weeks since I posted and it still says “Your comment is awaiting moderation.”
    Sorry to complain, but I’m afraid that having to wait more than two weeks for my post to get _approved_ is just too long.

    Of course I understand that EPSO staff have to deal with a variety of different things and they cannot make responding to non-urgent queries on the application blogs one of their top priorities. I also appreciate that they can only pass on to applicants the information they have actually been given by the people directly involved in the admission process. But even so, I would much prefer a brief reply along the lines of “Unfortunately we haven’t got this information yet; we will get back to you when we have” to the current situation, where I can’t help feeling as though my queries are simply getting ignored, which is extremely frustrating.

      I understand your concern about the delay of answering, and I ensure you that we are always doing our best to post information as soon as possible, i.e. as soon as the information is available and can be published. As some questions are more urgent then others, we do not answer questions on a first in first served basis. But I will take your suggestion into account for future quesitons and I will inform you as soon as possible whenever specific information is not yet available for publication.
      Please be ensured that even though we may not be able to respond immediately to all questions, we will continue to provide updates that reflect most common questions and concerns as soon as possible.

    In due of the fact that the NoC has already been published, for the position of lawyer-linguistics, for the Court of Justice (Portuguese), I would like you to be so kind as to confirm the following:
    I have a master in Portuguese law, and a proficiency certificate in English. However, and despite the fact that I have worked in law firms and as an in-house lawyer in the area of drafting and translation, into Portuguese, of legal texts in French, and that I am currently working as a public officer in the VAT department of the Ministry of Finance, having to work with several linguistic versions of the VAT Directive and of sentences ruled by the Court of Justice of the European Union (namely in French, English, Spanish and Portuguese), I have no academic certificate in French. In this sense, I would like to know if it will be possible, for me, to apply to for such a competition. Based solely in my knowledge of legal French, acquired throughout my professional experience.

    About the rerun of AD/177/10.
    I received the email to register and I will do it soon. But accordingly to the rules, beside the fact that verbal reasoning will be in the second language (which, I think, risk to open path to further problems considering that in 2011 it has been changed, logically, because it would test language skills more than reasoning) there is something I can’t understand how to deal with: if we cannot modify our profiles it implies that 3 years of experience/ education get lost? I guess that what you mean is that we cannot modify it for now but, the ones who pass the test will be enabled to update their competence/skills and even motivation (personally I much more motivated and competent now than 3 years ago – and I am not alone!). Could you provide more information about?

    I received a message telling me that in 2013 will be the re-run EPSO selection procedure (EPSO/AD/177/10 competition) and I will be able to participate on it.

    I would like to know if the Computer Based Test CBT will be exactly the same way as it was in 2010 (verbal, numerical and abstract tests) without the Situational Judgement.

    Since 2011, the CBT includes the Situational Judgement exam and I would like to know if in 2013 the Administrators selection procedure you will be doing the same way.

    Thank you

    Which rules will the re-run of competition EPSO/AD/177/10 follow: the rules in force at the time of the publication of the competition (2010) or the new rules currently in force? I am mostly referring to the language of the verbal reasoning test: will it be in Language 2 (French, English or German) as it was under 2010 rules or in Language 1 as under new selection rules?
    thanks

      It is for the selection board to decide, within the framework set by the notice of competition, if studies can be accepted and if professional activities carried out can be considered as the professional experience required. The following information might be of interest to you (see especially the two last FAQs): http://europa.eu/epso/apply/faq/index_en.htm

    We read today on EPSO’s website: “15/11/2012 – 2012 Competition planning update – no selection for Assistants in the Secretarial Field” :The current economic climate calls for ambitious measures not only from public administrations in Member States but also from European Institutions and agencies. In the drive for greater efficiency and savings in administrative expenditure, changes to the Staff Regulations which govern the working conditions of the EU civil service have been proposed. One of the changes expected concerns secretaries and clerical staff who in the future will be recruited under new conditions of employment. In the meantime, it has been decided to postpone any selections for assistants in the secretarial field (grade AST 1) and changes to the indicative planning for the 2012 assistant cycle have been made accordingly.” Could you please inform us on how this influences the people that are currently on the AST1 reserve list? Has a provision been made for us (laureates of EPSO/AST/117/11 – Assistants in the Secretarial Field (AST 1) – EL, EN, ET, FI, FR, GA, HU, IT). Your feedback on this will be highly appreciated

            That is what I though also but it was a printing mistake and there was a corrigendum to it – so the list is valid until 7 August 2013. That is why I would like to know how much in advance usually they decide before the expiry date – a few months before or only in August – any estimation?

      Dear Rosa and Marie,
      There is quite an important difference between your estimated times for publishing the results of the AST3 competition (before the end of Sept vs during the second half of Oct). This is quite confusing… and you can probably imagine how stressful it is for us candidates to check our EPSO accounts every day eagerly awaiting the results :). Could you please give a final and firm confirmation of the expected period for results publishing? This would help us to stop “holding our breath” and to forget about this competition until that time approaches!

    Dear Natalie,

    I would like to ask what the reason is for such a long waiting period for the test results. I am not an IT expert, but with a multiple choice test taken on a computer, I would believe it would be possible to know our scores instantly after the test (there are such tests), or at least when the test period ends. Could you please tell me why we have to wait for such a long time? What is EPSO’s procedure after the test are written? What takes them 1,5 months?

    Thank you!

    Best,

    Sorry Nathalie,
    I was trying to reply to an earlier comment and didn’t put the competition number.
    I meant EPSO/AD/215/11. You said earlier that the results will be published “not before end of June”. Does that mean after June i.e. July or later or by the end of June i.e. as latest next week Friday? I’m leaving next Friday and will not have access to internet at all times during couple of months.
    Thanks!

    When you post competition results, could you please indicate the position title (for ex. “Childcare Staff”) along with the competition number (ex. “CAST selection XYZ/2011″) in the post/e-mail subject?

    That would make notifications via e-mail much easier to understand.

      We are publishing statistical information and other useful information on the major steps in a competition procedure, such as the number of candidates, the thresholds for the different steps of the procedure, names of selection board members, key dates in the procedure etc. As publishing statistics and reports is quite a resource intensive exercise it doesn’t allow us to provide every set of reports requested by candidates, even if we would like to be able to do more. We hope that you will understand these reasons for not publishing on our web site the information requested by you.

    Hello EPSO team,

    I’m newly registered and just opened an account successfully and can log in again. I would like to apply for a Linguist position grade AD7 this year. The site has a wealth of information and it can be overwhelming. I’m pleasantly surprise to see that there’s a forum like this one to speak with a real person.
    My questions are:
    -After opening my account I didn’t get a confirmation by email is that normal? I can’t seem to see anything that looks like an EPSO inbox to check my mail strangely.
    -Will I get an email within the next 48h to book a date to take the Preselection Test (computer based)?

    Many thanks

      Dear Elodie,
      You just created your EPSO account, but you did not yet apply for a specific competition. As far as I understand, you want to apply for the linguists competition that is planned to be published in July at: http://europa.eu/epso/apply/index_en.htm Please check the indicative planning for exact dates: http://europa.eu/epso/doc/epso_planning_en.pdf
      In the competition notice that will be published in July, you will find all information on the competition procedure, including information on the different tests.
      As long as you did not apply for a specific competition, you will not receive any mails in your EPSO account.

      Sorry, for insisting. I’m leaving end of June to a place where I don’t have access to internet at all times and will stay there for almost two months. It would be therefore nice to have the results before that.

        May I ask why these results take so much time to be ready? Since they are “computer basedd”, I suppose that the results are instant, i.e. as soon as the candidate completes them. or are these tests manually checked?

            Dear Nathalie,

            thank you for your reply.

            Yes, I am a candidate of the EPSO/AD/230-231/12 (I am the same Dimitris who asked the first question of this thread).

            The link was indeed useful. Unfortunately, I did not know we could contest items of the tests immediately after sitting them. I had indeed one item in my verbal reasoning which I would have contested (I do not remember its exact content today). Will keep that in mind for next time. Unfortunately, this clarification was only published after I had sat my tests.

            This brings me to another point which should be improved. Despite registering on the first day registrations were open, and despite booking on the morning of the first day of my booking period, I only had a choice of 2 dates (I think 4 and 5 April) merely 5 days after booking. It is difficult to believe that all dates in May in Brussels (3 test centres) were booked when I had done everything on the first day it was possible to be done. This gives a feeling that the “later dates” are reserved for certain candidates…

            It is indeed very pleasant to have the possibility to discuss with somebody, this improves the already good opinion I had of this website. Perhaps it would be even better to have this discussion in a “forum”, so as to make it easier for people to find answers to questions they have but may have already been asked by others (and answered by the EPSO team).

            Thanks again!

            Dear Dimitris,
            Thanks for your comments on the procedure. I will forward them to my colleagues in charge.
            I would just like to ensure you that no seats are reserved for certain candidates. It’s just that seats are gradually released. Otherwise all candidates would book the latest test dates and those who validate their application later would not have any chance to find a seat.
            I’m very happy to get your feed-back on our new communication platform. Some pages already work like a forum where candidates can ask their questions and answers are posted online (see for example the pages on the CAST procedures – ). As this platform is still a pilot project (with restricted dedicated resources), we did not (yet) open all the pages for questions. In the meantime, questions on your competition should indeed rather be sent to my colleagues at the candidate contact service: https://europa.eu/epso/application/passport/webform.cfm?usertype=2&lang=en
            In the meantime, you could also have a look at our FB page: http://www.facebook.com/EU.Careers.Ive.Applied

    Dear EPSO team,

    I just wanted to say I think you do a great job, thanks for all your hard work and for dealing with so many requests and complaints in such a calm and efficient manner.

    As you requested feedback about the site, I wanted to suggest also having a section on upcoming competitions (I know the planning exists, but this is a more dynamic environment in which to communicate).
    Having applied for the recent AD7 competition, I’d be interested in hearing about other opportunities that fit my profile (whether CAST, AD, AST or specialist) as soon as they arise.

    Oh and is there any chance you’ll be publishing the number of AD candidates who effectively sat the tests?

    Have a nice day!

      Dear Sara,
      Thanks for your positive feed-back and comments. We will have a new web site published hopefully before summer. There will be a completely new section on upcoming competitions. I hope you will fiand that useful, but don’t hesitate to send us your feed-back.
      Concerning your last question: we do not yet have these figures. As far as I remember, we did not publish these figures before, but I will check with my colleagues in charge.
      I wish you a nice week-end!

    Do you really think it is necessary to check every single comment before it is posted publicly?
    It would facilitate, enrich and speed up communication (especially between us candidates), if postings were visible immediatly after they are written.

    Dear Natalie,

    I did yesterday my CBT in Lisbon, but during the test a problem hapened related with the time established for the10 minutes break. I am deeply worried about the negative impact that this ‘event’ could have in the final results of my CBT at this very first phase on the Competition (Competition for AD5 -230/231-12).
    I’ve already send an email to Epso (via the webform available) and also a message to Prometric in order to present the case and expressing my deep concern about this situation. As far as I know the tests at the Prometric Centre were recorded, my check in and check out time were also registered on the authorized documents available at the center, so I believe EPSO and Prometric have the necessary information to evaluate the case.

    I’ve sent those messages yesterday but I’m a little bit worried because I haven’t received so far a proper response to them from EPSO (except an automatic reply from Prometric).

    This is a serious matter and I believe it has to be handled with the required sense of urgency. So may you please tell-me if you have any kind of feedback on this situation?

    Kind Regards
    Isabel

    I will be taking my tests at the following adress:

    I would just like to add that I believe it is clearly communicated by epso that the instructions of booking the test will appear within 48h and that booking will only be possible during a short period. I personally would then expect that a candidate really eager to participate would log on to their account frequently during those days.

    Hi,

    Just to second what some people have been saying – the period during which one can book CBT is very short, and in my case fell over a weekend when there was also a family bereavement, which meant I wasn’t online. There was no advance notification, so I suspect that I have been automatically withdrawn. It’s a shame that the period for booking is so short, and that there is no advance notification. Maybe consider for next year:
    1) Enabling email notification
    2) Giving a longer window for booking CBT
    3) Not setting CBT booking deadline mostly over a weekend
    4) Carrying out on-line CBT rather than having to travel to a test centre

    Just some suggestions. I have sent an email RE bereavement and missing deadline and hope to hear back soon, but I don’t harbour much hope.

    Cheers,
    E.

    Hello,
    I would like to share with EPSO and with all the candidates my enormous dispointment over the CBT tests booking process. When connecting to my account today, I have realized I had missed the deadline by just a few hours. I very much regret the short timeframe that was given to us (4,5 days only and over a weekend) and the fact that no public communication was made regarding this schedule. I am sure many other candidates are facing the same situation (and I have read a couple of posts on this topic here already). I don’t think such timeframe and lack of communication has provided us with a fair and equal opportunity to participate in the competition. I have submitted this opinion to EPSO through the webform, but I also wanted to share it publicly on this page, hoping other candidates who react as well.
    Thank you.

    Dear EPSO,
    This website is a very good idea,congratulations for it! It is also very nice of you to be open to feedback from the candidates.
    I will take this opportunity to give a friendly feedback ref the competition: I validated my application relatively early I think, on April 4th, but nevertheless I only had ONE possible date on which to book my CBT test in my country. With great efforts, I will manage to attend the test on that day (however inconvenient it is for me), but I do think that it would be fair to any candidate to be able to choose between at least 2 non-consecutive dates (possibly with a several days/1 week between them). Having only 1 possible date is might be causing some very good candidates to not attend the test – which could be a loss for your institution, since your purpose is to attract all the best people in this competition.
    I hope you will consider this feedback in future competitions.
    I wish you all the best!

    My booking period ends on the 23rd, but this morning when I checked the dates available, there was only one left (24th) so I booked it although it would be a huge inconvenience to make that date. In the meantine, however, a friend who is also applying told me that another test center in the same city opened with more possible dates. Since I have to reschedule 48 hours before the exam and I might have to wait 48 hours to get the instructions on how to reschedule, will this be possible?

    Hello Nathalie,

    In your post about the late validation of applications you said that you don’t know why people aren’t validating their application early. At least in the UK most Master students will have essays and exams until the end of April. Maybe that is why they are trying to take their test as late as possible. I have read that the tests are organised in phases. People probably don’t want to validate in one of the earlier phases and then not be able to take the test after their university exams.

        Dear Sir/Madam,

        On the 3rd April EPSO posted that “very few amongst you have booked the examination center”.

        I think one of the main reasons is because first, applicants are not informed in advance when they will be able to book the examination center. And if it was only this, fine. But secondly, and I believe this is a serious problem as it jeopardises the equal opportunities of applicants is the short time to book the examination center. We had just 4 days to book and those days were during Easter holiday period. Therefore, among some of us, the acces to internet was limited.

        I do not believe that under these conditions equal opportunities and the “reasonable time” have been respected by EPSO.

        In addition, when someone wants to complain about this situation, there is no way to contact EPSO in an easy way.

        I hope you can improve this in the future as some of us are very disappointed.

        Best regards,

        Isabel
