    You have to first you must identify when the interns are being hired normally they are hired from 2 to 4 months so you must pay attention to the adds in the oficial PE website. It would even better if you apply through a network connection. Personally I identified when they where hiring and previously I set a network on which to increase my odds and when I got the interview it was eisy sailing. the hardest par is getting in contact and taken out of the paper pile.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult thing in getting an internship in the European Parliament is the tremendous competition there is. People know 2 to 5 languages normally they are already studying a masters degree or doctorate its restless people so you have to stand out in this time of environment. My suggestions is getting prior experience and network or it will be impossible.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at European Parliament in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Getting on a reserve list is not everything one needs to achieve to get a job with the EU Institutions. Getting singled out off one of those lists may be just as titanic a task. The interview was a series of open-questions and behavioral-style ones in order to understand the ability to fully and swiftly integrate in a team. One is really supposed to get into the groove quite rapidly, if offered a position.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Everything is very clear from the get-go, there are salary grids and there is no way to get out of those.
