    I have been working at European Parliament full-time (More than a year)


    A good place to start your career in politics or similar. You will gain exposure to a wide range of policy areas and can access language courses and other types of training.


    The extent to which the job is enjoyable really depends on which MEP you work for. If you have a bad dynamic then it can be a really awful experience, there is no accountability for poor management or protections in place for Parliamentary Assistants. Progression can be difficult depending on your MEP, your role may be very rigid, many offices are very hierarchical and the atmosphere is often cutthroat.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key, listen to your staff and lose the ego. Actively seek to provide opportunities for progression and try to cultivate a supportive atmosphere to avoid the bullying and backstabbing that often takes place in this highly competitive environment.

    Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at European Parliament (Brussels (Belgium)) in June 2015.


    After an extensive online application, I was contacted to have an informal short telephone interview of about ten to fifteen minutes. Five members of the office called me, each asking one question. The questions were rather easy, but the difficulty was to give good answers in this very short amount of time. My recommendation is to prepare very well what you want to answer. Find the right balance with not too much, but also not too less or unnecessary/vague information. Customize your answers, for example regarding the question on your biography/interests in the EU, clearly to the position as Robert-Schuman-Trainee.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your biography and interests. What is the role of the European Parliament within the European Union? Why are you particularly interested in this position? What skills would you bring for this position?   Answer Question
