CAST COMMUNICATIONS - I passed the selection tests, what's next? | EU Training


EPSO contacted me via my EPSO account to inform I passed the selection tests (reasoning + competency tests) for the CAST and that I will be contacted for an interview.

Since I received this notification already 2 weeks ago, and that there are no information about the timeline for the recruitment test (interview) I was wondering if anyone here could share his/her experience or relevant information.

When could I expect to be contacted for the interview? Is it a matter of weeks, months, year or could I be not called at all?

Thank you!

Hello SaraCara,

you might or might not be contacted - it depends whether any department / DG / unit of the EU institutions find your CV / professional experience relevant to the vacancy they are willing to fill. If yes, the recruitment service or HR department will contact you straight via email. So it is not a general interview that will definitely follow - you might as well be contacted only after 2-3 months or later, or not at all. There might also be emails only inquiring whether you would be interested in a certain position, asking you to send your updated CV and motivation letter. If they shortlist you based on these, you will be contacted for an interview.

Good luck!

Dear SaraCara,

congratulations for passing the first stage of the competition. I hope the invitations for interviews for follow soon and the outcome will be successful for you. I would be grateful if you shared how you prepared for the competency test. Were the EU Training tests useful in preparation and did they resemble the real CAST Communicators competency test.

Thanks in advance.
