Only one placement from 30-41 company has been filled. Damn sad

Unfortunately I applied for one of them :(

Sorry @hidesagred97, maybe there are other oppurtunities, like a normal internship or other type of works!
But yeah, it sucks not to be chosen :cry:

Congrats everybody!
Now starts the hard part for the rest of us waiting :(

My guess is that they send all emails regarding certain companies on same days, so as soon as I know that someone who applied for the same company as me get selected I surely start panicking XD

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

Maybe they could just notice people as soon as they get selected, not waiting till they have all the companies selections. But, if I remember correctly, when hidesagred97 asked Margherita she said that the matchmaking will finish on the 6th of April. So we have another week max of waiting :cry: :cry:
