Well, the upcoming email won't change anything sadly. We'll just get more nervous until the results come.

Yes, the next mail that we ill receive is the notice about the start of the 1st round. I think they will send it the 15th, as they selected the same day as the last day to send the shortlisted documents (25th february).

So in 2 days we will know if the forest round has started?

But we'll have to wait some more days for the first confirmation letters right?

Last month, interviews happened around one week after the start of the matchmaking, and then confirmations at the very end of the month, if I'm not mistaken.

It is also possible, that for some people the first round results come even later, almost mid April.
The wait is already killing me. :D

Last year, we all received the confirmation / rejection the same day. The procedure has change since last year, so dont look before 2017 for dates (imho).
If they do the same than last year, the 1st round should start this friday (15th). They should send us a message at 28-30 saying when will finish and it ended the 9th.

I think that we will end faster this year. Last year, easter holidays were in the middle so everything was delayed. We could end this year in the first week of April, ( this is just a guess).

Still, apparently no one received positive feedback in April. They either got accepted by the end of March, of they were rejected in April.
I suppose something similar might happen this time.

Thats not true. 5 people where selected the 9th of April:
@emmepanta
@pauline
@circa_survive
@StefanVidenov
@chris-varles (he said that he wouldnt accept)

Everyone else, (including me), was told, (9th April) that we were on hold until they contacted everyone selected. They also told us that it was unlikely that someone would reject, so we wait untill 25th April, when we received the notice about the end of this year match-making procedure.

A few people were asked to do an interview with the company, (I wasnt asked to do it).
In the mail about the begining of the match-making they told us that it end on 28 and we received another mail later, instating that results would be announced no later than 10th April.

This is a wild guess:
28th is probably the deathline for the companies. Easter was the 29th, (i think), so they were on holidays for a week, (again imho). So they started to prepare the results by 6-7th and sent them on the evening of the 9th.

If this is correct, we could receive the results by 1-4th April, (if they keep the 28 date). But again, this is a wild guess based on no real basis.

It means that the company could potentially be looking at your portfolio at any time, and take a decision on you. So, mentally, it's quite an important day xD
And yes, it makes me super anxious too :D

I cant say names, (since it is confidential). But last year, only one company made interview, (only those that applied to that company said that they were interviewed). This company wasn´t this year in the list, so I think that it is possible that no one here receives one)

Wait, a company already contacted you? So companies already received our portfolios?

That´s weird. Have they started the first round without telling the applicants?

When did you received the mail and who sent it? @MK16

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

What I'm guessing happened is that they sent our portfolios through mail a couple days back, and they tell us once some time passed and all companies have received them.

So some might already have received them and started contacting.

On 13th directly from HR of the company I applied to. I did not expect they would have so many interview rounds. And as always only couple days to get them done.

Well, no email today. It looks like they have already started the 1st round, (I think we can confirm that since @MK16 has already been contacted by the company). I think we will have no information until the results.

I am supposing the email about the start of the matchmaking will happen on monday.
An alternative is that, as @hidesagred97 said, the matchmaking may already have started and we won't receive an email this year.

The case of @MK16 might be a mistake from the company, since I read somewhere that we are not allowed to communicate with companies directly, only through Vulcanus as an intermediary (which would include the interview arrangement, but not the interview itself of course). Anyone knows about this from other years?

The "rule" is that the student should not contact the company. The company is not affected by this rule afaik.

Interviews, however, have been rare in the past I think. So many people were accepted by the company simple based on the resume/letter.

Still no email.
I hope some people start getting accepted by the end of the month. I want this to be over already!!
Also @MK16, let us know how the interview went!

I completed all 3 parts of my interview. Just now I finished my 3 hour phone call interview with total number of people 6. I feel quite bad. But I'd rather not speculate on the outcome. I think I picked the most difficult company to get accepted to.

No news for me either...

Also today something funny happened to me :D
When I woke up there was a new email in my inbox with the subject "dissertation" from an email that I never heard of nor I was expecting from work or university.
I thought it was something from Vulcanus, like a long paper or my rejection (disertare in Italian means to abandon, kind of).
Well, turns out some girl in UK has the email address really similar to mine and I received her thesis by accident :lol: :lol:

No news here either. I will send an email to Margherita to ask her if she knows when we could expect results. I will do it later today and if she answer me I will post her asnwer ASAP.

EDIT: I have already sent the email.

I too have been shortlisted. I hope the results will come sooner than that date tho.
So no notification mail for the start of the first round I guess? Does that mean it has started already?

This was the case last year as well though, and apparently many received acceptance much before that. I won't lose hope to get a reply by the end of March in case I am selected :D

Good luck!!

Definitely, they are using the similar dates than last year. Last year, companies deadline was set by 28th March, (this is the date that appeared in the mail that Margherita sent).

Results were released the 9th of April, (Monday). Margherita told me that 1st round ended 8th of April, (also Monday). Probably, we will have the results that afternoon.

Just waiting for my fate to be decided...

Do fellows who applied for company whose positions are from 30 to 41 (not saying the name, because, you know, privacy and confidential stuff) have some news? Do they call for interviews?

Not many companies ask for interviews, it is not really a standard procedure as far as I can tell.
